On 21st April, members of the C-SAM development department attended the latest Aberdeen .Net Developers User Group talk. The talk on Cake (C# Make), a cross platform build automation system, was delivered by Gary Park who is an active contributor to this open source project.
Cake allows developers to write build scripts in C# negating the requirement to learn a new language in order to automate the building of a software application. The guest speaker spoke about the features of the framework before taking the attendees through a demo that added a build & orchestration script to perform the following tasks:
- compile a .Net application
- run unit tests
- perform static analysis
- package the application
At C-SAM we’re committed to continuous staff development and strive to keep abreast of new platform developments in the industry.
