The Microsoft build engine (MSBuild) is not necessarily the easiest to learn, and documentation and examples can be difficult to find.

There is however an excellent book written by Sayed Ibrahim Hashimi and William Bartholomew titled “Inside the Microsoft Build Engine: Using MSBuild and Team Foundation Build” (Microsoft Press, 2009, ISBN-13: 978-0-7356-2628-7). I very strongly recommend purchasing this book if you are serious about learning MSBuild.

In this series of lessons I will be discussing a few MSBuild related tips that I found useful to understand during my recent dabbling in MSBuild 3.5 projects.

Please leave below any comments, feedback or suggestions, or alternatively contact me on a social network.
