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.

Join us at the Perth .NET user group, Thurs May 5th, where we will look at the new Razor View Engine, Unobtrusive Javascript, Integrated Scaffolding, better support for IoC integration. We will also touch on SQL CE 4, NuGet and Entity Framework 4.1 (Magic Unicorns Editions). Come and see the Lego pieces and be inspired by what you can build.
