“From Zero to Professional Build in a matter of moments, not days!”

How you build your code and verify quality is something that is
usually not thought of at the beginning of a project, but is one of
the most important things you can add to code. UppercuT (UC) is a
build framework (based in NAnt) that allows rapid and powerful use of
NAnt without having to understand the intricacies of NAnt. We are
basically going to dive right in after a couple of minutes of talking
about it and start building applications quickly. Our focus will be to
show you most if not all of the features to show you how UC can
actually save you in code and maintenance time.

Rob Reynolds has been programming in .NET since the early days of 1.0.
In his day job he is a senior developer at a bank where the doors are
always locked and there's no money inside! Rob is an MCSD for .NET,
holds a bachelor's degree in MIS from Kansas State University, is
active in the Topeka .Net User Group, a regional INETA speaker, an
eagle scout, and a veteran officer of the US Army Reserve. Rob enjoys
spending time with his wife and kids when his wife hasn’t locked him
in the basement to work on any of the OSS projects he manages.
