Moving to SharpDevelop from Visual Studio Express

2007-07-09

    In light of the recent controversy of using plugins in Visual Studio Express and getting some inspiration after listening to the DotNetRocks episode with Christopher Wille on SharpDevelop I thought I should give SharpDevlop a chance again. I am working on two utilities that I plan to release as shareware and as I do not want to rely on tools supplied by my employer I have been using Visual Studio Express until now. I haven’t done any real work in #Develop yet, but I’ve got both projects up and running.

    The first thing that bit me was the lack of a typed dataset designer. I was on the way to move that structure into a List anyway so it doesn’t bother me that much right now. I’ll write about the progress of each project this week.
