  • GitVersion

    From git log to SemVer in no time

    I know that GitVersion exists, which I think can automatically calculate the version number for me. But it's not entirely clear to me that it will do this. Also it doesn't seem to have a nbgv set-version equivalent that will just create a tag based on the calculated version number.

  • 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.
