Learn to develop Add-Ins with the Newbie WHS Developer Kit

Nick, author of the popular AutoExit Add-In for Windows Home Server has just released what he is calling the Newbie WHS Developer Kit. The development kit is a collection of extensive documentation, tutorials, and templates all designed to help a software developer get started quickly with creating Add-Ins for Windows Home Server. Nick leveraged and organized already existing resources from Sam Wood and Brendan Grant, then added a ton of his own content to produce a very thorough guide.

What I tried to do is create 1 package with all kinds of tutorials by combining them and walking you through the different steps of setting up a development environment up until the release, but also by including on how to create help files, localize an add-in, test it, release it,…

Nick was kind enough to give me an advance look at this development kit a few days ago for review, and even though I’ve released several add-ins of my own over the past couple years, there are some topics contained in the documentation that I’ll be referencing for future development projects.

If you’re interested in creating an Add-In for Windows Home Server, or just curious about what all it takes to create one then be sure to visit the Asoft.be blog for more info and the download link.
