Resources

Here's a growing list of resources that contain useful information. Please send me any to add.


Where to find Answers:

Because when you search the internet, you will get all kinds of answers. Which ones should you click first?

StackOverFlow/StackExchange
http://stackoverflow.com/
Community driven and generally high quality, but you generally won't get real in-depth answers unless someone links to some. Sometimes you have to weed through a bunch of responses, but the rating system helps point the way. Check here first.

MSDN
Microsoft Developer Network
