Nashville .NET User's Group Presentation

Yesterday I gave my first User's Group (UG) presentation at the Nashville .NET UG entitled... "A Crash Course in ASP.NET MVC".

In the presentation I gave an overview of what MVC is, explained some pros & cons of using it, answered some common questions, presented a demo application that I developed (Pet Shop 5), and then I dived into the demo's code.

You can download the content that I presented at the User’s Group below… <ul><li>A Crash Cource in ASP.NET MVC* (Power Point 2007)</li> <li>A Crash Cource in ASP.NET MVC* (Power Point 2003)</li> <li>Pet Shop 5 Project</li></ul>*Note: There is some additional slides at the end of the slide show that you might find interesting. <p>You also might want to check out a blog post I created a month or so ago intended for ASP.NET Web Form developers to quickly get up to speed on the concepts of ASP.NET MVC. A lot of the material is about pre-Preview 5 releases of ASP.NET MVC, but I still think it would be beneficial for most developers. If you so choose, you can directly link to the document hosted on Google Documents.</p> <p>You might be interested in keeping up with me via:</p> <table border="0"><tr><td>Email</td><td></td><td>elijah.manor@gmail.com</td></tr><tr></tr><tr><td>Twitter</td><td></td><td>http://twitter.com/elijahmanor</td></tr><tr></tr><tr><td>.NET Tech blog</td><td></td><td>http://webdevdotnet.blogspot.com</td></tr><tr></tr><tr><td>Stack Overflow</td><td></td><td>http://stackoverflow.com/…/elijah-manor</td></tr><tr></tr><tr><td>Tech Riddle blog</td><td></td><td>http://manorisms.blogspot.com</td></tr><tr></tr><tr><td>Personal blog</td><td></td><td>http://elijahmanor.blogpot.com</td></tr><tr></tr></table><p>Thanks for everyone who came… there was an awesome crowd!</p>
