Update: Thanks to everyone who came. You can download the sample application we build here and slides below:
The topic will be:
BUILDING WEB APPS WITH ASP.NET MVC AND NOSQL
This talk guides you through building modern web applications using ASP.NET MVC and MongoDB, one of the most popular NoSQL databases.
You will learn some best practices for getting started with MVC. We’ll cover building rich-forms to accept user input. And if time permits, we might even add some client-side techniques using jQuery and MVC.
All of this will be built upon the powerful non-relational database MongoDB. We will discuss the origins of the so-called NoSQL movement and why you might choose a non-relational database over SQL Server. You’ll also see our data access layer will be built using LINQ to MongoDB.
Of course, you won’t be in for a night of PowerPoint. This talk is a series of interactive demos using Visual Studio 11, Windows 8, and C#.
I hope to see you there! There is a chance I’ll have some prizes from DevelopMentor to hand out while I’m there too.
