[VB]Books on Visual Studio 2015 Extensibility RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking for a good (or actually any at this point) book on Visual Studio 2015 Extensibility. All the books I have found are so old (2010, 2008, 2005) they would be pretty useless for Visual Studio 2015. I can deal with the book being in any language (VB.NET or C#). Even ones for Visual Studio 2013 might be enough to get me started. Does anybody know of any good books on Visual Studio 2015 Extensibility? Thanks.

  • I have found the resources for learning to extend Visual Studio are very, very limited.  The thing that helped me the most was this series of posts.  It targets 2010 and a little 2012 but the content is solid and very helpful.  I don't believe you will find a book on the topic because the audience for this type of development is pretty small.  Even the posts in this series alluded to a future book that I was never able to find :(

  • There is no such a book. In fact, there hasn't been any book on Visual Studio Packages for any version, only books on add-ins or general VSX without too much depth.

    You have all (or most) resources (docs, articles, samples, downloads, videos, books, etc.) about VSX on my web site: http://www.visualstudioextensibility.com
