Abstract: Continuous Integration (CI) has been widely adopted in the software development industry. However, the usage of CI in practice has been ignored for far too long by the research community. We propose to fill this blind spot by doing in- depth research into CI usage in practice. We will answer how questions by using using quantitative methods, such as investigating open source data that is publicly available. We will answer why questions using qualitative methods, such as semi-structured interviews and large scale surveys. In the course of our research, we plan on identifying barriers that developers face when using CI. We will develop techniques to overcome those barriers via automation. This work is advised by Professor Danny Dig.
