Afternoon of ASP.NET MVC [16 June] (free Headspring event)

Next Tuesday, 16 June 2009 from 1pm to 5pm, Eric Hexter and Jeffrey Palermo will be facilitating a 4-hour (free) workshop on ASP.NET MVC.  This is the second event of this kind, and we intend to continue partnering with Microsoft to provide this kind of free technology training.

Last time the event was held, the room was completely full, so it is very important that you RSVP here.

Go here for all the details.

With the new version of ASP.NET...

ASP.NET MVCDevelopers can easily leverage the Model-View-Controller pattern in ASP.NET applications. Pulling logic away from the UI and the views has been difficult for a long time. The Model-View-Presenter pattern helps a little bit, but the fact that the view has to delegate to the presenter makes the UI pattern difficult to work with.

Headspring has been using ASP.NET MVC since the original prototype and has presented on the topic at local conferences as well as Microsoft TechEd. Headspring employees are responsible for a book on ASP.NET MVC, as well as MvcContrib, CodeCampServer, and several community Solution Templates. This workshop offers the opportunity to share the experience using the ASP.NET MVC Framework on real-world systems.

On Tuesday, June 16, from 1PM to 5PM, we would like to show you some of what we know. Please join us for an afternoon of MVC at the Microsoft Technology Center. Register in advance of attending.

The instructors are Eric Hexter and Jeffrey Palermo.

Training located in Austin, Texas (1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.)

Great news but I am from Romania(Europe) , and there is no way I could get to the event.

Can you please record it and share it to the web so that I (and many others) could see it and learn from it?

I Hope it will be possible!

That page you link to for the half-day event links to the MVC BootCamp preparation page ( Will the half-day course be hands-on, or do those prerequisites just apply to the full length courses? (Maybe it's time I break into the 20th century and get myself a laptop :)

this material is about 15% of what is covered in the ASP.NET MVC boot camp, so we use similar descriptions.
