That's It

As you can see from the video above, it's incredibly easy to use the Nettuts+ build script. Just install Phing, download the build directory, and run phing from the command line! Even better, if you're a PHP developer, you can extend Phing quite easily. Be sure to refer to our Premium course if that intrigues you.

If you notice any bugs, let me know in the comments, and I'll get those fixed ASAP!
