SoftwareGreenhouse.com is a unique new project initiative for the community by Microsoft. It’s amazing cause it allows developers to learn about technologies they have heard about or are learning about in a unique fashion. I believe this is the first time in the world that such an effort is taking place.
The Greenhouse concept
Provide developers a view of an entire software being built. Showcase how the team works how technologies are evaluated and choices made in the software development cycle. Show what the best practices of software development are and engage the community via forums, chats and webcasts. Just like an actuall green house developers can see how development of a full blown mobile application Blue Jab is done. It invoves the latest technology and tools.
