ASP.NET MVC 2 and Ninject 2

For a geeky, non-Simon related pause, I'd like to mention that Microsoft released ASP.NET MVC 2 today (or yesterday, I'm not actually sure). This is my super favorite flavor of Web development right now, and probably will be for some time to come. I guess the only true production app I've solo developed with it is my blog, but we use it at work, and of course I'll migrate POP Forums, CoasterBuzz, etc. to it eventually. I figured it wouldn't drop until next week at Mix, which I sadly won't be at, but I haven't been paying attention to work much in the last week. :)

So why do I care about this framework? Mostly because it uses the Web, and HTTP, the way it was mostly intended. Using it instead of Webforms just feels cleaner, more simple and crazy easy to test, especially if you're using a dependency injection thingy.

Which brings me to my next plug, for Ninject 2. I might be accused of giving props to the guy who wrote it because he's from Akron, but I really do like how simple and clean it is, with no ugly XML configuration nonsense, and no external dependencies. I already plugged it into some projects, and it sure makes testing and wiring up stuff a breeze.

Both frameworks are open source, delicious and good for you.
