Microsoft Posters Curah!

Curah! - Microsoft Posters

There are some great Microsoft posters around to provide visual representations of MS products, features, processes and solutions. This page captures those so that you can access them from a single location.



(via Kurt Shintaku's Blog - DOWNLOAD: Microsoft Posters collection)

I might be sorry I'm highlighting this. Not because the content isn't great, but I've just got bad feeling about Curah!. I have to wonder at its lifespan. Personally, I'm thinking about doing something like this, but using a public OneNote Notebook instead. Kind of, sort of the same thing, aren't they? Heck, I wonder if OneNote couldn't replace my blog! :P

In the mean time, this is still a cool resource and nice to have all these in one spot.

The .NET Universe Poster for 2013 is now available

Microsoft Downloads - .NET Universe 2013 Poster

.NET Universe Poster (2013) showing the main .NET SDKs, libraries and packages classified by application type and package type (NuGet, official support, etc.)

Version: 0.9

Date Published: 8/22/2013, 15.6 MB

This poster shows how the trends are changing in .NET as we´re moving from a single large .NET Framework to a more loosely coupled and autonomous libraries and sub-frameworks, many of them even published as NuGet packages and evolving continuously. The number of those libs and packages is evolving and growing, so having a visual photo of it can be helpful. The main idea of the poster is to show that you can create any kind of application with .NET, from the largest applications to the smaller apps: in the cloud, on the web, on desktops, tablets, phones, and in embedded environments (even watches!). Any of those application types is shown as category/bucket in the poster and within each bucket we´re tossing the main libraries/SDKs/packages out. Then we´re also showing cross-cutting concerns buckets like Security, Data Access, and .NET Extension libs. The main categories are the following: - Emerging application patterns (Mobile, Web & Cloud) - Established application patterns (Desktop and Embedded) - Cross-Cutting concerns Finally, the poster is putting a check/mark on every lib/SDK bullet depending if they are or not complaint with the following: - NuGet package - Open Source - Microsoft Official Supported You can print it out or use it as in electronic format (.PDF). Using the electronic format (.PDF) allows you to access each content URL/page related.



And as you would expect, there are active links in the PDF to help take you to the respective tech...

Think, poster-as-table-of-contents-for-technology-information. Think "Minority Report". Think "the presentation IS the information." Think  "infographics".

Simple app, but if it's updated regularly with new posters I think it might be pretty cool...
