VSDotNet Links


Namespace: DotNet
Here are a list of Visual Studio Net links for your information. The original list was posted by Robert Scoble in the MS newsgroups.

These are all the resources I know about so far for Microsoft's Visual Studio.net family of technologies (includes ASP+, VB.net, VS.net, VC++.net, C#, SOAP, Web Services, etc.).

These include ALL the links I've seen bandied around so far, not just Dev X / Fawcette ones.

I can't say it's comprehensive (I get a new resource every hour or so) but it's a good starting point. It'd be good to build a Visual Studio.net portal with all of these links, methinks.

Hope they are useful to you.

Links not yet classified
