[ANN] Chicago ALT.NET shows Rake and Albacore

I haven't mentioned our meetings here in a while but our group has been going strong and enthusiastic all this time.

Tomorrow, March 10th our topic will be build scripts for .Net projects using Rake and Albacore. I've been using Rake and a little bit of Albacore in my own projects and I'm ready to say that it will take a very serious event to make me go back to NAnt or MSBuild.

Introduction to Rake with Albacore.NET

6:00 pm
Pizza and networking time

6:30 pm

How would you to write your build scripts using a scripting language instead of XML? In this month's meeting we will see how the ease of programming in Ruby can be used to create a much more pleasant and extensible build script.

Rake isn't just for Rubyists or Alphageeks anymore. Albacore helps bring the power and expresiveness of the Ruby language to the world of .NET build automation. Using Rake it's never been easier to handle build automation, test execution, continuous integration and just about any task you need to automate for your build.

Michael D. Hall has been developing software on the Microsoft platform for over a decade. He's been an Alt.NETter for years and is really enjoying the exposure to different ideas and concepts beyond the safe confines of the .NET world. Currently he's a consultant working with Obtiva and has started a Cloud Developer's Group that meets monthly in McHenry county.
