What's New In ASP.NET MVC 2.0 and 3.0

A session at DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper 2011

Saturday 29th January, 2011

2:00pm to 3:00pm (GMT)

ASP.NET MVC has been making waves over the past 2 years within the ASP.NET community and quite rightly so with features such as promoting separation of concerns, strongly typed views and a great routing system but it doesn't stop there. ASP.NET MVC 2.0 is now publicly available and is also being shipped with Visual Studio 2010 and hot on its heels is version 3.0 which adds Microsoft's new Razor view engine to the mix. But what new features have been brought to the table? What has changed? And most importantly, how will you be affected by upgrading from 1.0 or even 2.0?

This session will bring you up to speed with all the information you need to know delivered through slides and more interestingly, live demos. Topics covered include (but not limited to)
- Razor
- Model-Validator Providers
- Optional URL Parameters
- Template / HTML Helper improvements
- Improved Dependency Injection / Inversion of Control integration
- NuGet Package Manager
- Additions and updates to MVC Attributes
- Visual Studio integration improvements
- Breaking changes from MVC 1.0/2.0
- Pros and cons to MVC
- To upgrade or not to upgrade (or simply, Advice)

We will look at features brought in by both v2.0 and v3.0 of the MVC framework and provides a good source of information for those looking to learn more or to upgrade existing projects.
