Real World MVC Architectures

So you have drunk the kool aid and decided that MVC applications are a better way to build your web applications, kissed goodbye to a page based architecture and learned to love JQuery.

From here on everything is just gravy, right?

As ever with would-be silver bullets you have bought off one set of problems but are now at risk from another set.

In this presentation Ian Cooper will talk about his experience from building MVC applications for the last 2 years, discussing gotchas like the Fat Controller and God Service, and asking what a Front Controller is and why it might mean you fall in love with the command pattern.


Ian Cooper has over 15 years of experience delivering Microsoft platform solutions in government, healthcare, and finance. During that time he has worked for the DTi, Reuters, Sungard, Misys and Beazley delivering everything from bespoke enterpise solutions to 'shrink-wrapped' products to thousands of customers. Ian is a passionate exponent of the benefits of OO and Agile. He is test-infected and contagious. When he is not writing C# code he looks after the London .NET user group - http://www.dnug.org.uk - which he founded.
