PDC 08 - *The* Best MVC Presentation *EV-AR*

Monday, October 27, 2008 7:40 PM


I checked out Phil Haack’s MVC presentation this afternoon, and I’ve gotta say that Phil did a phenomenal job communicating the story behind the product. From establishing why the framework was created, how it fits in the ASP.NET strategy going forward, and explaining the how’s and why’s to an audience that more than likely was comprised of webform devs.

Phil did a great example app as well, mimicking stackoverflow.com and providing a great real world example. However, as a great follow up, Jeff Atwood was brought up on stage to talk about stackoverflow.com, which is *actually* written in ASP.NET MVC Framework! He even logged in to the production server to show us the activity, and provided stats on hits (almost 350000 per day, and MVC handles it!).

One other thing I thought was kewl with Phil’s demo was that he incorporated Entity Framework into it…nothing in depth on it as it wasn’t the main technology, but it was still nice to see how it actually is used in a project.

But instead of me going on and on about it, you should see it for yourself. All PDC content will be available within 24 hours on the PDC website. Go get the presentation and watch it and let me know if you came away with the same opinion that I did.

I already know that no matter how good this was, it is not the *best* MVC presentation ever. Sorry bud! =) 10/27/2008 9:08 PM | Justice~!

Two ASP.NET posts in one day? I thought you were off the Web crack? 10/27/2008 9:31 PM | Kent Sharkey

Thanks D'Arcy! I hope you submitted an eval with that praise. ;)

@Justice I think he meant, best "ASP.NET MVC" presentation evar, not "MVC". ;) But still, probably a bit overboard. How about, "BEST ASP.NET MVC PRESENTATION AT PDC2008!!!!" W00t! 10/28/2008 2:13 PM | Haacked
