I must say beforehand that I'm really comfortable with the .NET MVC framework so I did not focused my attention on the details of the presentation. I'm more like a "where it came from, where it goes" kind of guy in those things... Anyways, if someone would have wanted to learn MVC, my advise would have been to sit in a Chapters instead of sitting at DevDays ;)
Unfortunately, the presentation consisted mostly of tutorials and technical details. They presented an overview of a request lifetime, differences with webforms, unit testing, etc. After that they went in depth with a full example from ground up on how to build an ASP.NET MVC website.
Ok that's pretty cool for a neophyte but an historic of the framework and why we use it today would have been also nice... Instead I felt like it was a sales pitch "it's there, it's new, let's see it in action right away!". Ok but.. the whys and hows please!?
I agree it's a matter of opinion of whether or not you like the content of a presentation, but it's my blog, so I give mine ;)
