The goal of patterns & practices is to enhance developer success through guidance on designing and implementing software solutions. We develop content, reference implementations, samples, and frameworks that explain how to build scalable, secure, robust, maintainable software solutions. We work with community and industry experts on every project to ensure that some of the best minds in the industry have contributed to and reviewed the guidance as it develops. Visit the patterns & practices Developer Center to learn more about patterns & practices and what we do.
