I have just completed a two-year gig as the solution architect and lead developer working on a project for the State Of Wisconsin.
The main goal of the project was to update a circa 1997 classic ASP web application to a modern design using ASP.NET MVC 3 as the development platform.
I learned and accomplished quite a bit on that long journey.
So, I have decided to try to make an effort to share some of the best things I learned during the course of that project, and maybe put a spin on a few enhancements along the way by trying to do a few things a little bit different this time around.
Throughout the course of the next several blog entries I will document a process for creating an enterprise level MVC 3 web application.

Working from home saves businesses money,
by reducing or eliminating the need to provide office space and equipment to support an on site location for a worker. Working from home encourages use of electronic communications like email, intranet sites, and phone - significantly reducing paper use and waste.
Reduce worker stress
A worker that does not have to drive into the office every day is much less stressed and can be far more healthy and productive.
Working from home lowers gas consumption,
which preserves natural resources, reduces polluting emissions such as carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons, and lessens polluting road 'run off.' (And think of the money and stress that's saved!)
Cool the globe!
Less commuter-related car emissions can help reduce global warming. Carbon dioxide is the major contributor of global warming.
See more clearly
Nitrogen oxides produced by excessive car emissions combine with volatile organic compounds and sunlight to produce ground-level ozone (otherwise known as smog).
Help preserve our food sources
Ozone and nitrous oxides contribute to an estimated annual crop yield loss of two to four billion dollars.
Less commuting can equal more green, open spaces
Fewer cars could reduce the demand for new or wider roads, which use up land and natural resources.
Enjoy the silence
Less traffic means less noise pollution.
