Some time ago we ran a survey asking a few questions about the build process, specifically the tools that are used to do incremental builds and how much time those builds take. We had over 600 responses, so now it’s time to count the results.
This is the first time that we’ve published results on the incremental build process, so the information is more likely to serve as a guide than an authoritative information source. That being said, the information is still quite interesting, and if it serves to start a conversation that improves the process of even one team, then we’re proud to have helped out. If you haven’t answered the 3-question survey yet, take two minutes and go for it – and do let your community know about it – as more answers trickle in we’ll update this post with the new data. If you’d like to play with the results on your own we‘ve provided all the data and our calculations in a handy Excel sheet that you can download here.
