Introduction Hello World Example, where does dll come from?

The introduction web cast deploys a helloworld.dll assembly into the GAC.  The dll is not in the project.  When I create a sample project myself, I have a bin folder with a helloworld.dll in it.  Where does it come from?  I have no idea where this comes from.

Originally, STSDEV would use MSBuild to build the project during the wizard to get the strong name of the resultant assembly based on the snk file.  The 1.4 version no longer needs to use MSBuild so the dll won't be created until you build the project in Visual Studio.
