Have you got lost in the maze of tutorials available for Silverlight and WPF?

Silverlight Confusion

Silverlight Confusion

 

I was looking for a tool that would allow me to organize links to all the articles that I have read.

I would like to add notes about each of the articles to tell me what important feature or technique is being explained. The notes would also tell me where to find the projects I installed or implemented on my own development systems.

I would also like to be able to index the articles by tags and categories and order the articles, videos, or tutorials in a way that will help me learn the subject in detail without missing anything out. Maybe something like a learning tree.

So for instance in Silverlight, you may have:

Silverlight Tutorial Part 1 (of 8): Creating “Hello World” with Silverlight 2 and VS 2008 by Scott Guthrie, here.

Find on my computer here:
C:\Documents and Settings\Luddite\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\Silverlight\MSDiggSample_VB

Jesse Liberty has started Project Turing, here.

This project uses RIA Services which is currently in beta, I will want to come back to this when RIA Services has been officially released.

Brad Abrams has a series on BusinessApps for Silverlight 3 RTM and .NET RIA Services (and now Azure), here.

The articles are numerous and varied and some way of keeping things up to date, allowing you to replace articles that have become obsolete, or replace articles which you have found to do a better job.

Can anyone recommend a good product that would help with this.

Scot Hanselman recommends Evernote, not for this, but I was wondering if something like Evernote would fit the bill…

  1. Yes! Use Microsoft OneNote. I believe EverNote is similar, but I’ve only used OneNote and I can tell you firsthand it has revolutionized the way I store my info these days. No more txt docs or Word docs in folders. All in my portable and MS Desktop searchable OneNote notebook.

    Once you use it, you’ll never go back. Google OneNote & development; you’ll find some great articles and case studies on how folks use it. Apparanetly it’s quite in vogue within MS dev teams from what I’ve read too.
