The CodePlex

Just stumbled across this site called the CodePlex, via

What is CodePlex?

CodePlex is an online software development environment for open and shared source developers to create, host and manage projects throughout the project lifecycle. It has been written from the ground up in C# using .NET 2.0 technology with Team Foundation Server on the back end. CodePlex is open to the public free of charge.

CodePlex includes the following features:

  • Release Management
  • Work Item Tracking
  • Source Code Dissemination
  • Wiki-based Project Team Communications
  • Project Forums
  • News Feed Aggregation


Sounds like SourceForge and GotDotNet. Sounds interesting, oh, and it’s Microsoft site (and is currently in beta), so perhaps it is a GotDotNET replacement? (Just speculating here)

I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more about this sooner, rather than later. News spreads really fast in the blogosphere 🙂
