For our August meeting, Aaron Torgerson will present on building HTTP-friendly web apps in C# with Nancy. Nancy is a lightweight, low-ceremony, framework for building HTTP based services on .NET and Mono. Nancy is an open source web framework for .NET that uses the Ruby Framework "Sinatra" as its inspiration. (Get it? Frank Sinatra's daughter is Nancy Sinatra.)
