Before I continue pointing out SDK samples, why not take a look at a great end-to-end .NET Framework 3.0 demo first? It's been out there for a while and hence this isn't really news, but in case you've not seen it (or the latest revision of it) go check out DinnerNow. The demo covers WCF, Workflow, CardSpace and PowerShell. Awesome piece of work from our Evangelism team.

Doug Purdy, the (my) Group Program Manager of the Connected Framework team (owning WCF and WF) just got email:

Dear Douglas, 

Last year you emailed us regarding .NET Framework 3.0. We are emailing you to let you know that we have installed .NET Framework 3.0 on our webservers.

 

We continue to improve our product so please keep an eye out on our service.

 

Have a great day.

Doug Purdy, our Group Program Manager, runs a wodge of home-cooked code every now and then to produce the link list below. I thought that you all out there might find that valuable and therefore I stole a copy of the list for you.
