Channel 9 MSBuild Video Update

A few weeks ago I blogged about a video that I was in on Channel 9. Since then the creator of the video Russ Fustino has decided to break out his It's All About the Tools series into individual video entries. He has been posting 18 different videos for 18 consecutive days. I think this is a great idea, because it allows people to go right to the content that they are particularly interested in. There are a bunch of different topics covered from Visual Studio DB Pro to using Fiddler and of course my MSBuild Twitter Logger video which was posted just the other day. If you haven't seen this video yet now is your chance, take a look and let me know what you think. I'm interested in making more videos so if you have some specific topics that you think are cool let me know.

Me on Channel 9

When I was in Orlando presenting at the Orlando Code Camp I had the pleasure of working with Russ Fustino and Stan Schultes on the latest edition of Russ' Toolshed - It's All About the Tools. This is a Channel 9 show that Russ has created. You can check out the video that I'm in at Episode 2 It's All About The Tools TV Show.

The topic that I discuss in that video is how you can create a custom MSBuild logger to update your Twitter page to keep everybody informed about the build. I love how using a REST based api can be so simple when appropriate. Since Twitter exposes one, of course it was pretty simple. I think that this is a pretty cool application of a custom MSBuild logger, and as far as I know it is the first of it's kind. You can download the source for my logger from my company's page sedotech.com and clicking on the MSBuild Twitter Logger link there.

Check me out in that video, I'm presenting from about the 50 minute mark to about the 65 minute mark. The guys were teasing me saying that I type fast, I don't think so, do you?


This is my second video on Channel 9, my first is described in my post at http://www.sedodream.com/PermaLink,guid,4db4f0b7-9d23-4c64-9fd1-992fb2ae1727.aspx.

My MSBuild Video on Channel 9

This past weekend I gave a presentation on MSBuild at the Tampa Code Camp, which I'm glad to say went very well. Besides that I met Brian Johnson from Microsoft. He shot a video of me discussion using MSBuild and Web Deployment Projects to automate deployment of Web Projects. You can see the video at http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/brianjo/Sayed-Hashimi-on-MS-Build/

Let me know what you think, I'm pretty excited because this is my first Channel 9 video.

The sample demonstrated here was inspired by some content that can be found in my new book Inside the Microsoft Build Engine. The book will be published the beginning of January, please buy several copies! I will post more detailed information about the book soon, but we have completed working on it.
