comment Are “Compile to JavaScript” Frameworks Hostile to Continuous Integration?
@JeffO Probably not, but a full rebuild could be helpful on a nightly basis, or even multiple times a day, if possible.

Depending on the settings, the GWT build can take over 20 min. The separation of pure Java/GWT makes some sense, actually.

comment Looking for companies with strong R&D departments, specifically for A.I., but I can't seem to find many. Are there only a handful?
I just read an article suggesting that large companies are fairly poor at R&D, and that it usually gets "outsourced" to start-up communities. The strongest start-ups then get acquired by big corps.

The fact our codebase is somewhat "young" (approx 6 months old, gone through several major refactors) could be an indicator of this.

@MichaelT The code base is for our automated test code base. We're about to start work on a new addition to our project which will likely need some parallel development for a bit. Hence the discussion of feature-branches vs others.

Great description of a good Git workflow, but this doesn't quite answer my question.

I'm guessing this isn't from an open source project. If it were... :)
