awaited 2nd edition of the patterns & practices Application Architecture
Guide has just reached content complete status. Congratulations to J.D. and the
whole Application Architecture Guide team on a superb job! You can download the
content complete version of the guide from the CodePlex site here.

itself is really the tip of the ice berg. J.D. and team have made much more
content, including how-to's and videos, available at the Application
Architecture Guide's Knowledge Base site here.
Check it out and let us know what you think.
for the guide is final editing, getting it published to MSDN and printing it in
book form, so be sure to look for it in a book store near you soon!
