Perth .NET User Group meeting: ASP.NET MVC with Michael Minutillo
Join us at the Perth .NET Community of Practice, February 7th to hear Michael Minutillo present on Microsoft’s ASP.NET MVC framework. In this session, Michael will give an introduction to this new Microsoft technology. ASP.NET MVC is a presentation framework being developed by Microsoft to provide an alternative to Web Forms for web-application development. Leveraging the well-known Model View Controller design pattern it enables developers to create robust, maintainable web sites.
TOPIC: ASP.NET MVC with Michael Minutillo
DATE: 7th February, 5:30pm
VENUE: Excom, Level 2, 23 Barrack Street, Perth
COST: Free. All Welcome.
MVC is a framework methodology that separates an application's implementation into three component roles: models, views, and controllers. One of the benefits of using a MVC methodology is that it helps enforce a clean separation of concerns between the models, views and controllers within an application. Maintaining a clean separation of concerns makes the testing of applications much easier, since the contract between different application components are more clearly defined and articulated.
I will be giving away a few goodies: a Resharper license, a copy of the book “The ASP.NET Anthology” and a few T-shirts. If you want a seat, try to arrive early!
