After presenting my 'Simple MVC with FW/1' to the CFMeetup yesterday, a new great presentation on Framework One was released by Nathan Dintenfass.  Check it out!  It is a great introduction to the features in FW/1 that I don't get to in my beginner MVC presentation.  Good next step for really making the framework work for you.
