Using Nuke and C# to automate your build pipeline

I've had a lot of prior build automation experience with the XML hell of MSBuild, the PowerShell sizzle of PSake and the "feels like C# but doesn't quite act like it is" Cake approach, both in my open-source projects as well as in professional projects. But nothing has made it such a sweet and smooth experience as Nuke did. The idea of using C# and .NET Core for build scripts that Cake introduced was a great idea, but because it didn't adopt C#/.NET fully, it became a painful exercise of plain text editing. I've been using Nuke for a while and it solved all of those concerns in a very well designed way. To show you why I think this is true, let me show you why Nuke is such a blessing for those that treat their build scripts as first class citizens of their code base.
