This weekend I will be speaking at the South Florida Code Camp. This has historically been a very popular event (>500 people) with a lot of good speakers.
I will be presenting 2 topics there, the abstracts are below.
MSBuild 4.0 What’s New
MSBuild, the Microsoft Build Engine, was first introduced with Visual Studio 2005. This was MSBuild 2.0, and it was delivered along with the .NET Framework 2.0. The next major release of MSBuild, version 3.5, was introduced for Visual Studio 2008 and was deployed with the .NET Framework 3.5. Now the third major version, 4.0, is being introduced with Visual Studio 2010, and in concert with previous releases is being shipped with the .NET Framework 4.0. In this session we will talk about the new features included with MSBuild 4.0 and how it can make your MSBuild files better. The topics we will talk about will include.
• Inline Tasks
• Property Functions
• Item Functions
• Before / After Targets
• Support for C++ projects (both native and managed)
• New Object Model
In this session we will demonstrate how to greatly simplify deployments of web applications using MSDeploy. MSDeploy is shipped with Visual Studio 2010 and is available as a separate download. Visual Studio 2010 has enhances support for MSDeploy and we will go over many of those details in this session. We will also be discussing how MSDeploy can be used as a stand alone tool outside of Visual Studio 2010. So if you are not able to upgrade to Visual Studio 2010 but developing web applications this is still a great for you.
If you are in the South Florida area this is definitely an event that you don’t want to miss out. Please stop by and see me!
