Get Something Built

All project work goes through Katapult Media. Business is open. Let’s chat.


“ScottGU posted about the ASP.NET MVC Framework”:https://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/10/14/asp-net-mvc-framework.aspx and I have to say I’m highly interested in seeing this in action. I’m pretty busy at this second so I haven’t fully reviewed his post or watched the “video Scott Hanselmann blogged”:https://www.hanselman.com/blog/ScottGuMVCPresentationAndScottHaScreencastFromALTNETConference.aspx.

We’ll see how the framework is seen by the community. I, for one, am not big on web frameworks, other than “CodeIgniter”:https://www.codeigniter.com/ which flippin’ rocks, but Microsoft being behind/building one raises a strong eyebrow (in a good way).

What’re your thoughts on it?

azFPUG September Meeting: WebORB Preso


I’m excited about this meeting. I’ve been around the WebORB community for a while now but have yet to really get into it. This preso will help me take the first step(s) into the world of WebORB by seeing an end to end solution as presented by Mark Piller (the man over at Midnight Coders).

Hopefully you’ll come out or join us in the Connect room!
