Recorded at the Atlanta Code Camp 2007. Reproduced herein by permission.


In this 69-minute screencast video recorded at the 2007 Atlanta Code Camp, Wrox Technical Editor Eric Engler discusses the benefits of extending Visual Studio 2005 with add-ins. In doing this, he illustrates the process with an example creating an add-in for 2-way SQL code generation: it reads an existing SQL Class and writes updates without the developer using it having to know how it works. Eric's code example for you to download and work with after watching the video is available at: http://www.ericengler.com/Presentations.aspx. Like all Code Camp presentations, it's long on code and hands-on work and short on PowerPoint!
