Late last year we started the Visual Studio 2010 Architecture Guidance project … probably the worst time as December is a very inactive month with everyone enjoying a well deserved break and January being a very active month to re-start initiatives, thus having little time and bandwidth for these kind of projects. Nevertheless the team has ensured that the guidance project is picking up momentum and recently released a DRAFT of the core scenarios to the Rangers for comment and are hard at work on a BETA release for the core scenarios and a DRAFT release for the extensibility and Hands-on-lab (HOL) scenarios.
As soon as the BETA content is available I will start sharing some of the nuggets on this blog, to ensure that “you” can get value and “we” can get “your” feedback :)
>>>>>> In the meantime we would really appreciate if you could add comments to this post or contact me directly in terms of questions you would like us to answer in the questions & answers document, which will accompany the core scenario and extensibility scenario guidance documents. While the scenario train is steaming on well-defined tracks, we have room to manoeuvre in the questions & answers document and probably in the hands-on-lab (HOL) environments as well. So, sharpen your pencils, dust off your keyboards and send us your comments!
The snapshots of the leads who are driving this project are included below to give this project a face, or rather faces :) When we ship, we will obviously expand this gallery to all contributors and reviewers …
The leads from left to right are: Clemens Reijnen (MVP), Clementino de Mendonça, Francisco Xavier Fagas Albarracín (MVP), Larry Guger (MVP), Marcel Vries (MVP), RandyMiller (MSFT) and Willy-Peter Schaub (MSFT).
