On Line Source Control

I have received some requests for the source code/project of the examples that I have been showing on this blog. Here to fore, I have been zipping up the solution and email the requestor. I thought I could take it up a level by using some of the services that are available on the internet. I checked out github, codeplex, googlecode, and assembla. I had 3 basic criteria – can I restrict the project to people I want, can I use TFS (I am a Microsoft dev after all) and is it free? Here is what I found:

TFS?

Restrict Users

Free?

Rob Seder then suggested that I just upload the zipped up projects that I want into the blog using LiveWriter. <Sound of me slapping my forehead>Doh! </Sound of me slapping my forehead>.  Finally, for basic file sharing, I can always use SkyDrive…

I’ll go back and do that for the posts that people have emailed me about and perhaps in the future…
