Recently I posted a list of the Best C# Blogs.  Today we recognize the best C# Web sites.

Following (in alphabetical order) are the best C# sites active on the Web today.  Also included is the “About” section of the site (edited for space and clarity).  Please comment if you can recommend other excellent C# web sites that didn’t make my list.


Blocks4.NET is a .NET community site for those who buy and sell .NET products and components.

C# Corner

C# Corner was formed and maintained by professionals, who strongly believe in sharing their piece of code with other developers.  It is a free source site for C# and .NET developers.  C# and .NET developers can meet and exchange their ideas, code and expertise on the site through discussion forums or submissions.

C# Help

The site doesn’t even have an “About” section, so I’ll let the content speak for itself: 55,000+ forum postings, 700+ technical articles, and 62,000+ active subscribers.

C# Practical Learning

Lessons with step-by-step instructions and a patient detail-oriented approach, accentuated by various useful examples in every section.  To make it easy to learn effectively, the lessons are organized in topics so you can jump to the particular part you are interested in.


CodePlex is Microsoft’s open source project hosting web site.  You can use CodePlex to create new projects to share with the world, join others who have already started their own projects, or use the applications on the site and provide feedback.

Code Project

The Code Project was formed to provide developers with a place to meet and exchange ideas.  We provide developers with all the resources they need to help them in their day-to-day programming, as well as helping them keep current with the latest technologies.

Code Search Engines

There are three good code search engines available, but it’s still too early to determine the best: Google Code Search, Krugle and Koders.  Which is your favorite?


DotNetKicks.com is a community-based news site edited by our members. It specializes in .NET development techniques, technologies and tools including ASP.NET, C#, VB.NET, C++, Visual Studio, SubSonic, Open Source, SQL Server, Silverlight & Mono.  Individual users of the site submit and review stories, the most popular of which make it to the homepage. Users are encouraged to ‘kick’ stories that they would like to appear on the homepage.  If a story receives enough kicks, it will be promoted.

MSDN Forums

No “About” section here either, so some statistics:  There are 1,005,870 users, 461,109 threads, and 1,739,557 posts in these forums. 

MSDN Library

The MSDN Library is an essential resource for developers using Microsoft tools, products, and technologies.  It contains a bounty of technical programming information, including sample code, documentation, technical articles, and reference guides.

MSDN Newsgroups

Ask questions, share information, or exchange ideas with others, including experts from around the globe.  MSDN Subscribers can post .NET product and technology questions to the newsgroup community and get an answer from the newsgroup community or a Microsoft support professional within 2 business days.  Managed newsgroup support is currently available for more than 200 English newsgroups related to .NET technologies.


PInvoke.net is primarily a wiki, allowing developers to find, edit and add PInvoke signatures, user-defined types, and any other information related to calling Win32 and other unmanaged APIs from managed code (written in languages such as C# or VB.NET).  .NET developers worldwide can easily contribute to the community, sharing their valuable knowledge, whenever they have time to do so.


SourceForge.net is the world’s largest Open Source software development web site, hosting more than 100,000 projects and over 1,000,000 registered users with a centralized resource for managing projects, issues, communications, and code.  SourceForge.net has the largest repository of Open Source code and applications available on the Internet, and hosts more Open Source development products than any other site or network worldwide.  SourceForge.net provides a wide variety of services to projects we host, and to the Open Source community.

Windows Forms FAQ

The Windows Forms FAQ has been collected from newsgroup posts, various mailing lists and the employees of Syncfusion.
