A few days ago (late June 2013, at BUILD) we released a new paper showing a global and broad picture of Microsoft development technologies for custom LOB applications.

Download: http://www.microsoft.com/net/nettechnologyguidance

The Microsoft portfolio of development technologies is pretty large and it's applicable to many software development scenarios across different industries. It is also continuously evolving and growing. Professionals who are involved in software application development might find it difficult to navigate this large portfolio without high-level guidance on technology positioning and selection.

This paper provides guidance on how to effectively select the right Microsoft development technologies and approaches for your custom application development; depending on the priorities you have for your application and for your business domain.

In order to position development technologies it also recommends different scenarios and approaches based on the application priorities, like Data-Driven application, Domain-Driven application, and also by UI- type (web, store-app, mobile, desktop, etc.).

How to use it?

This guide covers a broad spectrum of software development options that focus on business applications. It is written as a reference, so you can go straight to the area you are interested in, such as “Emerging Application Patterns” or “Established Application Patterns.”

MODERN BUSINESS APPLICATIONS

The guide is divided in three main sections:

- Overview (Introduction to Microsoft development story)

- Emerging Application Patterns (Modern Business Applications)

    o Devices

    o Services

- Established Application Patterns

    o Small/Medium Business Applications

    o Large Mission-Critical Business Applications

Each of those sections has tables covering the different technologies categorized on the following areas:

- Native UI technologies (Windows Store apps, Desktop, etc.)

- Web technologies

- Services, cloud and back-end technologies

Additionally, we’re pointing to useful approaches depending on the type of application you want to create, like RADs approaches for small/medium Data-Driven apps, or Domain-Driven Design approaches for Core Business/Domain and Mission-Critical applications.

The first time you use this guidance, it is recommended to read the initial introduction section, which explains the vision of the guide and its backbone. Afterwards, you can directly go to the section you are interested on based on you application priorities and categorization.

    Estimado Cesar.

    Como puedo ser participe de revisiones de los libros que traducen al español? me encantaría colaborar revisando los borradores de los libros traducidos, tal como se los propones a las personas que realizaron comentarios previos al mio.

    Saludos cordiales.

    1. @Roy Mandame in email a CESARDL at Microsoft.com y te ponder en contacto con personas de Microsoft Spain. Yo trabajo en Redmond, Seattle, U.S. por lo que aqui no solemos traducir, todo suele ser en Ingles.

    Amigo, le has puesto orden al caos que tenia en cuanto a tecnologías .Net, excelente trabajo, ojalá puedan mantenerlo actualizado ya que MS te cambia el panorama bastante seguido.

  3. @ Klark y Rafael

    Por favor, madadme un email a cesardl at Microsoft.com y os doy acceso al borrador de la traduccion en Espanol.

    La traduccion lo he pospuesto un poco porque queria esperar a actualizarlo con cosas nuevas que anunciamos ahora en //BUILD 2014 (Abril 2014), como las UNIVERSAL WINDOWS APPS, y otras cosas de .NET.

    Pero vendria bien revisiones de la traduccion, asi que, mandadme un email y seguimos en contacto, ok?

    Buenas noches.

    Tambien estoy interesado en la version traducida al español, y podria ayudarte con la misma, ya que, es un documento muy valioso que vale la pena compartirlo para que la gran masa de desarrolladores tengan una buena guia para compenetrarse con las tecnologias disponibles, patrones, etc.

  5. Cesar de la Torre [MSFT] says:

    Lo vamos a tener dentro de poco en ESPANOL, ALEMAN y FRANCES. Espero que finales de ENERO 2014.

    Estoy precisamente estos dias a ratos que saco cuando puedo revisando la traduccion al Espanol. Es una paradoja que lo haya escrito yo en ingles y no tengo tiempo para traducirlo yo al castellano, ja!…, por lo que solo tengo tiempo para revisarlo.

    Si te interesa mucho tenerlo pronto, te puedo mandar un borrador y me mandas tu feedback con cosas que no veas bien traducidas?.  deal? 🙂

    Mandame un mail a CESARDL at MICROSOFT.COM si quieres ser reviewer de la version en castellano, ok?

    Buenas Noches

    Gracias Nuevamente
