I don't know if the term “Entry Level Enterprise“ has been used before.  If it has I apologize to the originator and I respectfully yield credit to the individual(s) who used it before me.

I will be using Entry Level Enterprise a lot.  To me it is a key component of seeing IT in the US survive.  It is about helping our brethren of all coding persuasions to identify, understand and utilize tools and methodologies for developing Enterprise Level solutions.  Some very simple examples are Test Driven Development, Patterns and Practices, and Domain Driven Design.

I'm not sure that I will be adding anything new to these and other spaces.  My goal is to help IT professionals to understand these concepts in consumable pieces.  And to help them identify when to or not to use them.  It's not sexy or ground breaking, but it is important.  I will certainly have my own personal favorite methodologies, but I will not pick superlatives in an attempt not to lose my message or audience.  Anything less would undermine what I am trying to do.

And my message is; that Joe Shmoe developer can and should engage in these techniques and methodologies and not be overwhelmed.  I want to give them a zero entry point into the space.  I think there are a lot of folks that just need to be pointed in the right direction and I'd like to be one of many people to be pointing.

So the true reason for this post is to see if I am on to something.  Does the idea have merit?   Am I repeating something somebody else has already tried?  Is the idea crap?  Talk back to me, I really want your opinion on this one before I try to start any kind of crusade.

As someone who works at a shop that generally can afford to hire from lower salaried end of the developer pool, I can attest that this is a much needed thing. We get folks right out of college that have a Computer Science degree, but no idea what is required for developing enterprise level applications.

Many of them don't even know where to start.
