Sebastopol, CA—Drill into MSBuild—and maximize your control over the software build and deployment process. Inside the Microsoft® Build Engine, Second Edition (Microsoft Press, $59.99 USD) has been fully updated for MSBuild 4, Microsoft .NET Framework 4, and Visual Studio 2010, including support for Visual C++®. Gain the critical insights and examples you need to customize and extend build processes with MSBuild. And learn how to scale them to the team, product, or enterprise level with Team Foundation Build."The importance of the build process has increased significantly in the last few years due to the complexity of software that is being written today," says coauthor Sayed Hashimi (@SayedIHashimi). "For any project that consists of just a few developers, having a proper build process is very important."

- Master core techniques for creating MSBuild project files
