Let's be frank...Most of us developers have it pretty good. We happen to have hung our hats on an industry that has plenty of work, even in the midst of a protracted recession. (Okay, this might not be true for every developer but as a general rule, employment for software professionals is better than many other sectors. If you are currently unemployed, I wish you the best in locating a job.)
I will be presenting three sessions at Microsoft ASP.NET Connections, one of the conferences that is part of DevConnections. Two of my talks are especially targeted at ASP.NET Web Forms developers who are in the process of learning or coming up to speed with ASP.NET MVC.
Steve Sanderson's MVC Scaffolding NuGet package is awesome and goes far beyond the very good scaffolding available from the Add Controller dialog in Visual Studio 2010 (after installing the MVC 3 Tools Update).
