Our monthly meeting will be held at the Microsoft Greater PA Office in Malvern, PA on Wednesday, August 17 from 5:30-8:30. Refreshments are provided courtesy of Celerity.
The biggest problem for developers moving to MVC is not being able to use a lot of the Web Forms knowledge we’ve already spent so much time learning. This presentation will take the developer from something they already know – ASP.NET Web Forms – and move them into MVC utilizing the knowledge they already have for Web Forms. We will review a complete ASP.NET Web Forms application where we do common tasks, and then see how to do the equivalent type of task in MVC. Procedures such as Data Binding, Error Handling, URL routing, AJAX, and more will be covered. No MVC talk would be complete without discussing how to unit test our MVC code as well. This discussion will also cover common controls (grids, etc) available to the developer and how client libraries used to enhance our MVC applications.
Web sites everywhere ask us to create new accounts and new passwords. When you build your site, do it the right way. Store your users passwords safely and securely so you won’t be the next victim of a hacker attack and the next lead story on the nightly news. You have a responsibility to get this right. We’ll see what .NET does for us and what we can do on our own to safeguard our users.
