Me and My Works

July 2008 - Posts


Employee Info Starter Kit is an asp.net starter kit, which demonstrates the use of simple CRUD operations for maintaining a company's employee information. It has been developed by me as a guideline for building enterprise level projects.

In last few months this starter kit placed in the top chart at code.msdn.microsoft.com for several times regarding the popularity.

A very exciting news for all of Employee Info Starter Kit fans is yesterday this starter kit has been placed in the front page of Official Asp.Net site, in the "In the News" section! It has been placed in the listing of the elite starter kits of Official Asp.Net site.

As it developer, I can say, it's just beginning..over time I will add more and more features in terms of best practices for several areas, so that newbes and experts can get one stand-alone solution to grab, learn and implement most of the best practices, without going thru "tons" of tutorial!

Here are few highlights of the future version plan:

1. Full Unit Testing Automation

2. Web & Load Testing Automation

3. ASP.NET 3.5 Version

4. Silverlight Version

5. ASP.NET MVC Version

and lot more ...

So stay tuned!

If you don't want to wait till then, lets go to the project site and start download now..Cheers!

It's great pleasure for me that Microsoft has awarded me as MVP (in ASP.NET category) again this year! I become MVP for the second time, for my contribution in developer community. Check out my MVP profile here.

Besides, another interesting news to be shared with all, in the last weekly show of Channel 9, two of my posts published here 10 Tools Which I Left After Using VSTS 2008 and 10 Tools Which I Still Use, Even I Have VSTS 2008 has been discussed.

Thanks Microsoft for your recognition! It really encourages me a lot to grow myself more and more in terms of knowledge and contribution in technical domain and community.
