We have recently released the early DRAFT scenario outlines of our Visual Studio 2010 Architecture Guidance project to a small community of rangers and product group members, with the intent to get early feedback and especially warning signals if we are straying off what is perceived as important to “you”. We are not ready to share the guidance on a broader scale, but would like to share two of the diagrams which are becoming the base foundation for the guidance … your candid feedback will be highly appreciated as usual.
Note that we will inject colour into the final diagrams … the monochrome look and feel adds a pinch of nostalgia and mystery to the diagrams :)
