I had the opportunity to publish an article for .Net Developer’s Journal: Refactoring Your MSBuild Scripts.

MSBuild is Microsoft’s new build engine. It is intended to replace NAnt, and in a way, DOS. It is an extensible Xml-formatted list of build commands. You can read the official MSDN documentation for MSBuild here:

There are already several basic tutorials for MSBuild, I wanted to write an article that was a little more advanced, and explain how to write better scripts.
