Home > SSW Standards > Developer General > SSW Introduction to The Best 3rd Party Tools
It was a pleasure to have you in the office again. I continue to be impressed by the quality of work and advice you provide.

Microsoft tools are the most important tools I have. I spend most of my time using Outlook, Visual Studio.NET, and SQL Server Management Studio. However Microsoft tools don't do everything. Rather than spending my time recreating the
wheel, I am always on the look out for non-Microsoft options or extensions that will save me time. After all, a spanner might get a
plumber through 90% of jobs, but he'll get stuck on the last 10% if he doesn't carry anything else. I carry these tools in my Tool
Box every day. I hope you find them useful.
Note: I have included a few of SSW's utilities - but not for the purpose of plugging them. Originally
this was an internal document for our new developers to make them know the non Microsoft software
we recommended they use. I was going to remove but I think they add value....
Do you agree with them all? Are we missing some?
Let Adam know what you think.
Am I missing any tools on this list?
I only know what I know. I love the opportunity to review great products and speak about them at developer conferences and user groups. Feel free to email Adam any ones I have missed.
