Credible Android Development with IncrediBuild 5.5

Developed by Xoreax, the immodestly named IncrediBuild software development and Continuous Delivery (CD) acceleration technology, is now supported by and compatible with Nvidia Nsight Tegra, Visual Studio Edition for Android.

Its makers suggest that this will accelerate the development process for creating Android applications directly within Microsoft Visual Studio.

"This integration adds another layer of acceleration capabilities for Android developers and release managers, letting them get products out the door at the high speeds demanded by the app marketplace. IncrediBuild is a major advancement in running development tasks in parallel and allows for simple integration with major compilers, IDEs, and other development tools," said says Eyal Maor, CEO of IncrediBuild.

Parallelizable Traditional Development Tasks

IncrediBuild can operate across a local network, public/private cloud, or hybrid environment, so using underused CPU capacity to accelerate parallelizable traditional development tasks such as source code compilation, testing, QA, and code analysis. Videogame developers and movie producers have utilized IncrediBuild to parallelize video rendering, lighting simulations, physics simulations, and pre-generation of physics and artificial intelligence acceleration structures.

Nvidia Nsight Tegra, Visual Studio Edition provides a software development experience for authoring and debugging Android applications from within Microsoft's integrated development environment. Engineers can develop for Android within the same source code, alongside PC and videogame console platforms.
