One of my biggest obstacles to development is that whenever I want to deploy a change I have to run a series of powershell scripts to destroy the site, retract the solution, install the solution and create the site. With the current small to medium size
of my project they take about 6 to 8 minutes to run, that's a lot of downtime/time when i'm not coding during a day!
I'd be keen to hear about how anyone else builds, we've used VS2010 deployment in the past but we occasionally ran into strange issues, so hence the powershell - i think VS largely does the same thing anyway?
My second question is can i parallelise any of these tasks? For instance, should it be safe to destroy the site and retract the solution at the same time rather than one after the other?
