Automating the build all the way to the customers.

Paul Stovell, who has been building an awesome application called TrialBalance that uses WPF has taken it one step further and connected the build system at Readify up to the page which distributes the builds to the public.

This is a classic example of how TFS can be extended into your development processes using its extensibility model. In this case Paul used MSBuild extensibility. Actually – we are currently working on another tool that will be suitable for staged deployments in enterprise environments which integrates TFS with PowerShell. Once again Chris Burrows has been a driving force in its implementation along with Geoff who did some early work around building prototypes which demonstrated how to host the PowerShell runtime.

I hope that we will have something that we can release to the public in the near future. This is another example of a tool that is going to save us time internally.
