Be More Productive: Code Snippets in Visual Studio

Be More Productive: Code Snippets in Visual Studio

Want to be more productive as a developer? There’s some cool stuff you can do with code snippets in Visual Studio. Brian Noyes has a good overview on here, including some things I’m embarrassed to admit that I did not know.

If you’re interested in productivity, you might also be interested in the Visual Studio ASPX Edit Helper, a little tool a whipped up one afternoon and have never updated. :)  (Hey, the source code is there for download if you want to beef it up).

SourceForge Top 25 Favours Windows

SourceForge Top 25 Favours Windows

This is interesting though not totally surprising:

[O]pen source software is not only available but also more popular on Windows. Note that of the top 25, there were 16 projects available only for Windows and none that were available only for Linux.

This definitely matches my anecdotal experience. I have rarely looked for something on SourceForge that wasn’t available for Windows.
