Jeffrey Palermo announced that he's set up an open source project for creating a web application based on the ASP.NET MVC framework for user groups to manage their code camps with! This is a great opportunity to work with other developers who are actively using the MVC framework and get some great exposure to tools like Cruise Control, NUnit, and using "stories" to identify features Check out Jeff's blog post here for more information. D ...
Few hours ago, Michael Schwarz, the creator of AJAX.NET Professional (A.KA. AJAXPro), the most successful AJAX framework for ASP.NET after Microsoft's ASP.NET AJAX Framework (A.K.A., ATLAS) has stated that he'll no longer be working on the project. Furthermore, he even recommended users to move to Microsoft's AJAX Framework instead!! The reasons Michael mentioned why he will stop the project used by 13.3% of ASP.NET developers doing AJAX work include the fact that ASP.NET AJAX is part of ASP.NET ...

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: ...
After two days of learning and understanding the new Microsoft ASP.NET MVC technology, I was very interested in use its cappabilities in some new sites. I wanted to implement simple Web Sites (no Applications), but this release does not include templates for sites, only apps. Taking a look of some blog posts from Jason, I found a excellent template for sites with Visual Web Developer 2008 . This helped me with that I needed at that time, but I also like the missing templates for items that we use ...
Last Tuesday night witnessed a relatively new kind event held in Microsoft Egypt building @ smart village. It was said to be "announcing dotNETwork user group" which I thought was some Microsoft Egypt initiative for a new offline user group model of developer community. I was so excited about so, and it was even better! The Idea The dotNETwork group is just am offline user group that's done right. It just happened to have Microsoft Egypt host the group gathering, as this is the hardest issue to maintain. ...
Few days back ASP.NET MVC Framework was released. Since, the framework is new there are not many UI controls available yet! But off course this is all going to change. Actually this has already started to change since Rob Conery created the MVC UI Helper Controls. Scott Hanselman used some of Rob's cool controls in his demo. The purpose of the UI helper controls is to help the developer to quickly create UI controls. So, instead of using the foreach loop to populate a DropDownList you can use the ...
I saw Scott Hanselman screencast on ASP.NET MVC Framework. After watching the video I realized that this MVC framework is pretty much like classic ASP or atleast have some similarities. Check out the code below where I have populated a DropDownList (HTML Select Tag): <select> <% foreach (var category in ViewData) { %> <option id="ddlCategories" value = "<%= category.id %>"> <%= category.CategoryName %> </option> <% } %> </select> The controller was ...

Benefits include the ability to achieve and maintain a clear separation of concerns, as well as facilitate test driven development (TDD). The ...
Today, the ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions were released. You can now download them here. Now people can have the opportunity to do a tech preview on a lot of cool things coming to ASP.NET including of course MVC. Scott Guthrie and Scott Hanselman also mention this on their blogs. Scott Hanselman also has a 40 minute "How To" video worth watching as well. Here is what is included in the extensions download: ASP.NET MVC ASP.NET MVC provides model-view-controller (MVC) support to the existing ASP.NET 3.5 runtime, ...

The community technology preview of MVC (Model-View-Control) extensions for ASP.NET is now available for download from: http://www.microsoft.com/do...

Update 12/7 - Looks to be delayed til next week... In two previous posts, I have followed the ASP.NET MVC pattern quite intensely as TDD with Web Projects is something I'm always interested in. Anyhow, Scott Guthrie aka (ScottGu) posted the third part in his series on ASP.NET MVC. This one covers passing ViewData from controllers to views, and more specifically cover ways you can pass data from a Controller to a View in order to render a response back to a client. This covers two scenarios of passing ...

If you haven't been living under a mushroom, you're most likely aware of Scott Guthrie's posts on Microsoft's new ASP.NET MVC Framework. If you are indeed living under a mushroom, then you can check out Part 3 right here.

In a previous post, I covered a lot of the early happenings within the ASP.NET MVC Framework. Since Scott Guthrie started blogging about ASP.NET MVC, there have been follow-on articles. Here are the latest information about ASP.NET MVC: ASP.NET MVC Framework Part 2 (URL Routing) in which Scott Guthrie drills down deep into the built-in capabilities of the URL routing within ASP.NET MVC. For those chomping at the bit to get this code, this is another great post in the series. An Architectural View ...
Yesterday I referred to Scott Guthrie's post about the roadmap for coming .NET web related products, highlighting Silverlight 2.0 and ASP.NET MVC framework especially. Now, Mohamed Tayseer (my current team mate and complement in development!) sent me link to a detailed post by Roger Jennings, with many discussions and references related to these products. A must read for anyone who read the previous post. Read the post ...
Yeah, finally the long awaited preview of ASP.NET MVC Framework will be available, Yeah, I'm tired like you all of seeing so many sample codes without a way to touch them or try other things out. Also Silverlight 1.1 will keep on evolving and now has the versionning it deserves, Silverlight 2.0, which is not just a name of course, but comes with broader support of WPF and rich controls and many other features. These are only few of many super interesting announcements that Scott Guthrie [MSFT] posted ...
Last month, Scott Guthrie announced the ASP.NET MVC framework which allows for built-in support for the Model View Controller based architecture. Since that time there has been a flurry of activity from Microsoft to demo the technology to the world and make demos readily available. In case you missed it, here are some of the features: Clean separation of concerns. All core contracts of the MVC framework are testable and mockable Highly pluggable to use NHibernate, Spring.NET, Windsor, and other great ...
There have been plenty of posts about the new asp.net MVC framework that was posted from the alt.net conference. There's very little that I can add to those posts other than I am really excited. Right after that Scott Hanselman (the link to the video is in this link) did a demo of possible ways the MVC could be used to along with the Dynamic Language Runtime. Not only is the MVC code in prototype, but Scott really only had a couple days to show how you could use the DLR with it, so obviously what ...
