  1. Small ecommerce site with login. Should show a catalogue with admin facilities, how shopping carts work (so, sessions etc…). Could also provide web service access…

  2. A shopping cart would be done with the profile provider now I would say 🙂

    My vote would be something fun like an image-dump or a amihotornot type site..

  3. Something which shows advanced usage of Personalization and Themeing.

  4. Dag H. Baardsen says:

    Try a Wiki application – useful for programmers, should demonstrate lots of things in ASP.NET including membership, master pages, personalization, perhaps mobile + compact framework?

  5. I’ll agree that something highlighting personalization and theming would be great… one option that I thought of immediately (Wiki) was already mentioned), but what about a content management system of some sorts, just something simple. This too would show off all of the key features of ASP.NET 2.0.

    A hosted CRM application with configuarble screens and access rules (I need someone to do my work for me – please release within the next 3 months :-))

    I’d personally like to see something that demonstrates an effective use of skinning with user controls and CSS sheets (where users can choose skins and save in cookies)…

  8. Add a Wiki to an ASP.NET Content Management System like CommunityServer.Org

  9. Try an ASP.NET 2.0 Newsletter / Mailing List / ListServe System

  10. How about a starter kit on how to use the Enterprise Library with ASP.NET 2.0. That is when the version of the Enterprise Library is released for .NET 2.0.
