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. ......

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 ......

Seems that when people come across frozen bridges, the first idea people get is to step on the brakes. WHY??? Anyhow, that's a rant for another day. The here and now focus is Visual Studio 2005 and 2008. With the projects I've been doing lately, I haven't had the luxury to completely switch over to Visual Studio 2008 just yet. There are a few things holding me back: BizTalk 2006 R2 integration ......

Lang.NET and Rolling Your Own

It's been one of those things I'd love to attend just to understand where Miguel de Icaza, Anders Hejlsberg, Luke Hoban, Jim Hugunin and others are going with their related languages. Lang.NET Stuff I followed Ted Neward's recaps as they were going on as to understand what all we were missing. He was good enough to provide ......
