ASP.NET MVC Presentation

Here’s my presentation on ASP.NET MVC from last night’s user group meeting!

One of the neatest things I was able to show the group was Microsoft’s Oxite project. From the site…

This is a simple blog engine written using ASP.NET MVC, and is designed with two main goals:

  1. To provide a sample of ‘core blog functionality’ in a reusable fashion. Blogs are simple and well understood by many developers, but the set of basic functions that a blog needs to implement (trackbacks, rss, comments, etc.) are fairly complex. Hopefully this code helps.
  2. To provide a real-world sample written using ASP.NET MVC.

We aren’t a sample-building team (more on what we are in a bit). We couldn’t sit down and build this code base just to give out to folks, so this code is also the foundation of a real project of ours, MIX Online. We also created this project to be the base of our own personal blogs as well so you’ll probably see our blogs on the list of sites running Oxite soon.

This is a very cool example of MVC, and it’s even been battle tested already running the MIX website!
