I will be speaking at the Connecticut .NET Developers Group that will be held at the Microsoft offices in Farmington, CT on September 14, 2010.
Here is my topic:
ASP.NET MVC 2: Best Practices
Level: Intermediate / Advanced
Abstract: ASP.NET MVC 2 was released earlier this year as an update to ASP.NET MVC 1 with several improvements. This talk will briefly review what ASP.NET MVC 2 is and then will dive into some best practices for using the tool to build great web applications. We will cover the best usage of controllers, models, views, routing, testing, security, and deployment.
Depending on time, we will also briefly look at some new features of ASP.NET MVC 3 Preview 1.
After the talk, I will make slides and code available on my website here.
I haven't spoke at a conference for awhile but I plan to offer several sessions at the New England Code Camp 14 that will be held at the Microsoft offices in Waltham, MA on October 2, 2010.
Here are my topics:
Introduction to ASP.NET MVC 2
Abstract: MVC has been a big buzzword for ASP.NET developers. We'll explore what it is, what problems it solves, and how to be effective with it. This is for beginners that have had no experience with MVC but have worked with ASP.NET Web Forms.
Advanced ASP.NET MVC 2
Abstract: In this talk, I'll cover advanced topics in the newly released ASP.NET MVC 2 framework, including customized display and editor templates, writing your own server- and client-side validators, writing your own validation and metadata providers, customizing the T4 templates used to generate views, asynchronous processing, and more.
Securing your Silverlight 4 Applications
Abstract: No exploration of Silverlight is complete without understanding both the security features it provides and generally how to ensure your Silverlight application has been developed with security in mind. This session will go over Silverlight’s security model and general techniques for understanding how to design for and develop secure Silverlight 4 applications.
After the talks, I will make slides and code available on my website here.
I have recently finished writing a comprehensive training course on ASP.NET MVC 2 with C#. I am now offering this 3-day course through my independent consulting company. Please check out my Training page on my company web site if you are interested.
(By the way, I updated my own website to run and use the .NET Framework 4.0 and ASP.NET MVC 2. It was a fun exercise to update my 10+ year old format I used for ages.)
