Project Glidepath is a MicroISV Evangelism program that delivers the workflow-based guidance, sample code, content and technology you need to create successful applications for Windows Vista, according to the Microsoft Web site. Project Glidepath is designed to provide the knowledge you, as a MicroISV, need to be successful by providing step-by-step instructions for everything from how to get started with Windows Presentation Foundation to how to write and publish a press release, the site continues.Glidepath is part of Microsoft’s Software Factory initiative – a Microsoft initiative about which the company has said relatively little during the past year. Software factories are chunks of code designed to serve as foundations for programming projects.

Glidepath code packets can be downloaded via RSS into developers’ software factories. Developers can write Glidepath components upon which other programmers can build and/or simply use Glidepath packages to build their own standalone apps, according to information on Microsoft’s site.

Project Glidepath, an Microsoft evangelism initiative, provides you the step-by-step instructions for everything from how to get started with Windows Presentation Foundation to how to write and publish a press release.

Project Glidepath delivers the workflow-based guidance, sample code, content and custom tools you need to create successful applications for Windows Vista including .Net 3.0 right inside Visual Studio 2005.

Project Glidepath includes:

  • The Project Glidepath Repository Manager – a freely available VS2005 add-in that provides a platform for delivering guidance, content, custom tools and templates for building applications for Windows Vista including .NET 3.0.
  • A web-based repository of software factories and packages containing workflow-based guidance regarding all aspects of being in the software business.  This includes everything you need regarding the technical and non-technical aspects of starting and succeeding as a MicroISV. The Project Glidepath Repository Manager downloads this over an RSS feed right to your development workstation. Being RSS-based means you can synchronize with the master repository on a regular basis for updates and new additions.
