Natasa Gavrilovic my Explorations in Coding
If you still didn’t explore Extension Manager under Tools in Visual Studio 2010 now it’s the time!
VS2010 can be expended to include add-ons you wish to have. The Extension Manager list is pretty extensive, where most of them are ‘still work in progress’ tools but, at least, it is worth trying.
Listed below are top ranked ones that should help to enhance your coding experience:
·         Productivity Power Tools – set of small gadgets: Auto Brace Completion, Quick Access, Column Guides, Align Assignments, Triple Click etc.
·         PowerCommands 
·         Visual Studio Web Standards Update –newly released update for support HTML5 and CSS3
·         MVC Scaffolding - scaffold elements from entities
·         NuGet Package Manager – automated package manager tool
Online the Extension manager is locaated ats Visual Studio Gallery.
Another good place is CodePlex. It is open source software website focusing on .NET that contains more than 20 000 add-ons tagged in more than 20 different categories.
Feel free to add a comment how your VS is ‘customized’ and what will be your recommendation.
