Yup! You read that correctly. I have published 18 videos, one per day, over an 18 day period on Channel9. I have created clips from the TV Show It’s All About The Tools from Episode 1 , Episode 2 and Episode 3 along with  co-host of the TV show, Microsoft MVP, Stan Schultes.

I have done this for a few reasons. Many developers do not have an available hour to listen to the entire episode. Each clip is about ten minutes. Some may just want to know about one of the tools, so it is more discoverable when searching. It’s the same great content, just sliced up a little differently into Russ’ Tool Shed Tooltips. 

Visit  http://channel9.msdn.com/toolshed every week for content to come which includes:  Live ID Services, IE 8 Dev Tools and SSIS Data Profiling!

Sample code, ppt and demo scripts are at: http://code.msdn.com/toolshed and tool download links are at http://channel9.msdn.com/toolshed

Here are the first 18 Tool Shed Videos…
