As a matter of fact, the world of ASP.NET is changing. My guess is that we will find it significantly revolutionized in only a couple of years from now.
Revolutionized in which way? Does that mean having new tools for producing HTML? JSON only and client-side HTML? New flavors of server-side or perhaps client-side components? Richer browsers?
No I think it simply means a new and refactored (at the very minimum) runtime environment. Likely meaner and leaner than today; with no tight dependency on the host server and hostable elsewhere. Yes, this is the OWIN part of the story. But I just guess that we’re in the middle of a transaction and the state, as we observe it today, may be blurred and even a bit confused. But I trust there’s a method in this madness.
Waiting for that, I’m surprised to keep getting questions about whether it is safe to mix Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC in the same project. Safe is safe; the runtime is just the same and it hasn’t changed since the early days of .NET and ASP.NET. Yes, the time when a guy like me was likely more popular than a guy like ScottGu 🙂
Safe is safe, and it couldn’t be safer. I have done it several times and recommended even more times. No complaints or troubles. At least so far 😀
