Windows Services are a method by which we can deploy code and have it running in the background without needing to manually log-in and start console applications, for example. We can write Windows Services in .NET but developing, testing, debugging, and installing Windows Services can be tricky. Topshelf is an open source library that greatly reduces the friction of developing, testing, and installing Windows Services.
