# dotnet

Hi, is there a specific reason that dotnet compiles before "pulumi up"? When using pulumi in Azure Devops or similar I would like it to compile during build-step, and then I run "pulumi up" during release-step and I expect it to use the already compiles dll:s then... but that is not possible right now? Or am i missing something? Seems odd to package source-code from the build-step as an artifact...

As to why - we were mainly driven with the getting started experience, your ask definitely makes sense for CI integrations.
