Visual Studio Achievements: a bit of gamification to your programming

Gamification is a great concept that works really well for some people, including me. Gamification may very well be the reason for success of projects like StackOveflow or Duolingo.

Visual Studio Achievements

Visual Studio Achievements is Visual Studio plugin that rewards you for good practices like having 1000 localized values (Localization Master) and even for bad practices like writing a single line of 300 characters long (Scroll Bar Wizard). For some of the achievements you need to have FxCop installed, but the majority get awarded without the need for it.
