From WebForms to MVC

7/14/2008 12:26:51 PM

Tim Barcz posted today about how he and his team will be transitioning from an ASP.NET 1.1 app to ASP.NET MVC.  Tim plans on posting how it goes, problems, tips, etc.  I'm really excited about the opportunity to "watch over his shoulder" as Tim gets to work on the transition.  There hasn't been much said out there about actually making this kind of transition.  Quite a bit about why you might want to make the transition (and Tim covers some of that in his post) but not much about real world "how I got here from there" information.  I'll keep my fingers crossed that Tim will have the time to post often and in detail about how things are going.

Spaghetti Code Podcast - Javier Lozano on Ruby, RoR and ASP.NET MVC

5/27/2008 8:32:24 AM

I had a chance to sit down with ASP.NET MVP and long time friend Javier Lozano to talk about his investigations into Ruby, RoR and ASP.NET MVC.  Javier is huge part of the local Des Moines and greater Midwest developer community and is a lot of fun to talk to.  I was able to catch up with him during a recent visit to the Iowa .NET User Group and record this podcast.

Congrats to Robert Boedigheimer - New Microsoft ASP.NET MVP!

4/7/2008 2:32:00 PM

Robert has been an ASP.NET and .NET guru in Minnesota for a long time.  He has spoke at conferences all over the country and has participated in community stuff in the Twin Cities whenever we can drag him up here. ;-)  I happy to say that the folks out in Redmond have finally recognized the great work that Robert has been doing and have now made him an ASP.NET MVP!  Way to go Robert.  You can check out Robert's blog here.



A Ton of News on the ASP.NET and Silverlight Fronts

11/30/2007 5:15:00 PM

Ok, I am probably a day behind the rest of the Microsoft world in posting something on this, but I was traveling most of yesterday so I have a partial excuse.

First, make sure to check out ScottGu's blog post for the definitive details on my short summary...

- Silverlight 1.1 is not going to be called Silverlight 2.0:  That makes complete sense.  Silverlight 1.1, errrr 2.0, is a huge upgrade in functionality over what we have today with Silverlight 1.0.  A much more extensive control set (ok, you will actually have controls, let's be honest), the CLR on multiple platforms, and better performance all make it a significant upgrade.  The first beta should be out in the first quarter of 2008 along with a limited "Go Live" license so stay tuned on that.  Tim Sneath has a pretty good write up on Silverlight 2.0.

- ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions Release: There will be an extension release for ASP.NET next year with a preview of that release coming next week.  Things to be in that release include the new ASP.NET MVC framework, some AJAX improvements, Silverlight support, ADO.NET Data Services (Entity Framework and Astoria), and a couple of other nuggets.

bb499684_StockTrader(en-us,MSDN_10) An End-to-End Sample Application Illustrating Windows Communication Foundation and .NET Enterprise Technologies

This application is an end-to-end sample application for .NET Enterprise Application Server technologies. It is a service-oriented application based on Windows Communication Foundation (.NET 3.0) and ASP.NET, and illustrates many of the .NET enterprise development technologies for building highly scalable, rich "enterprise-connected" applications. It is designed as a benchmark kit to illustrate alternative technologies within .NET and their relative performance.

The application offers full interoperability with J2EE and IBM WebSphere's Trade 6.1 sample application. As such, the application offers an excellent opportunity for developers to learn about .NET and building interoperable, service-oriented applications.
