As a follow up to http://www.mrgn.co/2013/10/sdl-tridion-events-system-sample/ I have added another sample project type for the SDL Tridion Core Service.
A very bare-bones intro to SDL Tridion Core Service
It will also give me an easy place to find my Core Service starter, directly in Visual Studio
I will probably update it to be a Visual Studio project template. If/when I do I will update this post.
