After months of community beta testing the first release build of the ASP.NET MVC (Model View Controller) framework has been released. If you are a web developer and don’t know what I’m talking about, head on over to the ASP.NET MVC site where you can find a wealth of tutorials, videos and oodles of samples to get you started.
What excites me about the ASP.NET MVC framework is that web developers will hopefully be moving away from the legacy forms based approach while sticking with the familiarity of the ASP.NET framework. Scott Hanselman pointed out at the talk he gave SA Developer .NET in December 2008 how ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET WebForms merely build on the rich plumbing framework that is ASP.NET. Most people tend to get confused about that.
You can download the ASP.NET MVC installer from here.

I thought you might find this interesting as I am based in Johannesburg and I competed in the Gillette Champions of Gaming Final in Orlando earlier this year. I won the regional title for Europe playing Tiger Woods and came second in the world at the competition meeting Tiger Woods along with many other Gillette celebrities. I have loads of vids, photos, etc from the event, so perhaps there can be some story on this. My gamertag is k2damoon if you want to look it up.
So finally the average web developer will be coerced into doing what many of us have been doing for years anyway — good design principals. MVC was invented in the 70’s, so its only taken 30+ years for the masses to catch on.
