I am somewhat puzzled, who is the target audience for this series: developers new to MVC3, or ones new to MVC? Walkthrough NuPack was nice; Code First example could be interesting, but it was generated and otherwise glossed over. Same withRazor.
Altogether, some 90% of time was spent on creating views and tinkering with controller. Nothing that Nerd Dinner didn't learn months ago. Hopefully, next episodes will make it clear - if you are new to MVC (then maybe you shouldn't use pre-release software); or if you want to learn new stuff in MVC and EF.
