Now that you've got that test suite written how do you take full advantage of it? Continuous Integration Testing is the practice of automatically running your test suite against any and all changes committed to your code repository. Java has Cruise Control, Python has Buildbot but nothing has really taken off in the Perl world. There are Perl solutions (CABIE, Tinderbox, etc) which we will compare and discuss their short comings. We'll examine common homebrewed techniques that provide the 90% solution while discussing what an ideal system would look like.

It doesn't matter if this is your first project with a test suite or your hundredth, anyone looking to take their automated testing to the next level will benefit from this discussion.
