MSBuild is a Microsoft build platform typically used in conjunction with Visual Studio. MSBuild acts on MSBuild project files which have a similar XML syntax to Apache Ant or NAnt. Even though the syntax is based upon well-defined XML schema, the fundamental structure and operation is comparable to the traditional Unix make utility: the user specifies what will be used (typically source code files) and what the result should be (typically an application), but the utility itself decides what to do and the order in which to do it. Learn the essentials of working with MSBuild to enhance your projects.
