New CodeRush Screencasts

If you've though about using CodeRush, or you've tried it and given up because it seems to complex, take a look at the new Screencasts that have been added to the CodeRush Training/Tutorial site. The Cool Templates screencast shows the basics of CodeRush, while the NUnit-specific one shows off how CodeRush can augment testing. One of the best, but least understood features is the Smart Clipboard that will dramatically change the number of arrow keys and shift-arrowing that you need to do. There's 900+ templates in CodeRush and it can be a little daunting unless you grok it.

Yes, I have tried CodeRush and yes I have given it up because it seems too complex and yes, you do sound like you're shilling for them. There are other excellent refactor-enabled addins available for VS without the distracting and superficial eye-candy. Hello, Resharper and about 5 others that I can think of off the top of my head. And Resharper will helpfully find and insert missing references as using statements at the top of the file. You have excellent posts, but please lay off the shilling for CodeRush as it isn't THAT impressive, and there isn't a deluge of user-written plugins for it.
