It's interesting what you can find online. I was going through some of my newsletter emails and stumbled upon this simple yet nice article on how to set up a local continuous integration server with Subversion and Hudson.
The article is divided into 2 parts - the first one walks you through installing and setting up the system including downloading and unpacking to running the commands needed to install. It then moves on to showing you how to check out a project with Subversion to get you running.
In the second part of this article, it quickly continues from where it left off in the first part. Tackling running Hubson and dealing with errors and compiling the build file needed to run the server.
If you have never used a continuous integration before, I'd suggest you take a minute to check it out. In fact, one of our recent recruit having gone through the article is now tasked with setting up a sample build system for us.
This is a nice and harmless way to get your junior team members to get their hands dirty and learn something in the process. You never know when something like this might come in useful.
