FOLLOW UP: Developer Dinner on ASP.NET MVC
UPDATE: I had technical difficulties with the recording yesterday. Therefore, we were unable to record the dinner. However, I do plan on recording both last night’s presentation and the 3.5 SP1 presentation from the last dinner. I hope to have them recorded and published some time soon. Stay tuned.
Thanks to everyone who attended! You can download the deck and links to the code here:
You’ll find the code for my ajax samples and links to other samples I showed there. Normally, I write my own demos and make code code available for download. However, this time around, most of my demo code was based on the .NET 3.5 Enhancements Training Kit. I blogged about the kit here:
The kit has just about everything I showed in my demos and more! I did make some updates to the training kit code to reflect ASP.NET MVC preview 5 and my own coding preferences. However, I need to check with the team that built the training kit before I can share the code.
I am also keeping a running list of ASP.NET MVC sites/blogs I follow:
Although it is already in the list linked to above, I want to call out Stephen Walther’s blog. If you have a “How do I..” kind of question, chances are Stephen answers it on his blog.
During the presentation, I called out a few specific urls:
ScottGu on ASP.NET MVC Preview 5 (validation is discussed here)
Web Client Software Factory (WCSF) Testability Guidance (for those of who want to stick with WebForms)
Here’s a description of the MVC Storefront from the http://www.asp.net/mvc site:
“The MVC Storefront project documents the building of an Ecommerce application using ASP.NET MVC and Test-driven development. The goal of this starter kit is to introduce the development process of a large-scale application that goes beyond the typical demo or sample application and to create something applicable and reusable in a very open, transparent way.
Rob Conery has documented the development process on his blog and created a video series for many of the development steps. During the process Rob has solicited feedback from members of the community and also held design sessions with prominent Microsoft MVPs. The Project is ongoing and will update with each change in the MVC Framework.”
Tonight’s dinner in Reston, Va will be recorded. I will try to make the recording available by Friday.
