Nowadays, Agile application development is usually done at a fast pace when many developers are working on the same piece of code. Every so often, this becomes a real challenge if there's no permanent control over consistency of the project source. It is often impossible to force lazy and/or busy programmers to execute tests before and after each of their commits. Continuous Integration is a well-known life saver for distributed development environments with TeamCity being one of the best and easy-to-use instruments utilizing it.

"TeamCity" is kind showing in a sequential approach - how to start implementing Continuous Integration - over generic projects and enclosing rich features of the TeamCity as a project gradually evolves
