ASP.NET MVC 2 and Visual Studio 2010 previewed in London
When I heard that Scott Guthrie was coming to London to do a talk on ASP.NET MVC 2 and Visual Studio 2010, I knew I had to be there. This is the future of development on Microsoft's web platform!
Guthrie introduces himself as a guy who "builds a few products for Microsoft" to quote his blog. His official title is "Corporate Vice President of Microsoft's .NET Developer Platform" (i.e. worldwide head of .NET dev products).
Guthrie delivered two really useful talks:
- A preview of the next version of the rapid web development framework, ASP.NET MVC 2.0.
- A preview of the next version of the awesome IDE, VS 2010.
This is very much my kind of presentation! It was 99% live on-screen coding demos -- very simple but very practical, showing off some extremely powerful feaures that we can all look forward to using. Followed by beer and a chance to watch Scott being interrogated late into the evening by developers and fans.
Everybody can take home a goodie-bag from this event. All assets from Scott Guthrie's talk in London, on 30 October 2009, are available below. Full credit to Scott for emailing me these personally so quickly after I sent an email begging for them.
I'll be adding to this blog post later with a list of highlights from the talk.
All assets from the event
- Slides from the demo of ASP.NET MVC 2
- Code from the demo of ASP.NET MVC 2.0 (this is the text file Scott copied and pasted from during the demos)
- Slides from the demo of VS2010
Scott's own web pages, with videos, for the two topics presented
It's now possible to download ASP.NET MVC Preview 2.
