Scott Hanselman: Developer Productivity Tools Video Part 1
When I was at TechEd I visited the Beantown.net INETA User Group and gave a (fairly ad-hoc) talk on Developer Productivity Tools. Jim Minatel loaned me his microphone and a copy of Camtasia and we recorded the talk. Thanks Jim!
It was a great crowd, a lot of fun. We had a number of "off the cuff" discussions about random stuff so I hope it doesn't take away from the gist of the talk.
The complete presentation was around 1 hour 45 minutes, so for online, Jim has split it into 4 segments. This week's segment is available now and is about 33 minutes long. If you watch it in your browser, I recommend you double click on Windows Media Player to make the video go full screen.
- 00:00 Title
- 00:15 Scott's introduction
- 00:40 The first tool: Notepad 2

- 09:55 Process Explorer and Slick Run
- 15:15 ILDASM
- 16:15 .NET Reflector

The remaining three segments for following weeks will cover roughly:
- Week 2: XmlSerializer - 20 minutes
- Week 3: Windows PowerShell - 33 minutes
- Week 4: Active Words, Code Rush, SOAP Scope, XML doc viewer - 23 minutes
There's also some other good screencasts up at Wrox. The growing list of videos is available at wrox.com. The first few videos in the series are:
