ASP.NET MVC Beginner’s Guide

In ASP.NET MVC on March 17, 2009 at 14:19

I’ve decided to take Microsoft’s brand new ASP.NET MVC framework for a small test drive by building a small proof of concept application with it. The frame work sure looks promising, even despite it’s early stage of development and relatively small features as compared to ASP.NET web forms.

It seems there are no good books available on the subject yet. The few that are already in stock at Amazon are based on the community preview, and it seems that there have been quite a few changes in the the framework since then.

Fortunately, ScottGu hat just released a free sample chapter of his upcoming “Professional ASP.NET” (Wrox) book. It contains a 200-page walkthrough guide on how to build a simple ASP.NET MVC application.

The chapter is available for download here.

Mike Dulin has just published an interview we recorded at last year’s European Shareware Conference. We talked a bit about shareware games vs. casual games, how I got into the games business and the current market climate in both areas. The Interview is available here.
