What about focus on alternative things, such as best practices, patterns, other ways of solving problems?
Not sure if you only have to talk about MS products, technologies and methodologies, but if not, you could talk more about NHibernate, Dependency injection, IOC containers such as StructureMap, Ninject, etc , testing and TDD.
The last year I’ve read and learned more about stuff that the ALT.NET community preaches, which can be a bit different that what MS preaches. It wasn’t until I heard about alt.net that I learned about TDD, DI/IOC, etc. These techniques creates better code and solutions.
The .NET community is in many ways seriously lagging behind other communities such as Java and Ruby, and I feel we can learn alot from them and that is what alt.net to some extent is doing.
I’s be interested in learning more about using the Entity Framework as well
I would like to see MVC with forms auth. and a custom db on the backend. I think a lot of government enterprise works in this manner with external apps. (At least I have for ~10yrs.) But I can never seem to find a good source on the subject. Just examples not really best practices and a full blown example.
If you are looking for a void to fill that no one is covering, how about do a multi table data edit program that has 30 to 50 fields connected to a 4 or 5 tables storage tables with 20 or more support tables using formview and direct connect. Those people who are rewritting vb6 app forms to asp.net web data entry forms run into this issue a lot with no examples to follow. oh by the way, grids not allow and master detail relationship number in the 20’s, have a few hundred thousand records. and make it all fast. That real life examples that would help me the most. And i never run across those.
oh well that life.

MVC would be nice … but, I’d much prefer WPF.

Do your CMS. Both Asp.NET Web Forms and MVC.
jQuery would be nice.
for sure every new project would be in ASP.NET MVC .
and could use new features of Web From (.NET 4) for improving older projects.some folks even migrate their current Web Form contents to MVC !
this is my personal interest though :ASP.NET MVC for new projects Web form for current projects and if possible migrate current web form to mvc .
I know you are doing wonderful job with blog and videos. However, msft is pumping out too many changes and to frequently and developers have to learn extra or same with slightly different technology (mvc and web forms). I would say make something complete and more stable solutions.
Web Forms AND MVC would avoid alienating a huge chunk of the developer community.
It always amazes me how many people read a multiple choice question and then NEED to answer a DIFFERENT question than the one I asked
Oh well – thanks for all the input
Asp.net Client Side ( Libraries ).
MVC and WPF the way forward on the Web and Desktop, why go anywhere else.
I have had great use of your presentations though I am not a professional programmer. I would like to know more about making websites for mobile phones.
Write a e-Commerce book with focus on non-functional requirements, scalability.
Joe, funny you are using Flash to show results on a pie chart. What happened to the ASP.NET or Silverlight charts?
Why is that funny – it’s an ASP.NET web site with an embedded twitter poll ?
PS – Thansk to all of you you INCLUDE your email in your comments !!!
There are still tones of developers using and working on Web Forms. We would appreciate if you provide more advanced content about that topic. Thanks.
with 33% on option 1 and 2, and 10% on option 4, we can technically argue thus far you should focus on 1 and 2 equally giving that it account for like 76% 😉
I hope that you focus on whatever is of most interest to you.
I personally would like to see someone stick with webforms. Seems that every blogger and his mother is blogging about MVC so I can get that stuff elsewhere.
Don’t get me wrong. I like MVC and use it, but I like webforms too.
It would be great to have posts on ASP.NET MVC, WPF and Agile related stuff like TDD, IoC etc etc.
I know it’s not one of your choices, but I think with WM7 coming out it would be hugely beneficial to the .NET platform to focus on building apps that work with WM7.
Would be great if that could be
Web Forms – 40%
Dynamic Data – 40%
MVC – 20%
Please do more things in dynamic data…
How about a vid on using the Ajax Upload control.
