Blogs, Articles and FAQs

Omphalos - Our technical blog.
Joel On Software - Blog site for the founder of Fogcreek Software. The articles and the associated discussion groups have gone severely down hill in the last few years but mine the archives. There are a number of useful, extremely well written articles in there.
The Old New Thing - Raymond Chen's blog about Windows development from the insider's point of view. You may think that because you are a .Net programmer you don't need to know anything about C++ and Win32 development but you would be wrong.


Other Links

Stack Overflow - Currently the best Q & A forum for .Net developers.
MSDN Forums - The official Microsoft Q & A forums, decent quality but signal to noise ratio is far too low. The clunky, slow UI doesn't help.
Code Project - The original and best MS-centric development article and code sample site. Jam packed with useless dross but a phenomenal number of gems in there as well.
