Scott Guthrie, Scott Hanselman, et. al., released the first chapter of their ASP.NET MVC 1.0 book as a free PDF file. It contains a 185-page tutorial on the soup-to-nuts of www.nerddinner.com, an ASP.NET MVC application.
It’s cool to see what they’ve done with the site. Back when I was a Developer Evangelist I created NerdDinner.com, using .TEXT (Community Server). I set up blogs for nerds in each of the cities that wanted to promote their eating habits. At the high water mark there were about 40 blogs on the site devoted to geeking out while eating bad mall food.
When I switched jobs and moved to Tampa I let the NerdDinner.com domain registration expire. It’s good to see that the new owners have taken good care of it. The site is way more spiffy than it ever was, with integration to Virtual Earth.
Check out ScottGu’s blog for the details about the book and tutorial.
As always, be there and be square.
