My pick of the day is .NET Rocks episode 896, Automating Deployment with Papadimoulis and Kuemerle.

Joe Kuemerle and Alex Papadimoulis talks about automating deployment as the path to a DevOps world. This was actually the first time I heard the expression DevOps. It’s about bringing developers and operations folks closer together. Every developer probably have had a run in with operations and it’s often not very fun so striving to working closer together is a good thing. A key part is to automate as much as possible.

They mention BuildMaster which is a platform to make this easier and it’s free for up to five users. Try it out, I know I will.
