MVC 3, "Third Times a Charm" references

For the last few months I've been on an MVC 3 binge, learning as much as I can fit in my tiny brain. (Had to throw a few other things out first of course.)

Web Dev Conf New Zealand (WDCNZ), is in Wellington very soon (schedule on lanyrd), and I'll be talking there about all things MVC 3. This is keeping me awake nights, I can tell you.

I've applied to talk at the stack overflow dev days conference in Sydney in October. That would be an absolute blast. I rank my chances pretty low, but my excitement is high regardless.

Recently I talked at QMSDNUG, on 'MVC 3: Third Times a Charm', alongside Joe Cooney. It was a lot of fun, and we allegedly broke a record with our crowd size. It's basically a preview of what I'll cover in Wellington, though some material will be in or out as I revise.

(Higgins got another workout, and had some html5 goodness baked in)

I promised to put up the references from my talk. They're mostly about customizating your MVC 3 experience in Visual Studio. Here they are.

url topic razor: ebook [pdf] editor & display templates (Brad Wilson) MVC Mini profiler (Sam Saffron) Code templates (Scott Hanselman) MVC Scaffolding (Steve Sanderson) Project Templates (Phil Haack) Roundup of tutorials (Jon Galloway)

If you use MVC 3, what are your favourite bits? What would you cover in a talk? If you don't use it, why not? And what are the sort of things you'd like to see deomonstrated?
