MIX 09 had some great announcements for web developers and we designers, I thought I’d post a summary of some of the announcements here so you can follow up on those that interest you.  This Week on Channel9 has a great re-cap where they discuss many of these announcements.  Check out their video Live from MIX09

IE8 Releases


Two weeks ago at MIX we released ASP.NET MVC 1.0.  ASP.NET MVC is a free, fully supported, Microsoft product that enables developers to easily build web applications using a model-view-controller pattern.  ASP.NET MVC provides a “closer to the metal” web programming option for ASP.NET.  It enables full control over HTML markup and URL structure, and facilitates unit testing and a test driven development workflow.
