This Wednesday (Nov 15) I'll be presenting at the Chicago .Net User's Group on MSBuild: A Process Automation Language. Pizza starts at 6:30pm, the presentation at 7:00.
.Net 2.0 introduces MSBuild – Microsoft’s new build engine with a process-oriented scripting language. While MSBuild is marketed for compilation and build processes, it is really a full-fledged automation language. It includes structured control flow, variables, refactorability, error handling, logging, and powerful extensibility. You can easily integrate MSBuild into your own enterprise processes and start adding value right away.
It should be a good time.
