    🏗 The AKEless Build System for C#/.NET (by nuke-build)

    It was at that point I started searching for an alternative. I quickly ran into another build automation system that I’d heard of before, but never really used: NUKE. Dennis Doomen (also known as ‘the guy who wrote FluentAssertions’) had written a very nice article outlining why he thought it was a great replacement. He outlines more reasons, but NUKE specifically addresses all of the issues I was having with Cake.

  • Cake

    :cake: Cake (C# Make) is a cross platform build automation system.

    For those not familiar with it, Cake is a build automation system with a C#-based DSL. It is based on the concept of tasks, which are small units of work, like restoring packages, building, or testing, which can have dependencies on, or trigger, other tasks.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
