Converting from Webforms view engine to Razor–Some Tips
Monday, June 6, 2011 9:16 AM
Recently, I have had to perform a lot of conversion in an MVC application from using the webforms view engine to the Razor view engine. I say “had to” but we didn’t really have to, more wanted to. We wanted the cleaner syntax that razor allows. Since we were going to embark on a bunch of new features involving new pages, we wanted to do this conversion earlier... Read More...

Entity Framework and the PreApplicationStartMethod attribute
Friday, May 6, 2011 2:09 PM
Recently, while implementing an EntityFramework data model into a new application, I thought I’d add some caching functionality early, to establish a framework going forward. I added the DBML (generated from a database), and added in my funky caching layer (which will be distributed as a Nuget package soon) that allows caching to be configurable switching between...

My Mix11 Proposal
Thursday, January 27, 2011 6:51 AM
I only submitted one session for consideration to present at Mix this year. Unfortunately it was not shortlisted and is consequently not open to voting currently on the site. However, I thought I might post it here to gain some feedback from others as to how I might refine or change it. Maybe it is just something people are not interested in and I have taken...

ScriptHelper–For MVC and WebForms projects
Thursday, November 18, 2010 4:38 PM
This issue might seem minor but I always forget the names (exact naming) or number of script files I need to get some features working in MVC or Webforms. In addition, in my applications that require a specific client side feature, I might need a series of dependent scripts to make it work. Failing to include all of them often gives ambiguous errors or the functionality... Read More...
ASP.NET MVC 3 and Custom Extensions
Sunday, August 8, 2010 3:03 PM
When playing with the latest ASP.NET MVC 3 Preview 1 bits, some people have mentioned their dislike of the . cshtml extension used for the “razor” view engine that comes with ASP.NET MVC 3 and also WebMatrix .

ASP.NET MVC and IE8 WebActivities

One of the great things in readify is the ability to do Professional Development at scheduled intervals to keep up to speed with the latest industry technologies and advancements.

Web Client Software Factory and Enterprise Library. I want to Opt-in, not Opt-out.
Monday, May 28, 2007 12:34 AM
I am a fan of the Web Client Software factory . Its a pretty good implementation of the MVP pattern within ASP.NET. Pretty lean and clean and doesn't involve lots of effort to get the simple stuff done, unlike a lot of other MVC based implementations/frameworks. One of the things I don't like about it is the automatic inclusion of the Enterprise Library pieces... Read More...
