Dot Net development tools?
February 8, 2013 9:16 AM Subscribe
Any suggestions for good Dot Net development tools? I'm interested in suggestions for a wide range of tool types, for example (but not limited to) unit testing, code coverage, style enforcement, bug finders, profiling, code/API documentation generation, installer/distributable packagers, continuous integration, build systems, report generators, static code analysis, decompilers, IDE enhancements, etc., etc.

Free or cheap is preferred, but not essential.
I'll be doing both backend stuff and GUI stuff, mostly for the desktop environment but probably with a little bit of web server stuff too.
I'll be using Visual Studio 2012 Professional, and targeting version 4.0 of the Framework. Likely almost exclusively using C#, maybe with a little bit of C++ and maybe a tiny sprinkling of ASP (or whatever the modern Dot Net ASP-like thing is).
I am (I believe) a competent programmer with experience in a wide range of languages, development environments, etc., but I'm pretty new to Dot Net. I was expecting to get into it a few years back, and looked into it for a little while, but then moved on to other things before getting very far. So I do know a little about it, but not a lot, and I imagine that what I do know is now out of date. It's now once again looking like I'm going to be getting into it, though.
