For anyone who has done Java development, you know the first-class tool support that IntelliJ provides for the Java developer. Luckily, JetBrains has entered the Microsoft space with the Visual Studio add-in for C# called ReSharper. This provides a multitude of productivity enhancing features for both C# and ASP.NET. JetBrains just announced a new product called TeamCity which is targeted at providing productivity enhancements to the development team as a whole. With features such as supporting continuous integration, delayed commit, build management, static code analysis and a web-based project dashboard it appears that Team System will have another competitor in the enterprise market space. On a slightly related side note, I was informed that with the next release of ReSharper, which is due out at the end of the year, they will provide support for VB.NET. For those that are interested, there is a TeamCity Early Access Program located here.
