2.0-routes-viewMy two-hundred-and-tenth podcast is up. Sedentary Scott chats with Fit John Lam about the science of fitness. If you're a coder you you use huge amounts of data and statistics to plan your next move, why not do the same when working out? John talks about the software and hardware folks use to measure not just where they ran and how far, but also their Watts per Kilo of body weight! Does this geek need data to get fit?

Pretty interesting software, but. I still prefer TrainingPeaks even if it is a Flex app.

Scott, I have a question about the process of building NerdDinner in MVC as described in your book Professional ASP.NET MVC 1.0, and I'm using VS2010. The question has to do with the process of generating the model classes for the Dinner and RSVP tables. When the book and I come to the point of dragging the two database tables to the NerdDinner.dbml design surface, the book describes the process (echoed by the design surface's instructions) as dragging the tables from the server explorer to the surface. When I do this, the relationship between the Dinner and RSVP table (that view with their relationship) is created as the book describes, but no actual classes are generated by this action (at least I don't see the code for the classes in the Model folder or anywhere else). When I look a little more closely at the Solution Explorer view in the book (as it appears when describing the creation of the DinnerRepository class), I don't see Dinner or RSVP model classes there either -- so this appears to be what is expected. Despite the absence of the code, following the procedure described for building the DinnerRepository class, however, Intellisense picks up on the Dinner and RSVP classes and uses them as expected.

I'm just kind of confused as to why no class code appears for the two tables. Can you explain this?

Open up the DBML file tree in the Solution Explorer, the generated classes are in there. Feel free to move this conversation over to the nerddinner codeplex site as well.
