Well, the template itself is not intended for public distribution (it's got FOUO stuff in it regarding our connection strings).
I can post parts of it, such as the DAL it uses because we abhor EF and other ORMs (and I intended to write an article about that), or the technique used in the SessionVars static class (nothing more than a static class that abstracts away the use of "mySessionVar" into properties for the objects placed in the Session, or maybe even the general shared layout stuff (our _Layout.cshtml file only has 30 lines in it).
I can even post an article about how we managed to avoid putting anything specific to then app in the web.config file (mostly regarding connection strings), because we have 20 applications, and each one connects to at least four databases on 8 different servers depending on where the application is deployed. In our current projects, management of web.configs is a a true nightmare because of this (they actually had to write an app that does it for them - this approach will eliminate the need for that app).

I've temporarily inherited a pair of small dogs (a Jack Russel and a Pug cross) for two weeks while the owners are on holiday, and begun my introduction to dog ownership.
Cats are better.
A cat when presented with food will eat what it needs, and leave the rest for later. A dog on the other hand scarfs down everything it can see, throws it back up,and then eats it again.
When a cat goes for a walk, it decides where to go, and manages both to go on it's own and get back (probably to have a soupçon more breakfast.
Dogs, on the other hand have to be accompanied, while the walker is laden down with a Scammell Truck's worth of pooh bags.
And dogs can't just walk. Oh no! they have to stop every thirty damn seconds to check FaceBark, update Twigger, ... and the less said about PooTube the better ...
Actually no, let's talk about animals and PooTube. Cats are discrete about it - they dig a hole, do what they have to, bury it, and stroll away. Not so these two: hop along for a few dozen feet squeezing it out so you have to follow round picking up lumps over a distance. And if you miss one, the other dog will assume that it is an hors d'oeuvre ... So now you have a lead, two dogs, and a thin bag of smelly biohazard to cart about. And then the other one visits PooTube.
Why do you have them, folks? Cats are so much nicer.
