R – How to offload a build to a server to stay productive


I have several large projects that I work on. Depending on the project and options, build times are from 10-100 minutes long, rendering me useless for that time.

I do have a few extra computers laying around however. Is there anyway that I can configure these computers as 'compile nodes' so that I can still work while a build is going on?

I've heard of software plugins for Visual Studio for doing this, but I've seen the price tags. I'm looking for something that's preferably free or under $100-ish.

Best Solution

You could set up a free TeamCity continuous integration build server.
