If you create smaller projects, plug-ins, libraries or, perhaps, you are a web developer that likes to keep the latest JavaScript libraries in the mix, consider updating your project templates in Visual Studio 2010.
 
Here's how you might update the jQuery libraries to the latest for an ASP.NET MVC 2 project:
 
1) Create a new project using the template that you want to update (like, ASP.NET MVC 2 Empty Web Application).
 
2) Make any changes that you like, including updating the jQuery references, or perhaps baking jQuery into a Site.Master file that you add.
 
3) Create an icon that you would like to use for your template (optional).
 
4) Grab a screen shot that represents your changes or maybe a picture of your mom or something that you can use to identify your project in Visual Studio (optional, especially the Mom pic).
 
5) Click File –> Export Template and fill in the name, description and optionally the graphic files that you wish to use.
 
6) Make sure the auto-import checkbox is ticked, then run the export.
The next time you create a new project your exported template will be in the list to choose with the name you selected.
 
Good luck!

Though I have been mentoring other developers for the last decade, I have recently found a strong interest in writing and am learning to translate the fun of in-person teaching to something I can get into article form.
 
I enjoy following technology trends, new gadgets and trying to guess where innovation will lead us next (I'm kinda holding out for a robot-served utopia, but willing to submit to our future robot leaders).
