Last month we had an Intro to MVC with a Hands on Lab. This month we will continue pressing on with more of the fundamentals of working with
ASP.NET (http://asp.net/) MVC. We will use last month's completed project as our starting point and enhance it by learning and working with the following topics:
- Extending the existing model with data validation attributes. We will address both server-side and client-side validation.
- Understanding HTML Helpers and why you want to use them.
- Understanding and working with routing
Didn't make it to last month's meet up or maybe you've forgotten everything already? No worries, you'll do fine. We will have people in the room ready to help you work through the hands-on labs should you hit a speed bump or two.
Every attendee will have access to the completed project from last month and will be able to hit the ground running.
We will see you there!
**Bring your notebooks and Visual Studio 2012/2013 or [free] Visual Studio Express.
We have posted the June Lab-1 document and associated code up on Github here:
