I’m going to be giving a talk at “The Stack” in August. If you’ve never heard of it, this is a monthly user group for developers in the Liverpool area who use Microsoft technologies. I’ll be talking about some of the extensibility points in the ASP.NET MVC framework, and hopefully my summary for the evening’s agenda will give you a “taste” of what I’ll be covering:
One-Pot MVC: Deliciously Extensible
“Take a rich stock of MVC, and stir in some validation rules. I suggest regular model annotations are substituted with FluentValidation libraries, for added flavour. While your controller is simmering prepare unit tests, but be careful your project manager doesn’t boil over! Choose your favourite IoC container (NInject works well) and mix in concrete dependencies as required.
Finally, add a pinch of MvcContrib and serve on time and in budget.”
I’ll provide another update with dates and details of other speakers as it gets finalised.
