Today I finally got fed up with writing all those repeated properties for XML serialization and data binding. I decided that I couldn’t wait for code expansions in Whidbey:

QuickCode .NET is a Visual Studio add-in that allows you to type short phrases like prop int test and press Alt+Q to expand this into a getter/setter property. It is completely configurable so that you can modify the built-in expansions to your coding style and create new snippets as you like.

It is only US$29 and with today’s exchange rate that makes it pretty darned cheap in my book.
