Hudson's new life

I went to a little going away party for Kohsuke Kawaguchi. He's the fellow that started (and has written most of the code for) Hudson, a really great continuous integration server. It's totally extensible and can do everything from automating builds, running test suites, collecting benchmarks, monitoring development status/health to monitoring any kind of external execution (like procmail). He started working on Hudson as a spare-time personal project, then it became his day job (one of his day jobs, anyway). It's changed the way that I and many others do software development. This isn't the end of Hudson, it's a new birth: KK's starting a new company around Hudson. You can contact him at his personal site
