ASP.NET Scenarios Map

ASP.NET Scenarios Map

The Microsoft ASP.NET Scenarios Map is a consolidated and shared view of the common scenarios and tasks with ASP.NET. You will find Getting Started and Architecture scenarios first, followed by other common areas. Scenarios in each group should represent common tasks developers would face when building ASP.NET applications.

Your call to action here is simply scan the ASP.NET Scenarios Map below and either share your scenarios in the comments or email your scenarios to me at FeedbackAndThoughts at live.com.  Be sure to share your scenarios in the form of “how to blah, blah, blah …” – this makes it much easier to act on and update the map.

For a quick review of what a good Scenarios Map looks like, see my related post, 5 Keys to Effective Scenario Maps.
