Err… I hope I have written it correct.

No, I am not a .NET or C# enthusiast. But if you are out there and looking for some excellent .NET expertise, you must start following these guys blogs. They are producing great real-world .NET information on almost a daily basis.

You’ll get too many lists of developers around the net but I don’t want you to nuke the whole thing and get away from the blog-reading thing. I would suggest you to take a moment and go visit each one of them. Yes, it will take a long time but the time spent will be worthy investment.

I will be counting on you guys (our readers) to expand the list in the comment section below.

So with no particular order, here are the top 33 .NET developers -
