Mike Murray on Compositional and Convention-based Web Development With FubuMVC on 20 September 2011

We’re very pleased to announce that Mike Murray has agreed to do a talk on FubuMVC. FubuMVC is a .NET open-source front-controller MVC web framework. Fubu (which stands for "for us, by us") focuses on rapid development, pluggability, and convention-based configuration. It tries to focus on SOLID principles, composability, separation of concerns, DRY, and other critical concepts of rapid, frictionless and pain-free web development. There are several differentiating features from ASP.NET MVC, such as behavior chains, packaging, routing conventions, HTML conventions, and much more.

Session agenda

  • Starting Bare Bones from the FubuMVC NuGet package
  • Exploring the Getting Started Sample from the FubuMVC Guides
  • Configuring Routes via Conventions
  • View Location and Discovery
  • Clean Controller Actions with Behavior Chains
  • HTML Markup Generated By View Model Conventions
  • Ultimate Modularity with Packages (Bottles)

For those of you who don’t know Mike, he’s a software engineer for Extend Health, Inc. Mike has been primarily developing with C# and .NET for 7 years, and currently entertains interests in F#, Ruby, and JavaScript on the side. At Extend Health, he is participating in the migration of the company's production website from ASP.NET MVC to FubuMVC, while also contributing back bug fixes and features to the open-source project.
