Thanks for the mvcConf shoutout - and for all the great support in Channel 9 studios!
By the way - all sessions, including the Live Meeting sessions, are being posted on Channel 9. I think all but a couple are already live by now at the link you posted - http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/mvcConf
@Tominator2005, @N2Cheval - Thanks for the feedback. We'll definitely be writing unit tests, and should have talked about that in this episode. We're not going to be tracking products, so I was really just showing the flow and mechanics of a new MVC 3 project doing CRUD operation using EF Code First. We'll nuke that controller and model and rebuild with unit tests, probably in episode 3 or 4. Episode 2 is already recorded, and it covers the Windows Phone UI.
We are planning to keep building this out to a full working system. File / New Project is kind of by nature a Level 1 topic. Don't worry, this will ramp up as we get the groundwork laid.
There are different approaches to pair programming - the model in which one writes the test and the other writes the code is effective, and we may try that, but it's a little tricky to pass the keyboard back and forth when we live 3000 miles apart. Step one is covering the basics, and that includes getting me up to speed on Windows Phone developement and getting Jesse up to speed on the server-side / MVC side.
The audio and video are higher quality starting with the next epidode. We were figuring out some technical details since Jesse and I are roughly 3000 miles apart. Any other comments, suggestions, things you'd like to see?
