To keep things simple on a Windows machine I try to compile to single binaries and deploy to one directory seperated by subfolders

Directory: c:\MyPrograms


I love Jetbrains products and since I’m only locally deploying to my machine, I have build configurations to build and copy these binaries. I want things to be simple and easy. Here are some examples for .NET and GoLang:


If I need to run something ad-hoc, of course I can cd to their respective directories and invoke them. I typically have a http api though that needs to be running on startup. I use shortcuts in the Windows startup folder to accompish this:

  1. ctrl + r
  2. shell:startup
  3. Right click, new, shortcut
  4. Choose the exe to run
