This is a significant release for Guidance Explorer (GE). Our online "guidance store" is now hosted on MSDN. To take advantage of this, you need to download the new version of Guidance Explorer (release 20071206)
What Is the Guidance Store
Our guidance store is a catalog of reusable guidance nuggets for helping you build applications. The catalog is organized by the following:
- Types (e.g. principles, patterns, practices, guidelines, checklists, how tos, Q&A, app scenarios, code examples ... etc.)
- Topics (e.g. security, performance., project management, reporting, build, ... etc.)
- Technologies (e.g. .NET Framework, ADO.NET, ASP.NET, XML, SQL Server, Visual Studio Team System, Web Services ... etc.)
- Techniques (e.g. security inspection, performance inspection, threat modeling, performance testing ... etc.)
At a high-level, you can think of the catalog as a collection of application scenarios, "building codes" and engineering practices.
What is Guidance Explorer
Guidance Explorer is a smart client application that talks to the Guidance Store over a Web service. You can use GE to create, organize and share your favorite guidance nuggets.
