I had an absolutely fantastic time at the Alt.Net UK Conference this weekend, lots of interesting discussions and some great new people met, thanks to everyone involved in the organisation, and to all the other attendees for bringing so much to the proceedings.


  • ASP.NET MVC V2 Preview 1 Released – ScottGu anounces the release of ASP.NET MVC 2.0 Preview 1 with one of his traditional software release posts, going into all the details of the new bits. The good news about the release is taht V2 Preview 1 runs side by side with V1, so you can safely try it out.
  • ASP.NET MVC 2 Preview 1 Released – Phil Haack also announces the new release, along with thanking his team and providing some related links, including the source for the preview release on CodePlex.



  • Brighton ALT.NET Beers: Tuesday 4th August, 7pm at The Prince Albert – A quick reminder about the Alt.Net Brighton Beers event to be held tomorrow evening at The Prince Albert – I’m sure there will be plenty of good discussion following on from the UK Alt.Net Conference
