A team from Microsoft Patterns & Practices have been working to create guidance for building “Modern Web Applications” in conjunction with an advisory group of individuals from the developer community.
“Project Silk provides guidance for building cross-browser web applications with a focus on client-side interactivity. These applications take advantage of the latest web standards like HTML5, CSS3 and ECMAScript 5 along with modern web technologies such as jQuery, Internet Explorer 9, and ASP.NET MVC3.”
To achieve this, the team is creating a reference application to give them a real world example to build and provide a sample to learn from.
The sample application and related guidance documentation are currently available at http://silk.codeplex.com and are free to download. The latest update was June 3rd, 2010 with Drop 10, and updates will continue to be made as the project continues.
I will be posting more on some specifics of the code and guidance, but wanted to share this initial post.
