Reminder: Perth .NET User Group: ASP.NET MVC framework with Michael Minutillo
Scott Hanselman is fond of saying that programming components are like Lego pieces and right now "the lego pieces coming out of Microsoft are the right size". One important piece of the web stack is the ASP.NET MVC framework. Since its initial release in March 2009 there has been a new version of the framework released every year and it has quickly become the platform of choice for .NET developers creating web sites. January 2011 saw the version 3.0 release which introduces a number of changes and new features. Additionally, at the MIX11 conference earlier this month Microsoft released the "MVC3 tools refresh" which make developing MVC3 applications in Visual Studio 2010 a highly productive experience.
Mike Minutillo is .NET software engineer with a B.Sc. in computer science. In 2000, Mike started writing .NET software to fund his university studies and has been an active member of the .NET community ever since. Mike is a regular attendee at the Perth .NET Community of Practice where he has given presentations on new features of C#, ASP.NET MVC and Test-Driven Philosophy. In 2009 he started the Perth ALT.NET user group which meets monthly to discuss software engineering tools and practices in the .NET development space. Mike is co-author of Professional Visual Studio 2010. He maintains a technical blog at http://wolfbyte-net.blogspot.com/ and can be contacted at http://twitter.com/wolfbyte/.
