Free tools for .NET developers

As a developer, I’m always looking for tools that make my life easier and improve my productivity. Last week I discovered this list(135784_.NET_Free_Dev_Tools-table v6_080111_0) with over 50 free tools.

It contains a some of the most popular and useful free software development tools available. The vast majority of the tools listed in the table are geared toward .NET development, but there are a few others thrown in for those who are doing cross-platform development.

50 tools are listed in nine categories that represent a cross-section of the types of tools most widely available:

  • Code-generation/editing/templates
  • Content management systems (CMSs)
  • Controls/Components
  • Data access and Object-Relational Mapping (ORM)
  • Documentation & Project Management
  • Performance Analysis/Management
  • Software Configuration Management/Version Control
  • Testing and Debugging
  • Visual Studio add-ins
