I had a great time at Code Camp. I was able to attend some awesome sessions where I learned a lot. Also, it was great meeting, and hanging out with, developers and techies from all over Southern California.
I presented two talks on ASP.NET MVC. Here are the Powerpoint slides and code samples.
I included a few useful links in the resources section (Tutorials, best practices, etc) and the links to download asp.net mvc.
In the upcoming weeks I’m going to be adding a series of posts relating to ASP.NET MVC so keep an eye out on my blog. Some of the topics I plan to cover are :
- Testing an ASP.NET MVC project using NUnit and approval tests
- Consuming an RSS Feed with ASP.NET MVC
- Using CKEditor in an ASP.NET MVC application
