I’m delighted to announce that I will be presenting "Automating Builds Using MSBuild" at the Bristol VBUG meeting on Wednesday 29th March 2006. Here’s the abstract:-
MSBuild is the new build engine from Microsoft. It is included with the .NET Framework 2.0, Visual Studio 2005 and Microsoft Vista and is designed to build software. The software can be based on .NET Framework 2.0, 1.x or no .NET Framework at all. This session describes how to create build scripts which will automate the building of your software for development and deployment purposes. It covers the basic elements of MSBuild project files, how MSBuild works and more advanced subjects such as writing your own build tasks. This session is relevant to all developers who develop using Microsoft platforms.
The Bristol meeting is a classic user group meeting with regulars and newcommers and even though it is my home town and I am obviously biased I thoroughly recommend it. Chris Myhill as ever will be chairing the meeting providing his friendly and down to earth collection of news and information about the .NET world. Come early and we can have our usual chat about tips, tricks, and anything that’s on your mind or any problems you want solved.
The doors open at 6:00pm, we chat until about 7:00pm when the presentation begins and the presentation ends at 9:00pm when everyone either goes to the bar or goes home.
The venue is The Bristol Golf Club (St. Swithins Park, Blackhorse Hill, Almondsbury, Bristol BS10 7TP). There’s a map here
