Hi, everyone!

I'm curious, is it really necessary - to build all that projects of Orchard solution every time, when I changed something in my module?
I've created a copy of solution file, removed Tests, Specs and deprecated modules from it. Now it has 68 projects instead 78, and it builds a little bit faster. And I'm thinking, are all of modules within Modules folder really needed for build one particular module?

You can remove the modules in the copy of your solution file as most of them won't be necessary unless you reference them in your theme or custom module. You just need to build the first time.

You don't need to build your changes. Orchard should do this for you. Only refresh the page should do it.
