Announcing Pro ASP.NET MVC Framework (Apress)

imageI’m very excited to say that I’m working on an ASP.NET MVC book for Apress!

Published May 19, 2008

There’s such a buzz around the as-yet-unreleased MVC framework – you can hardly move for blog posts, screen casts, sample applications, etc. – but when this thing finally gets released, many developers will benefit from a single, coherent, up-to-date treatment of the entire subject.

My target audience is C# developers with some ASP.NET knowledge, so if you’re in this group, you will (hopefully) find this book contains the right blend of theory, tutorials, and reference material to make you productive, fast. As well as covering the MVC framework in depth, and building a meaty e-commerce application from scratch, you’ll also learn about the relevant architectures, design patterns, open-source tools, and automated testing techniques. Not to mention security issues, deployment guides, and so on…

This hasn’t been a tightly-guarded secret: the book has been available for pre-order on Amazon* for weeks already. If you have any comments or suggestions for things you’d like to see in the book, please email me or leave a comment here.

* At the time of writing this post, not everything on Amazon’s page is entirely accurate and up-to-date – some of the book’s contents are still subject to change.

Model-based Client-side Validation for ASP.NET MVC

For quite a while, I was unsure how to go about doing validation in ASP.NET MVC. By default, it’s incompatible with the ASP.NET **** server controls, so this gives us an opportunity to come up with something newer and better.
