The Discussion

    The session was really good but I couldn't see much details about how to package the WebAPI into a Chocolatey package and publish it to a Nuget repo. I read about how to create a package manually on the but I didn't see anything about how we can create a choco package from a MVC project using VSTS.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Ramon, thanks for your comment.  I used WiX to create the MSI.  Please contact me offline for details.
