New .NET Role

I'm about to start a new permanent role at a .NET web company in Sydney. I've been lamenting the fact that I won't get to play with Ruby on Rails at work, mainly because I love the simplicity of the Model-View-Controller architecture it forces on you. Then, lo and behold, what should I stumble across but MonoRail, a project to bring the MVC web framework of ActionPack (what drives Rails) to .NET (1.1, 2.0 and Mono).

So I may end up escaping WebForms horror of one-form to a page, abstracted abstractions, and the cross-browser nightmares that follow.

Well, OK, a guy can dream can't he? ;D

[UPDATE: That sounds like I'm not excited about the new role, the fact is I am, especially because we'll be using Scrum, and the guys seem friendly and smart. It's just that I was coding dynamic web pages before WebForms came along, and I hope to be doing so well after they're relegated to the scrapheap.]

  1. Being thrown into a development position using ASP.NET at work for the past month I can definitely feel for you.

    Any tips would be much appreciated.
