Build Automation with Cake
Do you have a complex build process? Is your CI build not quite the same as building locally? Can you grab a fresh copy of the source code and be up and running in minutes? Cake is a build automation system based on C#. Find out how you can use Cake to orchestrate the entire build process, from compiling, testing, package and deployment. By using C# as the build DSL, you'll feel instantly at home! Hear about David's experiences moving from a traditional multi-step CI build process to driving the build entirely with Cake. See how you can make use of Cake's impressive built in functions and 3rd-party add-ins. Learn how to leverage Cake's extension model to write your own addins to provide custom functionality.
