    Is there any offline version of the videos ?
    My company has a “90’s” version of internet access, and the bandwidth is too low for viewing the videos.

    I have been trying to follow this video. It looks great but i cannot reproduce the work. Everything appears to quite different. I use NuGet not NuPack, i think it has been replaced. The commands in my package installer are different. I ended up using install-package, which worked, sort of. It did not create my sample model. I have recreated it by hand by trying to see the code on the video. It’s a little blurry, but i think i have it all correct now. So most issues solved, one big one left though. Every time I run the app, I get en error saying DB already exists and I have to delete it, so it works but only as long as the app is running, as soon as I restart it I lose all data, because I have to delete the DB. Anyone else had this problem? How did you solve it?
    Thanks for any help. Otherwise this is one of the best video cats I have ever seen. I have been long to start using MVC and this really helped getting some idea on how it works.

    Great stuff guys I’ve been wanting to see a web app tutorial using the full stack for quit a while now it would be nice to see web forms added in some where all so the best of all four worlds in one app thanks for the effort like John said it makes it more understandable and easier to learn something along the way
    Keep up the good work Thanks

    I have started working through this along with the video. I’ve got to the point at which you show the Product view for the first time (44:20-ish). In the video you are using the automatically generated Index.cshtml. When I run this for the first time (with the Product table empty) I get a Null Reference Exception on “Model” (line 28) so have to check first whether Model is null.

    Am I missing something?!

    Thank You. Your explinations have really helped me understand how this works. I have been a developer for 10 + years, and although I understand MVC, seeing the practical application makes it much more understandable. (To me at least) Keep up the great work!
