Do you avoid publishing from Visual Studio?

Last updated by TiagoAraujo over 4 years ago.See history

Publishing from Visual Studio is a convenient way to deploy a web application, but it relies on a single developer’s machine which can lead to problems. Deploying to production should be easily repeatable, and able to be performed from different machines.

A better way to deploy is by using a defined Build in TFS.
