Rob Boucher talks about a very helpful (and free!) application architecture guide contributed to by the who's who in the .NET Community, both inside and outside of Microsoft. You'll pick up some great tips. Writers: J.D. Meier (Project Lead), Alex Homer, David Hill, Jason Taylor, Prashant Bansode, Lonnie Wall, Rob Boucher Jr., Akshay Bogawat, Praveen Rangarajan (Test), and Dennis Rea (Edit).
Rob Boucher Jr is one of the authors that produced the Microsoft patterns & practices Application Architecture Guide 2.0, which is available in PDF form at
. He's been in the software space for 16 years, starting out in 1993 supporting the Visual C++ 1.0 compiler in Microsoft Developer Support. It was there he learned core lessons about the proper use and organization of content for developer customers. After welcoming the demise of the evil that was 16-bit memory models, he moved into content publishing and documentation. For a time, he was responsible for the categorization and organization of the entirety of the Microsoft Knowledge Base and later for the design of a replacement system that authored, stored and published KB articles. He has also been involved in a number of areas inside and outside of Microsoft including .NET Development, Testing, Content Architecture and Taxonomy, Systems Analysis and Design, and SEO on various products such as Windows NT, Windows Media Player, Windows Mobile, and Windows Live. His passion for instruction and guidance led him to the patterns & practices group where he was on the team that authored the WCF Security Guide as well as the more recent App Arch Guide 2.0. He currently works on content with friend and project leader J.D. Meier, who blogs about the App Arch Guide and software architecture in general at
