Bob Lewis (opps!) Bob Grommes is talking about Real Developers. Since he touches on some of the things that I have talked about recently, I want to make something clear. I don't think that WebForms are bad because you are not manually parsing the query string and form data yourself (to an unprotected buffer, in assmebly).
I like a lot of the things that ASP.Net has to offer. I don't like the attempt to put a Shambling Facade in front of the way things work to make the easy scenarios demoable, and the hard scenarios harder.
