MSDN Unplugged - The Unnamed Package of Web Love
I previously posted the links to all the demos that I gave during my unplugged talk around New Zealand last week.
As promised I will now post the videos and walk trough for the rest of the content.
Below is the PowerPoint presentation and demo script that I followed to step through the MVC3 Fundamentals demo.
As mentioned previously the WebCamps.ms site contains more demos, labs and source code.
I also talked about the Free Windows Azure trial until June 30th including 750 hours per month of Extra Small Compute Instance and 1G Web Edition SQL Azure database. I also showed how to publish an ASP.NET MVC 3 App to Windows Azure.
I then demonstrated how to Install and Publish an Orchard site using WebMatrix, I showed a list of hosters that support WebMatrix and ASP.NET 4 today. And demonstrated a https://nigel.akl.co.nz – WebMatrix, MVC 3 + SQL Server hosted at https://thecloud.net.nz who are planning to offer shared hosting in NZ via WebMatrix in the coming weeks.
and finally I provided a comprehensive overview of HTML5 Video (video below and online) and demonstrated how to include it in your own web applications.
