Visual Builds Board

At TargetProcess we develop by feature. This means that all the user stories and bugs have multiple branches. We maintain quite many builds, as branches should be tested one by one. Visual Builds Board shows statuses for all the builds. This simple .NET application retrieves data from Jenkins and TargetProcess and makes it visual.

See the screen below. Passed builds are green, orange builds are running now, failed builds are red.
