The Continuous Integration Monitor is a tool used by developers to keep track of the health of a project codebase. When I worked at Pivotal Labs they had CI Monitors throughout the office which displayed all of the projects currently being worked on. This display is designed so that a developer can raise their head and quickly check the status of their project, see its build history, and track the team’s velocity over time. If a project is “good” it is colored green, if “broken” it is colored red, and a project with unknown status is grey. I interviewed developers in the office to ensure that the right information was prioritized and it was of ultimate utility to all.
