Evolution of an Automated Build System – Brian Watson (Desktop EDA)

Desktop EDA develops a number of small CAD “Add-in” applications that interface with multiple versions of multiple CAD products. As a result of making too many errors in creating application builds when making product changes, Desktop EDA decided to automate its product build process. After abandoning a couple of custom developed solutions, Final Builder was implemented.

The presentation took us on Brian’s journey through the custom solutions and why they were rejected and showed how Final Builder is being used for EDA applications.
