DaveBot - An example of Standards and Compliance enforcement in Buildmaster
As the development cycle accelerates and teams become more automated the enforcement of standards needs to move in a more automated direction. Enter DaveBot. Davebot is a series of script that we have implemented in large organizations to allow us to move forward with CI and deployment automation while still keeping Architect and Auditing groups happy. Focused on an environment consisting of windows and web .net development on SQL servers the talk will present examples of the standards we current enforce and review the details of how these checks were implemented.
