Extensions are an add-on to Visual Studio 2010 that improves the user experience. Your extension could provide additional functionality to the product, or add a level of customization to better serve an individual or company's needs.
We have a number of resources to help you learn more about Visual Studio and extension development, including the following videos:
- VSX101: An Introduction to Visual Studio 2010 Extensibility
- VSX102: Deploying Visual Studio 2010 Extensions
- VSX103: Lighting up the new Visual Studio 2010 Editor with Rich Extensions
You also can download a trial version of Visual Studio and learn more about extensions on the Microsoft Visual Studio site.
We'll be featuring some of the most compelling extensions here at ReadWriteWeb - plus you could win prizes like a one-year MSDN Embedded subscription license (a $1,199 USD value!), an Xbox Elite bundle, or a Natural Wireless Ergonomic Desktop 700 keyboard and mouse.
Beyond submitting extensions, we also are looking for our development community to check out and comment on their peers' submissions. You can keep track of the submissions and submit your entry by visiting the Summer of Extensions page.
