Video of FubuMVC at MvcConf

My talk from MvcConf is up on Viddler at:  http://www.viddler.com/explore/mvcconf/videos/15/.  I was disappointed with how it turned out, but other people were asking me about when it would be up, so here you go.  At a minimum, it does show some of the significant differences of the Fubu approach.  One of the criticisms I heard repeatedly was that I didn’t really do a good job of comparing FubuMVC to ASP.Net MVC and showing the warts on both frameworks.  I constantly get asked for the comparisons between Fubu and MSMVC anyway, so at some point in August I’ll publish a longish write up explaining my criticisms towards ASP.Net MVC, why I don’t like the technical approach it takes, the opportunities I think the ASP.Net MVC misses out on because of its architecture, and a bit about how we think the Fubu approach helps to solve those problems.  Don’t worry, I’ll try hard to keep it grounded and avoid being unnecessarily inflammatory.

I think the weaknesses of Fubu are much more obvious (flat out missing functionality, limited community support, very little documentation, no VS integration (which doesn’t concern me per se, but others do care), no real “warmup” / “storyteller createproject MyNewProject” bootstrapping yet — but it’s coming).

    Keep up the good work, Jeremy! This stuff is gold. While not every team will be able to convert over to a Fubu project due to the weaknesses you pointed out (and no MS stamp), many more of us are willing to use it than you may think.

    In addition, MS is notorious for borrowing from other frameworks, and in this case, that would be utterly wonderful. I know you guys do not care of the MS team did just that, so long as the reach of good code is maintained for the masses.
