Title: Real World ASP.Net MVC

Synopsis: This is an MVC presentation focused on code, not academics. Paul recently re-factored a high traffic web site from WebForms to MVC and is eager to show you both how easy it was and the quantum leaps ASP.Net MVC will give your organization. The talk’s goal is for an experienced ASP.Net developer to leave with a solid understanding of ASP.Net MVC basics.

Material that will be new to most .Net developers include: living without drag-and-drop controls, jQuery, JSON based AJAX, MVC partials, custom routing etc. This may sound complicated but the hurdle to learning MVC is not as large as you believe – any WebForms developer with a little commitment can move to MVC and start building world-class websites again.

Bio: Paul Lockwood has nineteen years IT experience and three IT degrees including a Masters in AI and Robotics. He has used .Net exclusively since early 2001 and specializes in larger web based projects. He owns an Atlanta based .Net consulting company but has previously worked in five different countries for companies including: London Stock Exchange, UBS, SwissRe,, Accenture and EDS.
