DotNetNuke & MVC
Earlier this week, Shaun Walker, DotNetNuke's Co-Founder and Chief Architect, caused a bit of a ruckus in the blogosphere/twitterverse with his blog post ASP.NET MVC and DotNetNuke. I think many disagreed with his representation of ASP.NET MVC, whether or not they agreed with the actual point of the blog post (to announce that DNN is not going to be ported to ASP.NET MVC). Unfortunately, much of the discussion became a little too heated, so I think we are all glad to be able to move on to more productive discussions now that the backlash has died down some. Charles Nurse has led the way forward for productive discussions by blogging about his recent work integrating an ASP.NET MVC application into a DNN site as a real DNN module. It's very exciting stuff, even with the list of known issues. Hopefully we can move forward on this front and allow both WebForms and MVC-style development within the DNN ecosystem, making it richer for its diversity.
Also, if you are interested in learning about MVC, TekPub's Rob Conery has donated coupons for their ASP.NET MVC series to DNN. All you need to do to get some free (excellent) training on ASP.NET MVC is to blog about DNN and leave a comment about it.
