Back on the blog.....

Ok so I have really been slacking lately, but hey with school and work things are really crazy. Its been a crazy week, I was able to present at Code Camp last Saturday. It was a great experience to present to such a large group. While at Code Camp I was able to talk to and meet many great people,D’Arcy Lussier, Chris Sutton, and Javier Lozano among others. It was amazing the discussions that we had there. My talk went off good and had some great people in the session that contributed to the discussion even teaching me a thing or two.

Later in the day I went to a couple different sessions about MVC and .NET. The first one was put on by Chris Sutton, it was a second part to the introduction of Microsoft's MVC Framework for ASP.NET it was very interesting and brought me closer to understanding .NET by actually being able to implement a web application in the style I like to use.

The second session I went to was put on by D’Arcy Lussier, this was a very informational session as D'Arcy skipped the powerpoint and code examples and led us in a round table discussion of .NET, MVC, and general web application theories. It was nice to hear that I'm not the only one that feels that the ASP.NET framework has brought about a mass amount of developers that don't understand statelessness.

Here is my code and slide deck from Code Camp
