Check out this great project from David Glick called Discover .NET.

"After what seems like an eternity in development, I am thrilled to announce the launch of Discover .NET. The site is an attempt to improve discoverability in the .NET ecosystem by collecting information on topics like projects, issues, blogs, groups, events, and resources.

I built this site for a few reasons, some community focused and others related to my own interests like static sites:

  • Make it easier to learn about .NET stuff you may not have known about.
  • Collect a comprehensive database of information on all things .NET.
  • Demonstrate to myself and others what can be accomplished with data-centric static sites.
  • Provide an example of how Wyam can be used to power highly customized static sites.

I’ll talk more about the technical nature of the site and those last two goals in a follow-up post, but for now I’d like to focus on the community aspects of the site. If you’d like skip the details on different areas of the site but want to know how to help, skip ahead to the call to action.

And a quick note: please don't take missing projects, blogs, events, etc. as even remotely personal. I've been slowly adding items for months and at some point I realized I would have to just ship the thing or it would never get out the door. I'll continue to add items, but now I also need your help to make sure we catalog everything out there.
