In this podcast, Peter Mounce talks about using Ruby rake to aid with automating .NET software builds – stating that a build script should use a scripting language, because XML hurts too much. Peter walked through the basics of what rake allows one to do; tasks, file-tasks, and dependencies. He demonstrates a build script leveraging the rake-dotnet gem and convention over configuration, where tasks do the heavy lifting so you don’t have to.
