Are you new to the software factory concept? If so, there’s a good overview article on .NET Developer’s Journal by Gunther Lenz and Christoph Wienands, who are writing a book on the subject, Practical Software Factories in .NET (due in June from Apress).
In the first part of our Software Factory series we start with working out the problems we face in software development today, which are the motivation for Software Factories. We will explain the basic concepts, the theory behind it, as well as the basic building blocks.
Part II will then give an introduction to the actual implementation of Software Factories. For a good part these two articles are based on our findings while writing the book Practical Software Factories in .NET.
