Windows Azure Feed Reader Episode 3

Sorry for the lateness of this posting. Real life keeps getting in the way.

This weeks episode is a bit of a departure from the previous two episodes. The original recording I did on Friday had absolutely no sound. So, instead of re-doing everything. I give you a deep walkthrough of the code. Be as that may, I did condense an hours worth of coding into a 20 minute segment – which is probably a good thing.

As I mentioned last week, this week we get our code to actually do stuff – like downloading, parsing and displaying a feed in the MVCFrontEnd.

We get some housekeeping done as well – I re-wrote the OPML reader using LINQ and Extension Methods. We’ll test this next week.

The final 20 minutes, or so is a fine demonstration of voodoo troubleshooting ( i.e. Hit run and see what breaks) but we get Scott Hanselmans feed parsed and displayed. The View needs a bit of touching up to display the feed better, but be as that may, it works.

Since we get a lot done this week, its rather longer – 1 hour and 9 minutes. I could probably edit out all the pregnant pauses. 🙂

Here’s the show:
