PDC09: ASP.NET MVC 2: Ninjas Still on Fire Black Belt Tips
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.
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:
- On the basic side, you can use Mike Swanson's downloader batch file.
- Download CURL and put it in a folder.
- Download this Batch File and this Renamer Batch File and put everything in one folder
- There's about 96 gigs of WMV High videos, but the other formats are a lot smaller.
- For more features, Naeem Khedarun has a fancier PDC Video Downloader at his blog that includes many improvements over the original "Alternative PDC Downloader" from Frank's World. It has features like Resuming and Balloon Tips, and it runs in the Tray. As of the timing of this post the most recent version was v4 but check out his blog for the latest.
