Geek Book Give-Away!
Since this is our last meeting of the year, I want to make it a little extra special. We have 4 cases of books leftover from the last Geek Book Exchange. So, everyone who attends the meeting in November will be given a ticket that they can exchange for one book, while supplies last. Happy Holidays!

Razor View Engine
ASP.NET MVC has always supported the concept of “view engines” – which are the pluggable modules that implement different template syntax options. The “default” view engine for ASP.NET MVC today uses the same .aspx/.ascx/.master file templates as ASP.NET Web Forms. Other popular ASP.NET MVC view engines used today include Spark and NHaml. The new view-engine option is optimized around HTML generation using a code-focused templating approach. The codename for this new view engine is “Razor”.
