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...

12 ASP.NET MVC Best Practices

Last week I held two presentations about ASP.NET MVC for the new-born DotNetRomaCeStà user group in Rome. And one of them was about what I consider to be ASP.NET MVC Best Practices. The presentation was in Italian so I decided to translate my slide in English so that everybody can read them. Controller’s best practices 1 – Delete the AccountController You will never use it and it’s a super-bad practice to keep demo code in your applications. 2 – Isolate Controllers from the outside World Dependencies on the HttpContext, on data access classes, configuration, logging,...

Reminder: my talk at DotNetUmbria

Just a quick reminder, tomorrow afternoon I’ll be talking about ASP.NET MVC at the local DotNetUmbria usergroup. Today I spent the whole day putting the finishing touches on tomorrow’s talks and demos. I’ll talk from 3PM to 6PM (or till when people ask for mercy). I’ve two talks planned: Introduction to ASP.NET MVC, my “usual” introductory presentation, update with the RTM bits and yesterday’s big announcement ASP.NET MVC, so what? This was originally planned to be a “live refactoring” of an old WebForm application to ASP.NET MVC, but I changed it...

I’ll speak for 3 hours (and probably more) about ASP.NET MVC and the new features that the .NET 3.5 SP1 brings to the table. There will be 2 sessions: Life after SP1: I’ll talk about Dynamic Data, Routing, the new...
