[Video] Accelerating Continuous Delivery by Improving NuGet Package Management

January 26, 2015 By Derek Weeks

Recently at Microsoft’s TechEd in Europe, Marcel de Vries, Visual Studio ALM MVP and CTO Xpirit, wowed the audience when presenting a talk on how to accelerate continuous delivery by improving NuGet component management.

Nuget Component ManagementUse of repository managers in continuous delivery environments are shown to reduce build times 20-fold as compared to relying on public open source repositories like the NuGet Gallery. By relying on a local caching proxy for the NuGet Gallery and hosting your own proprietary NuGet packages locally, you can dramatically improve build speeds and reliability.

Marcel showed how a repository manager that integrates with NuGet helps .NET developers manage component versions, dependencies and license types using proxy facilities to ensure a continuous flow of development and faster cycle times.
