  • Hi Daniel,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    The Microsoft Build Engine (MSBuild) is a platform for building applications. By invoking msbuild.exe on your project or solution file, you can orchestrate and build products in environments where Visual Studio isn’t installed. MSBuild is now open source, and it is going cross-platform. You could free to use it, but there is no official document to indicate that it could be used in an Environment with more than 10 developers.

    For more, please refer to here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2015/09/03/msbuild-is-going-cross-platform-with-net-core/

    Best regards,

  • Hi Daniel,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    I have asked some professional people in the field, generally, there is no effect on usage in an Environment with more than 10 developers.
