RockNUG IoC Container Presentation Wrapup
I want to thank the fine folks at the Rockville .NET Users Group (RockNUG) and Dean Fiala for giving me the opportunity to speak last night. It was a record crowd last night, so I'm glad that people were interested in Loose Coupling, Design Patterns, Test Driven Development, Behavior Driven Development and Inversion of Control containers. I hope everyone got some good information, and if not interested in using containers, design patterns and such, at least know they exist and have their use. Based ......

ASP.NET MVC Source Code Now Available
As of yesterday, the ASP.NET MVC Release 2 source code has been made available on CodePlex. ScottGu made the source drop announcement earlier this morning. Congrats to Phil Haack and the ASP.NET MVC Team for shipping the source code. It's worth noting, it's not Open Source in the way that it's just a zip file and no outside patches are to be accepted, unlike IronRuby. The plan going forward is to make incremental drops of the source code going forward. As always, check out Jeffrey Palermo's MVCContrib ......

Videos and Interviews from MIX08
Well, I've had the urge to find all the videos I could and watch them to find out all the goodies I missed while not at MIX08. If you missed any of the main sessions, you can find out more about them here. Note that there are 88 sessions recorded here, so it's a lot of good viewing material. Best of all are Scott Hanselman's MVC Videos can be seen here. He also covers the MVC Mock Helpers which better allow for unit tests using various Mock frameworks including Rhino Mocks, TypeMock.NET and Moq. ......

ASP.NET 2.0 Custom Membership Providers
Last week, I was studying for 70-528 TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Web-Based Client Development at the local study group, I came across the out of the box Membership Providers. Currently, there are two Membership Providers out of the box with ASP.NET 2.0, the SqlMemberProvider and the ActiveDirectoryMembership Provider. On the MSDN, Microsoft has released the Provider Toolkit for ASP.NET 2.0. As we dig further, we see there is a link for Membership Providers which has an example of how to create ......

RockNUG Meeting - ASP.NET MVC + Updates
Tonight, put on the DVR and come out to the Rockville .NET Users Group (RockNUG) for a presentation by Jeff Schoolcraft on ASP.NET MVC. The timing of course couldn't be more appropriate as ScottGu has recently posted about the ASP.NET MVC Framework Update in which he talks about a few pain points I know I've been having as well as others such as: Can be deployed in partial trust in the \bin directory Improved routing features and infrastructure Test wizard now supports and probably one of my favorite ......

Grokking the Model View Presenter (MVP) Variations
For many of my current ASP.NET projects, I've been using the Model View Presenter (MVP) for this. However, there are many ways to implement this and if you ask someone, you'll likely get a differing opinion each and every time. Such as the case with the Model View Presenter. I've covered this before, but in the context of SharePoint, so now I'm just going to stick with ASP.NET and the concepts itself. The Model View Presenter Martin Fowler came up with the concept for the Model View Presenter back ......

ASP.NET Extensions and MVC Code Samples
As noted in some of my previous posts, there is a lot of excitement around the ASP.NET 3.5 extensions including MVC, Dynamic Data, Silverlight and so on. I have a few samples I'll be posting within the week using ASP.NET MVC with such things as Spring.NET, Castle Windsor, Object Builder and so on. In the mean time, I'm still working on the Spec# posts and some SharePoint Model View Presenter I hope to get out soon. Anyhow, there are some great links out there for doing cool stuff with ASP.NET MVC: ......
