Shiny new thing to eat up bandwidth!
I’m a solo developer in a corporate environment, so I’m really on my own to learn new things. As good as blogs and books are, there’s sometimes no substitute for being shown how. That’s why Microsoft highlights so many videos on its asp.net site. ASP Alliance also has a growing library of videos.
Enter onto this list one more site–DotNetVideos.net. Right now there are around 100 videos on a great number of topics. Apparently there are a couple hundred more in the pipeline. And, if you sign up now, you get 6 months of ASP.NET Pro magazine for free. That alone is worth the sign-up. ASP.NET Pro is one of my favorite trade mags (I have an online subscription, and have for several years).
When you’re Googling for info on whatever you’re working on, don’t forget to check out this site, too, and see if someone is showing you how it’s done.
Full disclosure: I was asked to say something about the new site, and I usually ignore such requests. But after checking it it, it’s one I’ll be spending some time on, and recommending to others.
