PDC09 While I was at PDC last week in Los Angeles I got to present an ASP.NET MVC 2 presentation. Phil has been home playing with his new baby so I was thrilled to be able to give a presentation on his behalf. I gave the talk immediately after the Day 2 keynote a few minutes after they announced that they were giving all attendees custom laptops.

This talk was a (virtually) no slides, just demos talk. I showed some new ASP.NET MVC 2 features, some tips and techniques that aren't/weren't ASP.NET MVC 2 specific. I also mentioned some community projects that are doing some cool things in the ASP.NET MVC space like MVCContrib and MVCTurbine.

You can watch the HD version of the talk using Silverlight Smooth Streaming 1280x720 here or the non-HD version embedded below.

Get Microsoft Silverlight

You can download the talk in these formats:

There are a number of interesting one-off utilities for downloading all the PDC Videos in a particular format. Here's a few of note:

In my opinion, the best bet to download all the videos is to make a text file with all of the links on one line each, and saving it as .lst and then import it to GetRight :)

That's what I did after both Swanson's .bat-downloader and my home-cooked WebClient-based downloader kept failing because of the lack of resume support.

"I don't even have a dependency on my dependency injection container"

That was awesome :)

But I will not be embarrassed on stage again.
