Dashboard Prevalue editor - a simple Umbraco package that I
released on our.umbraco.org.
The idea behind this package is that you'd use it to allow
content editors to control PreValue lists. You don't want to expose
them to the developer section so you can just place the datatypes
you'd like them to be able to edit on the Umbraco dashboard in
whichever section you'd like.
The UI is also a little simpler than the regular prevalue editor
you just "type and tab". Each time you hit tab a new PreValue is

I think that when a developer is learning how to extend Umbraco for the first time, getting hung up on mis-spellings, missing quotes and semi... some of the tooling and debugging techinques at the same time.
At the time of writing JSON validation isn't part of Visual Studio without the web essentials plugin and even if you have this you still need to associate the .manifest file extension to get JSON validation working.
From teaching the Umbraco course we learned that when a property editor doesn't work there are a few common causes and frustratingly each is diagnosed by the developer in a different way:

Everyone knows about Firebug right? If not and you are a web developer, you are missing out and making your life much harder!Yslow is an add-on for firebug that analyses the download time of a webpage and gives you tips on how to improve.

This is a great time saver as it removes my temptation to check if there are any new posts in my reader every 5-10 minutes which obviously interrupts... updating/replying operations that you’d expect. A lot of people would argue that twitter is a waste of time during a working day but I frequently us it for crowd sourcing solutions to the technical problems that I am having.

I seem to be answering a lot of questions about the way I work
recently so I thought I'd write a blog post to clear it all up. The
confusion seems to be around how I split my time between Umbraco
and TeamSite/LiveSite work and what Ferguson Moriyama is - just a
front company for my invoicing or an actual company?
Here is how it all fits together.

A while back I discussed the desire to have a document that
helped me to evaluate a web content management system from a
developer perspective. A few other people expressed interest in the
idea so I've published a very rough first draft here... take

perform basic tasks such as create content types and templates. The

So a little while later than planned I'm taking the next steps
with building the new Ferguson Moriyama site
with Umbraco 5. Since last time I
wrote I've upgraded to Umbraco to the RTM
release, but I've also upgraded the office PC so it is hard to
comment on performance.

A web poll is a useful way of gathering opinions from your site users. It is also one of the most trivial pieces of web functionality that you could write.A friend who is a java developer and has never really used .net or Umbraco wanted to see a real world example, so I put this together for him real quick (he was impressed).http://darren-fergusoncom.site.securepod.com/development/polldemo.aspxI’ll look at releasing a package at some point. It is implemented as a Macro that takes a question and a delimited set of answers as parameters.
