Jacksonville's Developer User Group Meets June 3, 2009

First Wednesday of the month, you will catch me at our monthly JaxDUG meeting. Below are the details so drop by!

Leveraging Web Deployment Projects

In this session we will take a look at how Web Deployment Projects can be used to assist in the deployment of web sites and web applications; including ASP.NET Web Applications and ASP.NET MVC Web Applications. We will give an overview of what Web Deployment Projects are and the functionality that is available out of the box. A Web Deployment Project is a wrapper for the aspnet_compiler.exe tool in the form of an MSBuild project and adds value to using the tool itself. Because they are MSBuild files we are able to customize and extend the process. We will discuss how we can customize the process to perform common steps such as

  1. Creating Virtual Directories
  2. Updating values in the web.config file
  3. Encrypting the web.config file
  4. Minimizing JavaScript files
  5. Versioning the Assemblies


Bank Of America, Building 500

Room: Sea Oats, 6pm-8pm
