We are here...

by johnstaniforth In reply to Lead them to .NET

<p>I am migrating the organisation from Access to SQL Server with .NET developed front end. We quickly jumped to SQL 2005 and VS 2005 .NET 2 as there seemed more advantage to avoiding building in obselence than the risks of being at the cutting edge (smaller projects have been developed in .NET 1 and I have been gaining familiarity since the Beta came out).</p>
<p>We are also using the workgroup version of Team Foundation Server to enable team working and handle source control.</p>
<p>GIS capabilities are being added to SQL Server with the Mapinfo Spatialware add in product - after quite a long wait their version for SQL 2005 is imminently being released!</p>
<p>To provide interactive mapping we also using Mapinfo's MapXtreme 2005 .NET - unfortunately we are still awaiting the .NET 2 version of this which works with VS 2005.</p>
<p>Additional GUI widgets are being provided by Infragistics suite.</p>
<p>I have designed a n tier architecture to permit hundreds of outlying staff connecting via broadband to gain responsive access - with Web Services employed to deliver the data over broadband effectively.</p>
<p>To improve the enterprise design I have employed the Enterprise Library for .NET 2 (I've been working with it's many incarnations since .NET 1)</p>
<p>The project is being managed using the SCRUM framework.</p>
<p>I'll be keeping this blog informed of progress - as you can see a great deal is about to happen ....</p>
