CMAP Code Camp 2008 Spring Edition

Yesterday, I gave a talk at CMAP Code Camp about the mvc framework and AJAX using JQuery. This is my first time speaking, so I was a little nervous. I think I did ok but I can’t really tell. Of course, the talk didn’t go as planned, because Visual Studio didn’t cooperate. Thankfully, I had a Plan B and pulled up code that I had already prepared and just walked through it and explained it. I wanted to give more details but I didn’t have enough time.

So, if you have attended the talk, I would love to hear your feedback, so please leave me a comment or send me a not through the contact page.

Previously, I posted some mvc framework resources over here. You can also see my mvc bookmarks at

There are also tons of JQuery resources at and I found this handy JQuery 1.2 cheat sheet (remember: this is for version 1.2)
