Recently I posted a list of the Best C# Blogs. Today we recognize the best C# Web sites.
Following (in alphabetical order) are the best C# sites active on the Web today. Also included is the “About” section of the site (edited for space and clarity). Please comment if you can recommend other excellent C# web sites that didn’t make my list.
Blocks4.NET is a .NET community site for those who buy and sell .NET products and components.
C# Corner was formed and maintained by professionals, who strongly believe in sharing their piece of code with other developers. It is a free source site for C# and .NET developers. C# and .NET developers can meet and exchange their ideas, code and expertise on the site through discussion forums or submissions.
The site doesn’t even have an “About” section, so I’ll let the content speak for itself: 55,000+ forum postings, 700+ technical articles, and 62,000+ active subscribers.
Lessons with step-by-step instructions and a patient detail-oriented approach, accentuated by various useful examples in every section. To make it easy to learn effectively, the lessons are organized in topics so you can jump to the particular part you are interested in.
CodePlex is Microsoft’s open source project hosting web site. You can use CodePlex to create new projects to share with the world, join others who have already started their own projects, or use the applications on the site and provide feedback.
The Code Project was formed to provide developers with a place to meet and exchange ideas. We provide developers with all the resources they need to help them in their day-to-day programming, as well as helping them keep current with the latest technologies.
