Tonight, put on the DVR and come out to the Rockville .NET Users Group (RockNUG) for a presentation by Jeff Schoolcraft on ASP.NET MVC

The timing of course couldn't be more appropriate as ScottGu has recently posted about the ASP.NET MVC Framework Update in which he talks about a few pain points I know I've been having as well as others such as:
  • Can be deployed in partial trust in the \bin directory
  • Improved routing features and infrastructure
  • Test wizard now supports and probably one of my favorite features
    • MSTest
    • NUnit
    • MbUnit
    • XUnit.NET
  • Removing ControllerAction Attribute requirement from controllers, instead all public members will be controller actions.  Another nice thing to remove a pain point
  • Filter Support for Controllers and Action methods
  • HTML Helpers now built in
  • And so on...
The plan is to release a new preview at MIX08, so it should be pretty exciting to get the hands on the new bits.

Phil Haack has also covered this with his comments on ASP.NET MVC Update and Blocking Direct Access to Views in ASP.NET MVC.

Anyhow, back to the original intent of the post, the details are as follows:

An Introduction to ASP.NET MVC
presented by Jeff Schoolcraft

Come walk with me as I lead you on a gentle, relaxed tour of the ASP.NET MVC Framework. I'll demystify the forest of three letter acronyms. Then we'll take a journey through the hall of ancestors--and cousins--to discuss some influences and other players in the MVC space. We'll end up at the Grove of Hello World and, like habitat for softwarity, we'll build a demo application. Along the way we might run into some tangential trolls, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Jeff Schoolcraft is the founder of The Queue, Incorporated; a consulting shop that writes software and helps write software better. He has been in the .NET space from nearly the beginning and is still, mostly, writing web applications in C#. He tries to organize a couple Code Camps a year and is hoping to find a developer community that isn't over an hour away. When he's not immersed in code he enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters.
