Damian Edwards at NDC 2013 talking about ASP.NETAbout a year ago we thought it would be a good idea to do a talk on "What not to do in ASP.NET?" – basically an anti-patterns talks. We kept seeing folks falling into the same traps and wanted to be prescriptive as there’s aspects to ASP.NET that are 10 years old and don’t apply to today’s internet, but there are also new aspects to ASP.NET that are only a year old, and perhaps haven’t soaked into the zeitgeist quite yet.

Damian Edwards gave his version of this talk at NDC 2013 and you can watch the video here if you like, it’s very entertaining.

We took the information we gathered from people like Damian, Levi Broderick and others, and Tom FitzMacken put together a whitepaper on the topic. It’s not complete, but it covers some of the most common "gotchas" folks run into.

Here are the areas we call out in the whitepaper so far, with highlights below from me.

I hope this helps someone out!
