SharpDevelop C# to/from VB.NET Code Conversion Tool

I had a play around with the free SharpDevelop IDE the other day, and was surprised to see it has most of the features supported by the expensive Visual Studio IDE – and even a few additional ones – like for example an excellent C# to VB.NET and vice-verca code conversion utility.

In addition to that it’s open source – when’s the last time you had a look at the code behind of your IDE?

No doubt this is a powerful but unfortunately largely overlooked .NET development tool. If you are looking for a free .NET IDE, then SharpDevelop beats the VS Express editions hands down.
