Today we had a first go at creating the solution and relevant projects in Visual Studio 2008 to get the framework for writing code. Starting with blank canvas is never easy but fortunately we have plenty of examples around. We looked at the beefy solution we're working on at the moment. It has over 20 project and a deeply nested folder structure - and thus required lots of hand crafting of the solution and project files. We looked at some project hosted on Codeplex like the Silverlight & WPF Timeline Control and most importantly we looked at our draft architecture. Finally, we wanted the projects name and structure to reflect the namespaces they go to. With all this in mind and an hour later we had our first stub at the project structure and the first commit to the repository.
