A new "Extreme Feedback" contraption - shoot the dev who breaks the build!

Chris Dance
Hi All,

Just a quick email to let everyone know there is now a new Jenkins
"Extreme Feedback" device with a twist.  This one automatically
coordinates a foam missile counter-attack against the developer who
breaks the build!

It's all in good fun and has been a real hit in our team so we've
decided to generalize it and put it out the Jenkins community.  You
can read about our adventures including a "demonstration" video here:

http://www.papercut.com/blog/chris/2011/08/19/who-broke-the-build/

The code's over at github under the name 'Retaliation':
https://github.com/codedance/Retaliation

If Lava Lamps, like pink curtains and shag pile, are not your dev
team's style then maybe "Retaliation" is for you :-)

Cheers,

Chris

This is hilarious!

You should hyperlink this from "Extreme Feedback Device" section in

KK - when you see things like this, do you usually forward to the community email address? I linked to this blog post from FB last night. Today we'll Tweet it. I love sprinkling humorous, developer content (related to Jenkins and/or CB) in our various social media. I think it engages developers a bit.

Are there specific places where this kind of post/blog is more readily found? I can troll through them occasionally. I now subscribe to the Jenkins users email alias, so I will catch anything there, just as I did with this one.

Thanks for forwarding this to the Jenkins email list! The blog is funny, Jenkins-specific, and is really well done.

that's great...
Can we look forward intercontinental missile launcher in future releases?  
This would be usefull in case that the dev team is spread over the world:-)

i wonder if it would be possible to search for THE developer and then shoot :) in case they are not all in one room. seems http://www.dreamcheeky.com/storm-oic-missile-launcher
might do the job
