CI with Jenkins, MSBuild, Nuget and Git part 2

In part 1 of this blog series we had a look at a very basic MSBuild script which enables us to compile our projects. For doing this I provided you guys with a simple batch file to make it even more simple to execute the build script. In this episode we will focus on cleaning the folders before building again and getting the Nuget packages using Nuget package restore. The latter I will explain further for you first. Nuget package restore can be enabled in Visual studio. A best practice is to enable this always, because then we won’t have to put all Nuget packages in source control. By enabling it, every team member will download the missing packages automatically when building his project in Visual Studio. However the build server won’t do this by default so we create a custom target in our build script to make this happen.
