The Problem The problem consists of a list of salespeople that have sales.  Here are the classes involved: public class SalesPerson { public string Name { get; set; } public IList<Sales> Sales { get; set;...

    Another Great CodeStock

    Last week marked another great CodeStock, a two day developer conference in Knoxville, TN.  The organizer, Michael Neel, does a great job of juggling the speakers, schedule, and venue, and the show continues to get better and better!

    SQL Saturday Hawaii Recap

    SQL Saturday 72 (Honolulu) was a great success!  This event had three tracks – one for SQL (of course), one for .NET and one for more general topics.  Chris Eargle (@kodefuguru) and I came from the mainland and presented (between the two of us) 7 topics. This was my first time in Hawaii, and it was great.  Although I could only stay for 48 hours (I think I spent more time in planes than I did in the Islands), everyone I met was extremely friendly.  The attendees at the event were very engaging, asked a ton of great questions, and followed...

    MVC3 and unobtrusive validation support with Grid for ASP.NET MVC

    January 20, 2011 Share
    As you may know, we just released our ASP.NET MVC extensions latest service pack. Beside the regular dose of fixes, this service release incorporates even better support of the official version of MVC3. One of those new MVC3 feature, which I want to bring to your attention, is the unobtrusive validation.   We all know how client validation from the previous version of MVC has worked; outputting a mass of JSON serialized validation rules. Although, this approach is still available, the newer one is far more pleasing. Enabled by default in the VS2010’s MVC3 project template, validation rules will be attached...
