Project Description
Minima is a blog engine built on Themelia Pro 2.0 and WCF. Therefore, it provides a completely new paradigm for blog engines. It's also used to power NetFXHarmonics.com and is used by Jampad Technology, Inc. in .NET training.

The purpose of Minima is to provide functional, real-world applications of .NET technologies. Therefore, Minima is continually fully re-architected (not "over architected"; there's no such thing in the professional world), re-designed, and re-structured on a regular basis to demonstrate the most of up-to-date technologies, paradigms, and best-practices.
