Build Times?

Let’s be honest (its anonymous anyways) for .NET DEVELOPERS ONLY! Think about your normal build as you work (not a production build etc)

    What do you mean by build?

    1) Build of the solution (ctrl-shift-b). Ours takes 2m45s. I never do this
    2) Build the project you’re interested in + any dependencies. Ours takes 5 to 15 seconds

    Neither of these run any unit tests.

    For comparison, our CI build which runs unit and integration tests takes 15 minutes.

      ctrl+shift+b would be the best measure but it varies heavily depending what you are building (incremental builds)

    Full build takes slightly more than a minute. During normal development incremental one varies from 5s to ~45s (same as full, but without unit-test projects), so I picked <30s variant as somewhat in between.

    When running tests that are integration test with the platform we develop on, no way to escape the penalty of waiting :(
