Posttorial: ASP.NET MVC, Entity Framework and LINQ video tutorials - Including MIX09, PDC, TechED [closed]


EDIT: During this post I started searching on video tutorials on ASP.NET MVC, EF and LINQ and found some very useful links which I shared here. As I believe videos are more interactive and easier to learn from. Hope, they'll help.

Guys, please share the resources to get start on MVC, Entity Framework and LINQ. And if you can define a way to get into it quickly and then drive it up please recommend that too.

I am an experience ASP.NET developer (C# 2.0) looking to adopt the latest framework. I am looking for a path to move into it quickly.



The free eBook by Scott Guthrie was mentioned, but it's essentially the forward to "Professional ASP.NET MVC 1.0". I picked it up as a reference as I'd been messing with MVC since early Beta -- plus it's a good way to repay the guys that put so much work into it -- and I still managed to find a couple of good nuggets in it.

For Entity Framework itself, I don't know. Linq to SQL is NOT dead and I typically will use that or SubSonic when I'm doing the .NET work. That said, Microsoft has a link to EF resources on the MSDN site that might have what you're looking for.

With LINQ, you're on your own. I think the best way to learn anything is to actually sit down and do it. I found this especially true with LINQ.

Try and find blogs of guys that are doing the actual development of these frameworks and subscribe to the RSS feeds so you don't have to go visit all of the sites. Just immerse yourself in it and you should pick it up pretty quickly.

Also, nose around StackOverflow and read the tags people are posting. If there's not an answer, try and figure it out. As I said earlier, I believe the best way to learn is by doing and there's no better experience than solving real-world problems.
