I have had a few questions recently about whether I am planning to update the .NET 3.0 über demo to:

  • (A) make it good and a useable sample :-)
  • (B) to use .NET 3.5 / VS 2008.

The simple answer is Nope .... I don't need to, the fine folk in Redmond have done it for me...

Check out the Dinner Now demo / sample. You can find it at: http://www.dinnernow.net.

" DinnerNow is a fictious marketplace where customers can order food from local restaurants for delivery to their home or office. This sample is designed to demonstrate how you can develop a connected application using several new Microsoft technologies.

The demo utilizes several technologies including: IIS7, ASP.NET Ajax Extensions, Linq, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation, Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Powershell, and the .NET Compact Framework.

The DinnerNow sample application is now available for download. You can download the entire DinnerNow sample code from CodePlex. "


Rather puts my effort to shame :-)
