ASP.NET MVC Framework on the Polymorphic Podcast

Craig Shoemaker recently interviewed me on the Polymorphic Podcast regarding the MVC Framework and the MvcContrib project.

I, along with Ben Scheirman and Dave Verwer, are writing ASP.NET MVC in Action for Manning, and I talk a little about that.

I spoke a lot about MvcContrib.  I really have to brag on the folks contributing to MvcContrib and to Eric Hexter, who does a lot of work to keep that project’s CI setup going.  Here’s the latest build report below.  If you are curious how you can get nearly 1000 unit tests runing in an automated build and have it run in less than 3 minutes, pull down the source and see how the build and tests are put together.
