Power Tools

Jeffrey Palermo is doing a series on producing software quickly. In part 3, he describes the importance of good programmer tools. It's all good stuff, but what is of most interest to me is his list of software tools that are applicable to the C# developer.

Scott Hanselman also has a very comprehensive list of tools. Categories in his list include:

  • The Big Ten Life and Work-Changing Utilities
  • Dropped out of the Top 10 for 2006 but still rockin' sweet
  • A Developer's Life
  • COM is Dead
  • The Angle Bracket Tax (XML/HTML Stuff)
  • Regular Expressions
  • Launchers
  • Stuff I Just Dig
  • Low-Level Utilities
  • Websites and Bookmarklets (that change the way you work)
  • Tools for Bloggers
  • Smart People and their Pages for Utils They Wrote
  • Alt.lang
  • Browser Add-Ins
  • Things Windows Forgot
  • Outlook AddIns and Life Organizers
  • Ultimate Registry Tweaks
  • Windows Explorer Integration (and other Integraty things)
  • Continuous Integration
  • TabletPC Indispensibles
  • ASP.NET Must Haves
  • Visual Studio.NET Add-Ins
