The Edinburgh Comedy Festival Portal - from scratch!

The Edinburgh Comedy Festival Portal allows over 500 acts to submit, describe and schedule over 11,000 performances for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It is currently being revised using .NET 4.0 technologies. This talk will go through the strategy and architecture behind the new implementation. It will cover topics including:

ASP.NET Code Contracts Interfaces Test Driven Design User Controls Encapsulation User-Centred Design


Richard Jarmain has been an IT and systems consultant for much longer than he can actually remember. After well over a decade of being employed for dry, business-oriented intranet and desktop applications, he offered to help out at the Pleasance, the largest venue provider on the Edinburgh Fringe.

This talk is the result of his experience working together with the Pleasance, redefining the process for acts and producers to get their information into the Fringe and Comedy Festival brochures, each read by a million people, and onto the Fringe and Comedy Festival websites.
