Last week I had the opportunity to meet with a group of MVPs in
That discussion prompted me to write about some of the things that our PAG team is currently doing. This month, we are streaming a series of webcasts discussing different aspects of the Enterprise Library — a library of application blocks designed to assist developers with common enterprise development challenges. The Enterprise Library has been developed by the Microsoft patterns & practices group in collaboration with business partners such as Avanade Inc, Bowne Global Solutions, Foundstone Inc & Infosys Technologies.
Application blocks are a type of guidance, provided as source code that can be used “as is,” extended, or modified by developers to use on enterprise development projects
Our vision is to build a broad community of customers and partners sharing and extending their own Application Blocks that are consistent with and integrate into the patterns & practices Enterprise Library.
The Enterprise Library is not a Microsoft product. It is guidance, designed to be reused, customized and extended. Like other patterns & practices deliverables, the Enterprise Library is associated with a community site where you can post questions, provide feedback and connect with other users for sharing ideas.
If you are Enterprise Developer, take a look at the Enterprise Library.
