Recently, a co-worker pinged me asking about the best way to handle transforms in a Sitecore 9+ PaaS environment. My response: "Transforms are the devil, and there are often zero reasons why you need them in a new Sitecore environment." Sitecore, of course, gives us rules-based configurations out of the box, which give us a lot of control over applying different configurations for different roles and environments, but what about modifications to the web.config? In my experience, most changes to the web.config are "one-time" changes that you can make (and document) as soon as an environment is provisioned. This includes managing assembly binding redirects, which is often something that changes each time you add a new NuGet reference to your project. Read on to learn how you can externalize your assembly binding redirects, instead of having to maintain a copy of the web.config file and/or transforms.

For some time now, I've wanted to eliminate gulp from the build and deploy workflow of Helix based solutions. The use of Node, NPM, and Gulp has never set well with me. Surely there has to be a way to achieve the same results with more Visual Studio native technologies.
When it came time to setup automated deployments with Octopus Deploy, at the time, I didn’t find much in the way of how others were configuring Octopus with Helix based solutions. I hope this post, and the previous post on automated builds (Part 1), can be a road map for you or provide a starting point for your CI setup journey.
