Feature spotlight: Windows builds

Feature spotlight: Windows builds

Until now Buddy only supported Linux workers. Building .NET applications was only possible through Mono, an open-source implementation of Microsoft's .NET framework. However, this solution, although the only one possible on this type of architecture (excluding .NET Core), was far from perfect, as the build environment was still emulated and not native.

And so it happened: last week we added support for Windows workers (Windows Data Center)! We are super excited about it as it opens Buddy for a completely new ecosystem of developers. It also adds new challenges for our team – as always we are looking forward to you helping us fine-tune the feature so that it meets the high standards of Microsoft developers.
