Scott Hanselman – ASP.NET MVC
Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2
ASP.NET MVC does not dictate which database is used for Models, so new projects open with an empty Models folder.
URL structure is a user interface. ASP.NET MVC sets up predictable urls by default – a structured convention.
MVC built on top of web forms ASP.NET > MVC > Web Forms. MVC programmers can use all the existing stuff, but there’s like a new vehicle – webforms is like a minivan, but MVC is like a motorcycle – you could kill yourself, but you can go a lot faster.
Pluggable view engines.
Shows haml – which uses indentation and significant white space to make code cleaner.
Now shipping jquery in ASP.NET and MVC – MS contributing to the open source project.
By default C# code is compiled but views are not.
