MVC Storefront, Part 17: Checkout With Jeff Atwood

Posted in Frameworks, Companies, Development on July 18, 2008

Get Microsoft Silverlight

In this episode I ready up the checkout process and talk with Mr. CodingHorror himself, Jeff Atwood. We talk about all kinds of things but mostly discuss Open ID, CardSpace, and how Jeff would like to see the checkout process work in an ideal world. I then walk you through setting up CardSpace on your local machine.

CardSpace Is Dead. Long Live CardSpace!
It's a shame that InfoCard/CardSpace doesn't get the attention it deserves. It really is an amazingly cool technology that can make life a lot easier for developers. It took me a long time (3 days to be exact) to find some usable, workable code to get CardSpace running (yes I've seen the examples - none of them worked).

Long and short of it is that once I got it up and running, I was amazed!
