New Resource for CAB Developers

I recently started working on a project based on the Composite UI Application Block (CAB) from the patterns & practices group at Microsoft. I was initially lost and found it was difficult to find topics in the help. Like many developers, I don't like to read the manual before I get started, but it seems like the documentation is written more like a book than a help file. As a result, "topics" in the help file actually contain a number of topics and you have to scroll through looking for something that might be relevant. I also discovered that there weren't that many hyperlinks.

I also discovered lots of really useful information spread all over the net, mostly in blogs. But there didn't seem to a be a single, central source to find information.

Then it dawned on me. A Wiki would be a great place to have lots of useful information about CAB. So over a weekend I setup a Wiki to cover CAB and related technologies.

Please check out the site, and more importantly, please add to the site. This is a community site. Anyone can sign in and edit or add content.
