Video: Building great standards based websites for the big wide world with ASP.NET 4.0

The video recording from Damian and my session at REMIX Sydney last week is now online. Thanks to some funky aspect ratio issues we both look really buff too.

In this session, two ASP.NET MVPs will share their experiences from building Australia’s largest e-commerce site with ASP.NET Web Forms. They’ll show you how to be a good web citizen by covering standards compliance (properly!), cross browser and accessibility considerations, non-JavaScript support, as well as coding techniques like the Model-View-Presenter pattern to improve maintainability and testing. Along the way, there’ll be plenty of discussion of the differences between Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC in each area, as well as an early peek at some of the new features coming in ASP.NET 4.0 and VS 2010.

The resources from our talk are now all online (including the ones that hadn’t been released yet on the day):

We also talked about the CSS Friendly Control Adapters which are again open source, under MS-PL.

While you’re checking out the videos, take a look at Jordan’s rockin’ Silverlight 3 Super Session. Not all of the videos are up yet (like, most of them aren’t), and I imagine that from the feedback flowing in there might be an updated version of the videos soon, so keep watching the videos page for some other really good content.

Updated @ 1601, 18th June: The video page interface has been updated to support deep linking so I’ve update this post to include links to the in-page players.

Updated @ 1053, 20th June: Added links to resources now that they’re all been published.

  1. Great video… picked up lots of tips on moving to XHTML 1.1 compliance and various Visual Studio and ASP.NET tips along the way.
