Automating All the Things with FinalBuilder
Readable, Maintainable Automation Scripts with FinalBuilder on Windows
You might be using many different tools to get day to day automation working. Powershell, MSBuild, batch files, scheduled tasks. It's all scattered out there, and there might be only a handful of people who know where everything is. maybe it's just you.
In this course we take a look at a way to make things more readable, and more maintainable, while also more approachable to teach to other people.
Also, we learn how to avoid reinventing the wheel by using a tool that I've been using for the past decade called "FinalBuilder". I'm just a happy customer, but i have found it invaluable in windows based automation projects I have done.
From building huge solutions, to merging databases and doing very complicated deployments of applications and configurations, this tool was there for me.
I want to share my experience with it, and teach you how to be truly effective with it, so you won't have to learn things the hard way.
