Your New Toy ASP.NET MVC 1.0 is Ready !!!

After a long development process Microsoft announced stable release of ASP.NET MVC 1.0 some resources about ASP.NET MVC and official download link is here.

After a quick glance to product details, it doesn’t bring brand new features even though MVC technology has been available in open source world for years. Also, there is a feature comparison between asp.net web forms and new asp.net MVC:

Briefly, Microsoft tells us; until today we made you build applications that cannot be separable conceptually (data, business, presentation layer) and cannot be unit tested and also, we put things that you cannot optimize your web sites for SEO … Developers who don’t know open source may not think the way I’m because it a new technology for them.

Those Microsoft guys enjoy your new toy 🙂


Linux vs. Windows Conflict

Since we moved to our new office with new company and additional staff, we’ve switched our platform from JEE on Linux to asp.net on Windows because D&D is easy to use which I completely disagree. Today one of the developers in the office noticed that our .net development server is down. It is used for development and test purposes (manual tests). It is crashed despite having better hardware when compared our old servers which is not a server (we build it with oem products) and it is running Fedora and still up and serves well. Windows box is broken, having power issues but Linux box is still up for 408 days. What a conflict!!! Linux box with poor hardware having better performance and robust when compared better windows box with better hardware (designed for servers).

Man, .net really sucks … I already know it but .Net developers prove it.


.NET Culture Issues

I usually don’t understand Microsoft and its product management strategies.  I had some problems with Turkish currency format in asp.net. Searching locale issues in .net resulted in .net cultures. Computer scientists and engineers exactly everyone in I.T. industry except Microsoft, call language specifics parameters (country, currency, date-time formats …etc.) as locale.

I think it is plain old M$ strategy to force developers to for its standards. It doesn’t make sense. Culture :)). I really wonder who named it.


Why Not to Use Drag & Drop .NET Development

Turkey’s leading Airline Company THY’s web site runs asp.net well but it is a little bugs. For example, if you try to select a destination it may not work! as captured below:

How to fix? Don’t hire D&D developers.
