The evolution of asynchronous controllers in ASP.NET MVC

Asynchronous operations in ASP.NET MVC have always been left a bit behind. They appeared in ASP.NET MVC 2, remained untouched in v3, but now in MVC 4 (especially  in combination with C# 5 and async/await) they reached the same easiness of use of the standard synchronous controller. Now (or better, in a few months with the release of ASP.NET MVC 4, .NET 4.5 and C# 5) you can write public async Task<ViewResult> Stuff() { return View(await DoStuff("Some stuff")); } In this post I’m going to show how the code...

Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1 is now available as a DRM-free PDF ebook

Since the current version of ASP.NET MVC is version 3 you might wonder why I am still promoting my Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1.0 book. The reason is that since a few week it is also available as DRM-free eBook at a discounted price directly from the Wrox site (together with many other books from Wrox). For the moment you have to enter the code FROST to get a 35% reduction on the standard price, but soon the prices on the site will be updated to reflect the reduced price. After you buy the MVC 1.0 book, you might also want to buy...

Ruby on Rails vs ASP.NET MVC slides, demos and video are online

During last Saturday’s UGIALT.Net Conference in Milano I shared a talk together with Italian RoR expert Sandro Paganotti: “RoR vs ASP.NET MVC”. We had 20 minutes each to build a super easy conference registration page and also explaining to the audience what we were doing. The goal of the talk was not to choose the best platform or the most productive one, but to show the steps needed to setup and create a simple but fully functional web application. It was a very nice experience and I think it showed how similar the the web frameworks are. To...

At the Umbraco CodeGarden: Slides and Demos of my MVC-Preconf talks

I'm here in Copenhagen at the 6th Umbraco CodeGarden "festival" and currently chilling in the nice garden while resting between the talks of the fist day. First of all I want to say "THANK YOU!!" to Niels Hartvig for inviting me to talk to the event, and for setting up what I think is the best conference I attended ever. No, no... I'm not just sucking up... this event is really great: great food, great community, great amusements, a great channel tour and side activities... as they said at the keynote: it's more of a festival rather then a normal developer...

Speaking about ASP.NET MVC Extensibility at the Umbraco CodeGarden10

Next week I’ll be speaking about ASP.NET MVC Extensibility at the MVC pre-conference during annual Umbraco CodeGarden conference in Copenhagen starting next June 23rd. The presentation will be split in the two parts (just before and just after lunch) and it will cover the most of the main extensibility points of ASP.NET MVC which I covered in my most popular post: 13 ASP.NET MVC extensibility points you have to know. And I will also talk about the new extensibility points introduced in ASP.NET MVC 2, like Validation Rules and custom templates (which I covered in my Wrox Blox about ASP.NET MVC...
