Adventure Works Travel finally hits the web

Print | posted on Monday, May 18, 2009 11:36 PM

For those that have attended any of my recent sessions on SharePoint Web Content Management you will have already seen the Adventure Works Travel (AWT) sample site. This sample has now (finally) been released into the wild, and you can grab it at www.mssharepointdeveloper.com. Also available are a number of training modules which I contributed towards. On the right hand side, swivel the navigation to the SharePoint on the Web section to access the training and the sample.

The AWT sample provides excellent guidance on building publishing sites using Office SharePoint Server’s WCM features. I know a few folks won’t thank me for mentioning it, but if you remember MCMS, this is like Woodgrove, but this time it’s pretty decent :) Go check it out!

[UPDATE] To all those trying to grab the AWT installer, it’s not there anymore so please don’t send me anymore mail, or comments! Pretty please! :)  I don’t know why it was removed and I don’t know when it will be back. I will post an update once it’s back. Apologies.

[UPDATE] Now available at http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/spotw/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=2702
