Scott Hanselman is a well-known .NET and ASP.NET expert, with one of the most popular .NET blogs, his Computer Zen blog. Within that blog, one of the most popular and asked about content areas is his Ultimate Tools list, a list of the tools he finds immensely useful in his work as a developer. Based on the popularity of this list, he recently gave a presentation on developer productivity tools at the Beantown.net user group. This video is the first in a series of videos we've captured from that hour and 45 minute presentation at Beantown.net. In this first segment of the presentation, he talks about the first few tools and also discussed how understanding these productivity tools can go hand in hand with a better understanding of .NET itself.
