Introduction to MSBuild Presentation Deck, Examples and References

Thanks!

Thanks to all the folks that attended my Introduction to MSBuild presentation yesterday at the Team System User Group – Virtual Edition meeting. I found it an interesting experience.

As promised, I’ve attached a link to the presentation materials and demos. Below you will also find a (by no means comprehensive) list of sources for using MSBuild.

I’ll be presenting this at a couple of upcoming Code Camps, so if you have attended one of these presentation…this is your download too. 🙂

Here is the link to the download: http://manicprogrammer.com/cs/files/folders/st_jean/entry8576.aspx
