Next month sees the resumption of the VBUG Newcastle meetings and I have Alan Dean coming up to deliver a session on the ASP.Net MVC Framework Preview. I am looking forward to Alan's visit and seeing if he can convince me about MVC as I am still not convinced - it looks too much like old asp to me :o.
Details of the session:
Alan will be providing an introduction to the new ASP.NET MVC Framework Preview and, by way of association, usage of some new .NET 3.5 features such as LINQ. The talk will cover the MVC design pattern in outline, and demonstrate usage of the ASP.NET MVC Framework itself with a simple RESTful application
Alan Dean has been a professional developer for more than a decade, primarily in the retail sector, and is currently a Senior Technologist at Charteris. An unconventional thinker, he has been involved in REST and the semantic web for 7 years. He is also a committed extreme programmer and one of the Alt.Net UK Conferences organisers.
Location: Castle Gate, Melbourne Street, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, NE1 2JQ, GB

I look forward to seeing you there! Also I have some good sessions in the plans for Newcastle for the rest of the year. If you are based in the North East and attend user group meetings and would like to see a topic covered, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
