Apple Acquires buddybuild

From the buddybuild team blog:

We’re excited to share that the buddybuild team has joined the Xcode engineering group at Apple to build amazing developer tools for the entire iOS community.

I have never used buddybuild myself1, but I have always heard good things about it. I like the idea of Apple building more Continuous Integration features into Xcode, and this looks like a step toward that.

I would love to see them build something like Xcode Bots that could run on an Apple-provided service like buddybuild instead of requiring me to have my own Mac for it.

  1. I try to keep as few third party dependencies in my build system as possible.
