So you've got this great new idea and you want to write some software to express yourself! But first, there's a whole bunch of engineering infrastructure that you would typically have to set up.
And once you have these, you can write some code!
Now, if you're like me, you want all these things given to you in some form, so that you can focus on just writing the code. This is what ProjectScaffold gives you!
I was able to put up a couple of projects using these instructions. I did run into some gotchas the first time - mostly because I didn't fully understand what was going on. The second project was a migration of code from codeplex, and it was much faster.
I'm writing this post series for people who have little exposure to all the tools and technologies used, so some of it may border on the bleeding obvious - but that's a good thing, in my opinion, because I'm not assuming that everyone knows what I do! :)
