I haven't been for a while and this meet was fully packed which was good to see. There were a couple of presentations tonight ... ASP.NET MVC and SOAK.
Architectural Considerations for the ASP.NET MVC Framework - Tatham Oddie
This was a shortened version of the presentation he gave at the Melbourne REMIX 08 ... so a remix of the remix?? Anyways, he talked about the slight improvements in ASP.NET MVC Preview 3 and using Inversion of Control Containers, Dependency Injection pattern implemented by Castle.Windsor project (IWindsorContainer) and the MVC Contrib project. I haven't yet played around with the ASP.NET MVC stuff but it's another area I'd like to get my teeth stuck into.
