Veracruz project is a community application created by netfxfactory.org.

This application is based on Microsoft technologies and lays the foundations to a social networking game describing imaginary towns where players elaborates plans to take over a domain. The game is more elaborated than the one developed for the first version and will be enriched iteratively.

The overall goal of this application is to become a reference application used to implement demonstration scenarios. This reference application is based on a simulated and vivid business context, this choice not only allows a degree of liberty in relation to the veracity of the use case. One can also personalize the solution context to fit its own requirements as Veracruz is able to be versatile even in the same business domain. By distorting the real business context from the application, it does not favor any particular audience, and any resemblance with real use cases can easily be exposed in an unbranded manner.

Scenarios
The scenario matrix is still under progress but here are a couple technical points that are or will be addressed by the Veracruz platform.

Claim your social identity

This scenario aims to demonstrate how to use Facebook as an identity provider and how to create custom claims out of Facebook information. The last part of the scenario is to "claim enable" Sharepoint using custom membership and role providers that understands claims.
