Webinar – NUKE – Designing a build system with IDE support in mind

Join us Tuesday, April 21, 2020, 16:00 – 17:00 CEST (10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT or check other timezones) for our free live webinar, NUKE – Designing a build system with IDE support in mind, with Matthias Koch.

Register now!

There are quite a number of build systems for the .NET ecosystem. All of them have proven to improve lives of many developers working in build infrastructure. However, many of them follow a scripting approach, which inevitably requires lots of efforts to bring back common IDE features like code completion, refactorings, or debugging. NUKE is different in that it doesn’t step out of boundaries of conventional frameworks, and thus leaving all the essential tooling intact.

In this talk, we will provide a short introduction to build automation, how NUKE works, and look at some of the design decisions along the way of building it. We will also briefly discuss extension points in Rider that allowed the delivery of an even more integrated experience, for instance by adding custom run configurations, executing targets via Alt-Enter, viewing a live graph of target dependencies, and more ideas yet to implement.

Join this presentation if you’re interested in build automation, enhancing frameworks with more IDE integration, or just if you’re a fan of Rider, ReSharper (or TeamCity)!
