Microsoft recently released the initial version of Software + Services Blueprints.  These blueprints are a series of source code and guidance packages designed to provide an architectural bridge between vision and implementation by making it easier to build S+S applications.

The blueprints serve as a good starting point for designing an developing S+S solutions through source code, architectural guidance, and step-by-step workflow on software construction.  Each S+S Blueprint is focused on the following core areas:

  • Media/Community
  • eCommerce
  • Office Business Applications (OBA)
  • Mobility

with future S+S application areas being planned.  A CodePlex Project Site has been created and will serve as the "hub" for all information, code, and documentation around this great solution offering.
