“Suggested Resources” Visual Studio Plug-In

Today’s post is a quick plug for a new tool developed by my friend Olaf Conijn, who (amongst other things) has been a developer on several versions of Enterprise Library. His new tool is called Suggested Resources for .NET Developers, and the current 0.8 release works with both Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010.

So what does it do? Well here’s what Olaf has to say:

This Visual Studio Integration Package is a proof of concept in:

  • Aggregation of online content within the Visual Studio IDE.
  • Analysis of development activities within the Visual Studio IDE.

This combination of features allows Suggested Resources for .NET developers to pro-actively suggest online content that applies on the task being performed by a developer... A bit like having a programming pair that searches for online resources while you focus on getting the job done.
