teamcity-digestPlease welcome the latest digest of new publications about TeamCity usage and different aspects of CI/CD processes that it covers.

We’ll start this one with the post by Paul Stovell in the official Octopus Deploy blog about how some of the new major changes in ASP.NET Core 1 and the dotnet CLI have impacted build and deployment pipelines for developers: ASP.NET Core 1 build & deployment pipelines with TeamCity and Octopus.

This post helps understand how to automate your .NET website deployment and relieve some of the stress induced by manual deployment. The toolset of the author is quite standard for the task: Visual Studio, TeamCity, and Octopus Deploy: How to level up your .NET website deployment process.

If you are a .NET developer who likes to obfuscate code and wants to automate the job, here is an example of how it can be done with the help of TeamCity: Using Dotfuscator to obfuscate code within TeamCity.

If you have published an article, a blog post, a video or some other form of content on the subject of using TeamCity, or know someone who did, we’ll  appreciate if you make sure it reaches our attention: such content will be promoted to a broader audience of TeamCity users.
