File Exchange Pick of the Week

Looking Back: 2008 in Review

Posted by Brett Shoelson,

This week, I continue looking backward, with a retrospective of all of the File Exchange Picks of the Week for 2008.

Once again, I have skipped any Picks that refer to files that have been removed from the File Exchange, or to tutorial videos, or contest announcements, items not useful in an index of this nature.

You can read the original blog posts for each of these picks by clicking on the names of the files and following the links to the "Pick of the Week" tag. As always, your comments are welcome.
