Overview of MSBuild

Mitch Denny - The Road To MSBuild

Mitch gives a good overview of what MSBuild is:

MSBuild, like NAnt is an application of XML and has .NET extensibility points, but despite the crys of “ripoff” the MSBuild team has done something interesting here – instead of making just another XML scripting language, they’ve built a transform engine – they’ve gone back to their “makefile” roots (take that you proceduralists!).

This is a great read if you don't know anything about MSBuild. It certainly brought me up to speed pretty quick.
