New ASP.NET MVC Videos and Tutorials - Stephen Walther on ASP.NET MVC

New ASP.NET MVC Videos and Tutorials

15 new ASP.NET MVC videos were just published at the http://www.ASP.net/mvc website. The first 10 videos are basic tutorials on the ASP.NET MVC framework. If you haven’t had a chance to play with ASP.NET MVC yet, these tutorials are a great introduction.

The second set of 5 videos is part of an ongoing video series: ASP.NET MVC Pair Programming. In these videos, I pair with a prominent community expert to build an entire ASP.NET MVC application from start to finish (because of time constraints – a very, very simple application). The goal is to emphasize the process of building a web application instead of the product.

Because ASP.NET MVC is such a great framework for doing Test-Driven Development, in the first set of these videos, I pair with Charlie Poole – Mr. Test-Driven Development himself. Charlie Poole is the primary developer behind NUnit (http://NUnit.org) which is the most popular unit testing framework for the .NET framework. In this first set of Pair Programming videos, we build a Blog application using good test-driven development practices.

Let me know what you think of the videos. How can I help you learn MVC? I want your feedback on what topics you want covered in future videos.

I did a quick run through them. Really nice job!

One question though? What's with the water sound in the background ?

Is it to set the mood? Or am I hearing wrong :-/

This is great.  I think the community needs more "real-life" examples of the actual development process.  The plumbing of MVC can be studied and applied from books and blogs, but its hard to capture t he process in those.

For a lot of folks, TDD is a new concept and its hard to get started - especially when it comes to writing that first test, refactoring etc.  Keep it up!

@lazar - Yes, it does sound like water (or possibly an alien spacecraft landing)
