I don’t know about you, but I never really liked Visual Source Safe. Don’t get me wrong I love Microsoft products, but somehow I do not think VSS cuts the mustard.
Subversion is a much more light-weight, open-source, disconnected source control system that works and plays really well with Visual Studio 2008 and .NET.
In the coming days I will try to give a comprehensive guide in setting up Subversion, automated builds and integrating it with Visual Studio 2008.
The articles are to be organised as follows:
- Subversion & Visual Studio 2008
- CruiseControl.NET – Automated Builds
- Visual Studio 2008 Subversion Integration
- Other CruiseControl.NET Integration Stuff (FxCop etc.)
I hope you find this interesting. I think it is really good stuff and an excellent development environment. But let me know what you think before I start writing!
