In this multi part series I am going to explore KiGG design and architecture as well as projects structures.
At the beginning I would like to give a brief about KiGG History.
KiGG is similar to DotNetKicks, Digg and DZone. However it much closed to DotNetKicks and way smaller than DZone. KiGG was founded by Kazi Manzur Rashid and first introduced in his article on DotNetSlackers.com: Kigg - Building a Digg Clone with ASP.NET MVC, that was on Feb 2008. It was built with First ASP.NET MVC preview.
In early this year 2009 on January, Rashid was almost done with KiGG, however ASP.NET MVC 1.0 was not released yet. At this time Rashid announced DotNetShoutout.com as first live application based on KiGG. On March 2009 Rashid released version 2.2 of KiGG after the release of ASP.NET MVC 1.0.
I joined the team on April and start working with Entity Framework implementation for KiGG as well as supporting the project.
Thank you Rashid for giving me this opportunity.
