You can visit my website at: I blog about MSBuild and Visual Studio mostly, but other things as well.


  • IE9 HTML5 Demo

    This comparison isn't exactly fair. IE9 is pre-release where as Firefox and Chrome are not. The correct comparision would include IE8.

  • Toolshed Tooltip #13 - MSBuild talks to Twitter from Episode 2


    First you should download the samples and build the sample solution (Sedo.MSBuild.TwitterLogger.sln). When you build it dll Sedo.MSBuild.Loggers.dll should be created. Then here is a sample command to attach the logger to the build for your project.


    msbuild WindowsFormsApplication1.csproj /l:TwitterLogger,C:\temp\Sedo.MSBuild.TwitterLogger\Sedo.MSBuild.TwitterLogger\bin\Debug\Sedo.MSBuild.Loggers.dll;Username=YOUR_USER_NAME;Password=YOUR_PASSWORD


    Note these things about that command

    • WindowsFormsApplication1.csproj
      This is the name of the project being built. Since it is in the same folder path was left off
    • C:\temp\Sedo.MSBuild.TwitterLogger\Sedo.MSBuild.TwitterLogger\bin\Debug\
      This is the path to the folder which contains the assembly just built (Sedo.MSBuild.Loggers.dll)
    • Fill in YOUR_USERNAME
    • Fill in YOUR_PASSWORD
