I’ll also add four frontend projects (an ASP.NET MVC 4, a Web Forms project, a WCF service project, and a windows command line application) which are discussed in detail in Part 6, 7, 8 and 9 of this series respectively. In the next article in this series I’ll extend the solution with four more projects for unit, integration, UI and service tests.

I have been wanting to do this for a long time, but there were always other things on my Todo list with a higher priority. The wait has been worth it though; since the last series targeting .NET 3.5 that I published in late 2008 and early 2009, new and compelling technologies have been released that make writing an N-Layered application such as the Contact Manager a lot easier to write.
