Code Converter makes Hanselman's Ultimate Tool List

I'm not sure how this one slipped under my radar, but renowned blogger, podcaster, and Microsoft Senior Program Manager Scott Hanselman bestowed a great honor on the Telerik Code Converter by adding it to his 2007 "Ultimate Developer and Power Users Tool List." The annual list collects the hundreds of little tools and utilities that Scott deems "super important" to any Developer's daily grind. It features everything from Reflector to Firebug to, now, the Code Converter.

For those of you that are not aware of the Telerik Code Converter, it is a site that I created about a year ago to help developers convert code snippets from C# to VB and vice versa. The goal of the site is simple: create the easiest to use and most useful C#/VB code converter on the web. The site use's Telerik's controls throughout, of course, and utilizes Ajax to make the conversions quick and painless. It also features things like optional syntax highlighting, line numbering, and a cool batch mode that converts multiple zipped files at once!

Since it launched, the Converter has grown in popularity and now sees thousands of visitors each month. It is a real honor to make Scott's list, though, so thanks to everyone that helped improve the site and make it one of the best!
