I have been excusing myself with numerous reasons for not writing the blog, and one of them was working on the Application Architecture Guide 2.0. Well good news is, yesterday we released our patterns & practices Application Architecture Guide 2.0 Beta 2.
As our team defines it, its a Microsoft playbook for the application platform. It's our guide to help solution architects and developers make the most of the Microsoft platform. It's a distillation of many lessons learned. It’s principle-based and pattern-oriented to provide a durable, evolvable backdrop for application architecture. It's a collaborative effort among product team members, field, industry experts, MVPs, and customers. This is the guide that helps you understand our platform, choose among the technologies, and build applications based on lessons learned and proven practices.
Please Download the Guide and help us improve it by providing feedback on the issues and discussion tabs of the codeplex site.
