StackOverflow at PDC

asp.net, asp.net mvc 0 comments suggest edit

pdc2008 First of all, I want to congratulate Jeff Atwood, Joel Spolsky, and their team for the release of StackOverflow.com. If you haven’t tried it out, I highly recommend giving it a shot. Be prepared, it’s addicting.

Besides my 959 reputation score (which is actually pretty weak), the other thing about StackOverflow that excites me is that it’s built using ASP.NET MVC. So far, Jeff has mostly praised the experience of using ASP.NET MVC, though he’s had a few pain points that I’m now well aware of. :)

Stackoverflow
LogoI like StackOverflow so much that I asked Jeff to take a 10-15 minute slice of my ASP.NET MVC talk at PDC to talk about his experiences building StackOverflow using ASP.NET MVC. Having a demonstration of a real-world application using ASP.NET MVC will be a nice complement to my overview talk. For the rest of the talk, he’ll be my code monkey.

By the way, if you’re planning to attend PDC, please navigate to the link to my talk and leave a comment with any requests for things you’d love to hear me talk about. I am currently planning to give the general overview, but perhaps some of you want to hear more anecdotes from the product team, or more details about specific features.

    Awesome! Jeff and Joel are great. Love their podcast and the site, though Jeff's blogging has suffered since he has been working on it

    The site so far seems good and, as other people pointed out on Jeff's blog, addictive like World of Warcraft (you just explore questions to grind xp... I mean, badges :-)
    My only problem so far is that I'm never able to be the first to answer, so I rarely get voted... damn :-P
