VSTricks Introduction

VSTricks.com is alive (as of today) in part of a community new years (2009) resolution.

Today is January 1st, 2009, and I’m hearing everyone talking about resolutions. Working out, eating right, stop smoking, this and that, blah, blah, blah. Good. More power to you. If New Years is the lame excuse you need to get motivated (oh wait …. that’s me) then get a move on it, because before you know it, it’ll be 2010 and you’ll be looking back at another year in the review mirror wondering where it went, and what you accomplished.

I have always been a fan of the work Sara Ford has done on Visual Studio Tips of the Day. At TechEd2008, I talked to Sara about adding a video blog to just repeats her already done hard work. She gave the me high five and said "Go for it". Time slid by, weeks turn into months, and I didn’t do anything on the idea. It remained just an idea. But then, Sara recently announced she was done writing tips. A sad day for many that looked forward to the tips; and a renewed motivation for me to pick up on the ideas talked about with Sara in 2008.

So here it is; My 2009 Community New Years resolution.

Replay Sara’s Tip of the Day posts (starting with #1) with a video feed, explaining and showing the tip. Once these tips have been enhanced with Video, I hope to continue to work with the Visual Studio team to come up with additional tips and tricks.

Simple Goal. Add video to all 382 tips. That averages more than 1 a day, so I hope to do them in groups, and have them all done/posted and ready before the end of the year.

Wish me luck!
