An Overview of the MS Web Stack of Love

1 hour, 2 minutes, 27 seconds

Slides (view online)

Oh yes. Building web applications on the Microsoft stack continues to evolve. There’s lots of great tools to leverage, but it can be difficult to keep up with all the options. In this technical and fast-paced session, you’ll learn from Scott Hanselman how the pieces fit together. We’ll look at ASP.NET MVC 3, MvcScaffolding, Entity Framework Code First (Magic Unicorn Edition), SQL Compact 4, jQuery and more. We’ll also see how many times Scott can say “unobtrusive” in a single talk. You’ll leave this session with a clear understanding of the technology options available on the Microsoft Web Stack. What’s changed since PDC? What direction are we doing? Let’s see what we can build in a PowerPoint-free hour with the Microsoft Web Stack of Love.

    This was an awesome presentation.  Hanselman was hilarious & gave a great overview of IIS Express, MVC3 and some EF + MvcScaffolding.

    I really hope it will be online soon -- if only for the humor.

    Thanks, it was the most fun I've had all year.

    Oh, and by the way, you can learn about the tool I demoed, "Glimpse" at http://getglimpse.com.

  • GeorgeGeorge

    Your presentation is AWESOME!!!!

    You are by far the best presenter (at least in Microsoft)! ;)

  • Super Cool demo.

  • JohnJohn

    Yes, share the Love! I was having a really crappy day at the office, this talk made my day.

  • Amazing presentation on the web stack. Definitely my favorite MIX 11 video .... oh wait, I haven't seem Miguel De Icaza's yet Smiley

  • Jonas WikstromJonas Wikstrom

    Thanks Scott for the best session on the Mix...

  • BrendanBrendan

    Love it when Scott gets on a roll in his talks.. Had me in stitches!

  • DawidDawid

    While watching this presentation I was thinking what kind of drug are you taking and that I want it so badly as well, great job, it was "the awesomest" talk I've seen in a long time :-)

  • DanDan

    Where is the downloadable High Qualitity Video ?

  • Bart CzernickiBart Czernicki

    Great job...

    Always learn cool tricks from your presentation. I can't believe how easy it is to install and auto-get ELMAH to run in your app with NuGet.

    Scotty, you are great my man. Funny, knowledgeable, and the best part, you introduced me to MVC for the first time and I love it (nerddinner)! Thanks for all you do!

  • Scott - Awesome session.  I was in a focus group on "Why I chose to attend MIX".  I was thinking at the time "Because of Scott's sessions" as I could hear the laughter through the wall.

  • Breno FerreiraBreno Ferreira

    Congrats Scott!!! This was really one of the most awesome presentations ever! Great job Scott and all of the guys on the Web Plataform Team!

  • antonyantony

    i try in both [IE and chrome] and found that quality is not better. i really can't see what you done in your visual studio. can you say any good way to watch it clearly

  • Awesome!!!!

    Was there any link to demo projects, or codes available to download?


  • Bart CzernickiBart Czernicki

    This was a great session, plus with the "enable SSL" checkbox demo that was probably the funniest tech demo I have seen ever.

  • Scott HanselmanScott Hanselman

    Antony - sounds like a slow connection. Download the high quality offline?

  • Fun to watch... Nice one ScottHa

  • Really great demo. The talk don't hang too long in the 101 stuff and show the new stuff. It worked great for me. I really like your presentation Scott, keep them coming!

  • ScottHurlbertScott​Hurlbert

    Hey Scott, great stuff. One thing that has plagued me as I try to use these tools is documentation. For example, the MvcScaffolding - where can I find out how to really use it. IE, where is the API documented? Thanks and please keep producing these great presentations. Scott

  • ChrisChris

    This has to be one of the greatest demos/talks of all time. In the words of Lewis Black. "I was laughing my t!ts off!"

  • As always a fantastic presentation with a unique blend of fun and knowledge which only Scott has the secret to.

    It is highest rated presentation so far on this mix.

  • Michael AgbamucheMichael Agbamuche

    Thanks Scott H for this lo you have a way of making this whole asp.NET MVC thingy look like a walk in the park. funny enough, it is, all thanks to you.

    Wish you could do something like this in Nigeria or Africa.

  • Eric WEric W

    MP4 wont play on Zune HD, zune client says invalid format :(

  • Thanks Scott for the great presentation.

    You are amazing!

    I have enjoyed listening to the presentation and great to hear about all these Lego blocks. 

    Thanks to the MIX team for making this available online.
