ASP.NET MVC Live Example – DealFlakes

I have had been using as my technical playground for a while. I have experimented with some cool AJAX JSON based communication and some nifty Server side tricks. With the arrival (well, the previews) of ASP.NET MVC, I was so excited that i wanted to re-write the on MVC framework (not a lot once i know what i wanted to do and how to organize the data).

DealFlakes is basically a Deal Aggregation portal !

  1. JQUERY (for communication and User Experience effects)
  2. LINQ – (Linq-to-SQL and Linq-to-XML to talk to my data stores)
  3. And at this point ASP.NET MVC Preview 4 (I love the caching and Authentication modules in this preview)
  4. SQL Server (2005) with some XML files
  5. And hosted on IIS7 (Windows Server 2008)

I have learned quite a bit of JavaScript while working with Jquery and i encourage all of you to have a look at it. I am sure, you are going to love it. And my CSS skills are getting better :) Well, layout is kind of similar to Digg, umm(they invented the wheel)!!!

Any how, if you are a bargain hunter and would like to keep some money in your pocket (May be more available balance on your credit card) you should check out I am going to keep this as a serious website and not going to play with it any more (at least that effects the Functionality and User Experience). And yes, i will be adding some very exciting features very soon. So, stay tuned.

Go DealFlakes…

  1. Hello,

    on DealFlakes I can see a link like:

    I want do do this too, I have set up two Index Methods in my Home Controller, one method for root page without arguments, and one method taking an ID argument, like:

    public ActionResult Index()
    public ActionResult Index(int id)

    But it says, ambigous action method "Index". How did you do this? Thanks for your reply
