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

The folder that contained the installer is empty at the moment. Hopefully it will be uploaded again soon.

Thanks for the update,I just check the site , and found that "site installer" has status of "coming soon" , however for all the training modules (9 of them), labs and power deck is available for download from code.msdn.microsoft.com/.../ProjectReleases.aspx)

Perhaps I missed something while looking for the AWT sample on the site.

The labs seems to be high quality stuff :), keep it up.

Just to let you know they reposted the link to the AWT installer. There were some problems with how they were showing the link in the Silverlight control, so if you want to post the shortest path, the link is code.msdn.microsoft.com/.../ProjectReleases.aspx
