My latest batch of cheat sheets is out on DRP which are focused on ASP.NET MVC. So what is in this set:

ASP.NET MVC View Cheat Sheet

This focuses on the HTML Helpers, URL Helpers and so on that you would use within your views.


ASP.NET MVC Controller Cheat Sheet

This focuses on what you return from your controller and how to use them and it also includes a lot of information on the MVC specific attributes.


ASP.NET MVC Framework Cheat Sheet

This focuses on the rest of MVC like routing, folder structure, execution pipeline etc… and some info on where you can get more info (is that meta info?).


ASP.NET MVC Proven Practises Cheat Sheet

This contains ten key learnings that every ASP.NET MVC developer should know - it also includes links to the experts in this field where you can get a ton more information on those key learning's.

The cheat sheets are great. But the links in Proven Practices Cheat Sheet are not working. Can you post the full url for each. Thanks

I have tested and all the tinyURL's worked fine for me - but I liked the idea of posting the full URL's too so I have updated the post with a list of all the URL's ;)
