Reviews for this release

In my case, I was looking for ideas on how to test ASP.NET MVC projects, and Nerd Dinner has helpful sample code!

This project is now so out of data as to be almost useless.

First of all; thanks for the application and tutorial, they are both great. However an updated documentation is really needed, furthermore it would be nice to be able to select sql server databases and not express, for those of us that would like to upload nerddinner to commercial webhotel provider, which dont support express.

Nerddinner is always my favourite MVC sample and point of reference. A very belated "Thank you" to Scott and folks. I've uploaded my take on MVC2 -- icomplain on codeplex to be another MVC2 sample app. It can be found at It covers some more practicalities. I hope it can bring some value to the MVC 2 tutorial.

I started learning ASP.NET MVC using Scott Guthrie's sample chapter. I am now finishing my first MVC website. I lost the book and today I need a small thing from it so I came here to download it again. Good opportunity to say thank you to Scott. Thank you Scott!

Senf.. probably because you use a diferent sql server version? i had a similar problem - which took me to create db, tables (the entire project - following Wrox Book - its been a quite long but productive way to learn mvc as my works requires it.

Senf - post questions on the MVC forum You should right click the zip file\properties then select unblock. After unzipping, chmod +W (remove Read Only bit)

Got this running on project add, VS 2010, Windows 7 32bit. I would like to see a more complex example developed for more advanced projects utilizing a more extensive model, vs, just two tables. Overall, a good starter example for teh no0bs.

I can't get the database connectivity to work. Very frustrating. A waste of time.
