      • Executing a Build
      • Default Process
      • Editing Build Types
      • Build Process Customisation
      • Writing Custom Tasks
      • Resources
    • Introduction to MSBuild
      • Microsoft supported build engine
      • XML-based configuration file
      • Intellisense available from Visual Studio using supplied schema
      • Ships with .NET Framework 2.0, it is NOT part of Team Foundation Server
      • Both Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server leverage MSBuild
      • Command-line utility - MSBuild.exe
    • MSBuild Concepts
    • MSBuild Concepts
      • Projects
        • The root concept in MSBuild
        • Defines the build process
      • Properties
        • Name/value pairs
      • Items
        • Set of objects (commonly files)
        • Can specify meta-data to be applied to the objects
    • MSBuild Concepts
      • Targets
        • Defines a number of sequential tasks
        • Projects can have initial and/or default targets
      • Tasks
        • Performs an operation
        • Uses properties and items
        • Extensible
    • Examine a .vbproj File
      • Demo
      • How does this work?
        • Extends Microsoft.VisualBasic.targets
        • Which extends Microsoft.Common.targets
    • Introduction to Team Build
      • What is Team Build?
        • Service
        • Properties
        • Targets
    • Introduction to Team Build
      • What does Team Build do out-of-the-box?
        • Clean the build area
        • Retrieve latest version of source code
        • Label source code
        • Compile one or more solutions
        • Run code analysis and tests
        • Deploy binaries to a drop folder
        • Provide centralised logging and reporting
    • Introduction to Team Build
      • Extends Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.targets
      • Supports customisation
        • Configuration files
        • Customisable properties
        • Customisable targets
      • Supports extensibility
        • Custom tasks
        • Team Foundation API
        • Build eventing
    • Creating a Build Type
      • Demo
      • Creates three files in Source Control
        • TfsBuild.proj
        • TfsBuild.rsp
        • WorkspaceMapping.xml
      • Best Practices
        • Avoid spaces in the name
        • Choose a long-term name
    • Executing a Build
      • Demo
      • From within Visual Studio
      • From the Command-Line (TfsBuild.exe)
        • Also allows you to stop a build and delete builds
      • From the API
        • Continuous Integration
    • Default Build Process
      • Generate build number
      • Clean
      • Get
      • Label
      • Compile
      • Create work items
      • Test
      • Drop
    • Desktop Build Process
      • Compile
      • Test
      • No status report
      • Not part of build history
      • Launched from the command-line:
        • MSBuild TfsBuild.proj /p:SolutionRoot=....
    • Editing Build Types
      • Directly edit the files in Source Control
      • Team Build will automatically get the latest version for each build
      • Because these are stored in Source Control we can reproduce any previous build, but make sure you keep your build dependencies in Source Control
    • Editing Build Types
      • Demo
      • Attrice Team Build Sidekick
    • Build Process Customisation
      • Each step in the build process provides customisation points
        • BeforeEndToEndIteration, AfterEndToEndIteration
        • BuildNumberOverrideTarget
        • BeforeClean, AfterClean
        • BeforeGet, AfterGet
        • BeforeLabel, AfterLabel
        • BeforeCompile, AfterCompile
    • Build Process Customisation
      • Customisation points continued
        • BeforeTest, AfterTest
        • BeforeDropBuild, AfterDropBuild
        • BeforeOnBuildBroke, AfterOnBuildBroke
      • You can override the other targets, but beware!
    • Build Process Customisation
      • Demo
      • Override build number
      • Get
        • SkipGet
        • ForceGet
        • RecursiveGet
        • Partial get using WorkspaceMapping.xml
    • Build Process Customisation
      • Skip process step variables
        • SkipClean
        • SkipGet
        • SkipLabel
        • SkipInitializeWorkspace
        • SkipPostBuild
        • SkipDropBuild
        • SkipWorkItemCreation
    • Build Process Customisation
      • Location variables
        • WorkspaceName
        • SolutionRoot
        • BinariesRoot
        • TestResultsRoot
    • Build Process Customisation
      • Demo
      • Work Item Creation
        • Change Assigned To
    • Writing Custom Tasks
      • Either implement Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask
      • Or, inherit Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Task
      • Provide Team System “awareness” by passing $(TeamFoundationServerUrl) and $(BuildURI) as properties
      • Avoid requiring Team System when not necessary
    • Writing Custom Tasks
      • XML attributes are passed through as properties
      • Properties can be marked <Required()>
      • Properties can be marked <Output()>
      • Most intrinsic types are supported
      • Arrays of these types are also supported, delimited using ; in XML
      • Use <UsingTask> to reference your custom task
    • Writing Custom Tasks
      • Demo
