Those of you who have been paying attention may have remembered a post I did over a year ago announcing the p&p team’s plans to update the excellent but now very dated Application Architecture for .NET guide.
Those of you who were paying even more attention may have noticed that the promised guide does not actually exist. At the time of the post I knew that I was going to be moving back to Australia and out of the patterns & practices team. However I left the guide in the capable hands of Edward Jezierski, who (as it turned out) also left the team not long after me. So with both of us gone, the project unfortunately needed to be put on ice.
However the good news is that J.D. Meier, long-time p&p’er and author of all sorts of guides on topics such as performance and security, has picked up where Ed and I left off. You can find out about J.D’s thoughts on the guide at this post on his blog, and follow the progress and provide feedback on the App Arch 2.0 Guidance Project Site on Codeplex.
So the moral of the story is that I wasn’t lying – it’s just taken a little longer than expected to show some visible progress!
