Patterns and Practices: Guidance Explorer
The Patterns and Practices Team continue to have a major impact on software development both inside and outside Microsoft. Their latest offering is Guidance Explorer.
Guidance Explorer allows you to create and distribute a set of standard performance and security best-practices that your team can adhere to.
From J.D Meier's blog: "Guidance Explorer is a new, experimental tool from the patterns & practices team that radically changes the way you consume guidance as well as the way we create it. If you’ve felt overwhelmed looking across multiple sources for good security or performance guidance then Guidance Explorer is the tool for you"
It's currently aimed at ASP.NET, but windows guidelines are apparently in the pipeline. I've just downloaded it, and I might blog my experiences later...
