How We Do It: Building the Visual Studio Product Line (Beth Massi, Matt Gertz)
Ever wonder how we build Visual Studio and the .NET Framework? I mean literally. You know, the build process that spits out a product at the other end? Well I sure did and it’s not just hitting F5 people ;-).
In this interview I sit down with Matt Gertz, frequent VB blogger and also the guy in charge of the builds in Developer Division (he has a long title, but I forget what it is :-)). He explains how the build and test processes work on a team of two thousand people all on Team Foundation Server. I must say it’s pretty darn impressive. Many thanks to Matt for taking time out of his busy schedule to do this interview!
