MVC 2 in Action book conducting public reviews

If you’d like to get an early glimpse of ASP.NET MVC 2 in Action, you can participate on the public email list at http://groups.google.com/group/mvc2inaction-discuss.  The first bit of the manuscript is ready to review, and it consists of chapter 23, Data Access with NHibernate.  You can also access every bit of code, text, and image at the book’s GitHub repository.  With the first book, ASP.NET MVC in Action, Manning conducted an Early Access Program (MEAP).  Manning will still conduct it, but our program is a early, early access program.  In other words, you can have access to the unedited, perhaps dirty, manuscript and help as it drives forward to polish and completion.

As each piece of the manuscript is complete, we will post it to this list and ask for feedback.  Anyone who gives us constructive feedback on the list WILL be thanked in the acknowledgements section at the front of the book when it goes to print.  Also, you will have influence in shaping this book so that it is as good as it can be.

Our hope is that this book serves the .Net community that is working ASP.NET MVC 1 and ASP.NET MVC 2 applications.

The author team consists of:

If this book project interests you, and if you know people who should be involved, please blog, tweet, and otherwise post a link to this announcement.

Since I enjoyed the first edition of the ASP.NET MVC in Action book I figured I would jump on this second

Great to see Eric Hexter on board. Once again, I'm looking forward to this.

+1 for Eric Hexter

You may want to include a full chapter or at least a section of a chapter on CQRS and how it might be applied using MVC.

Udi talked a lot about that when he was in Austin in December--just ask Matt Hinze.

That's a good idea. If you have a particular code sample that you think would best describe this, we'd love to include it in the book. If you'd like, you can send us a pull request from GitHub.

great news to see an update.

What parts will be covered in this book ?

Eric said on 1.05.2010 at 2:58 PM

Edition #1 was a good read.

Let's pack this book even thicker with delicious content!

It would be great to see Steve Sanderson in the group.

re: Ben

Steve Sanderson has got his own second edition to work on! :)

Right now each first edition has it's own merits. I'd recommend both. Although they both cover ASP.NET MVC, each have their own spin and choice of supporting libraries. I'm glad I read both.

In ASP.NET MVC 1 you either had to write a custom route to pass in default values, or create nullable types as parameters and check for the null values in your code. ASP.NET MVC 2 Beta now supports decorating action method parameters with the DefaultValueAttribute from the System.ComponentModel namespace. This allows you to specify parameters values if none are present.
