Team Build 2010 Talk at NW-MTUG

Tonight I’ll be giving a talk on Team Foundation Build for NW-MTUG at the University of Ulster’s Magee Campus.  The event starts at 6.30pm – if you are around it would be great to see you there.  I’ll be giving away a copy of my book to one lucky person prepared to sit through the whole talk :-)

Session Summary:

In this session Martin takes us on a tour of the build automation features provided by Team Foundation Server 2010.  First we will discuss the basics of build automation and why it is the second most important thing you can do to improve software quality in your organization.  Then we will highlight the new features in the 2010 release and how to use them to automate the building of your applications.  Finally we will do a deep dive into customizing the build process and discuss the build experience against Team Foundation Server 2010 from Visual Studio 2008 and earlier.

Location: MS Block, University of Ulster’s Magee Campus at 6.30pm.

UPDATE: Slides from the talk below as promised, or you can download them direct (PPTX 2.8MB)


If you were not able to come along then you can download a free mini-book from the Wrox site which contains my Team Build chapter along with an excellent chapter on Manual Testing by my good buddy Brian Keller.  Or you could always buy a copy of the book of course (from, and all good bookstores in dead tree and electronic versions)
