Best of SharePoint 2010 VSIX

The more I learn about Visual Studio 2010 the more I like it. For SharePoint developers, it is great to finally have a mature toolset. To make that experience even better the community has created several VSIX extensions as a “quick start” to more easily jump into various project types. Below I outline links to the VSIX extensions I am aware of and run locally. If you have any questions or suggestions please leave a comment.  Cheers!   Smile
