A few months back I got to talking to J Sawyer who is a Developer Evangelist in the Texas area about the work I've been doing with the MVC Storefront. Before I worked at Microsoft, J was my "main man" with the Commerce Starter Kit - the very first Open Source project I ever worked on. During the course of the conversation J asked me if I had any plans to do any "WebForm-y" stuff; and I said "no" since this was supposed to be an ASP.NET MVC project. But then I started thinking... ASP.NET 3.0 doesn't have any Starter Kits out there (that I know of) and it's time we had one :). If I've done my job right - J should be able to take the back-end goodness (Services, Data Access, Unit Tests, etc) and put them behind an ASP.NET WebForms site. And he did! And thus CSK 3.0 is born.
