Asp – Web Development .NET Best Practices

Are there other example projects like the Northwind Starters kit around that show you 'best practices' (layers, unit tests, mocking data, o/r mapping tools, …) in architecture of ASP.NET development?

Or links to good and clear resources or documentation? (MSDN is a good reference but no good as tutorial)

  • are there example projects around addressing Visual Studio2008 and/or the AdventureWorks database?

thx, Lieven Cardoen
