From Zero to Automated Build in a matter of moments, not days!

Pizza and networking time

How you build your code and verify quality is something that is usually not thought of at the beginning of a project, but is one of the most important things you can add to code.

UppercuT (UC) is a build framework (based in NAnt) that allows rapid and powerful use of NAnt without having to understand the intricacies of NAnt.

We are basically going to dive right in after a few minutes of talking about it and start building applications quickly. Our focus will be to show you most if not all of the features to show you how UC can actually save you in code and maintenance time. Then you will see how fast you can go from F5 to automated builds!
