Kohsuke Kawaguchi talks about Hudson, a continuous integration system that he's been developing for the last few years. It is a web application that continuously builds your project and keeps track of what's happening.

A part of the talk will be about the general introduction of it and what it can do. A demo will be shown, and a highlight of most interesting technologies behind Hudson.

These include the plugin system, the remoting infrastructure, the way distributed builds are handled, how installation is simplified, and the avoidance of cryptic URLs in a very REST-full web application.
