      Great stuff but I just don't get it why this guy tries so hard to be funny? Since, he's so annoying.
      Just stick to the topic since it's great itself and leave standup comedian stuff for the freetime.

      Would've liked to see the custom model binder stuff explained a bit better as that is a sore spot for me in MVC.  Also, LOVED the explanation of EditorFor and DisplayFor.  The EditorFor part though....would've loved to see the finished result of how to get the control's ID, etc etc.  Overall, a great followup to the basics talk.
      OH!  And....LOVED the Google it with Bing comment along with the jabs at the Windows Phone Series 7 (blah blah blah)  And Yes, I do believe that I used blah blah blah correctly there.  :)
      Thanks so much Scott!

      Good work.

      Great presentation.
      Had to chuckle when Scott said "Google it on Bing" Not sure whether that was deliberate but was quite ironic, because subtly it was advertising Google whilst trying to encourage Bing usage.
      But overall it covered lots of stuff and some great examples. Many thanks.
