|Topic: ||Behavior Driven Development From The Trenches |
|Description: ||There has been a lot of talk about test-driven, acceptance-test-driven, behavior-driven, anything-you-can-think-of-driven development lately. I will talk about behavior-driven development, how it relates to and encompasses some of these practices. I will show you the tools related to BDD, and how they help you code and design always with the customer's requirements in mind. Then I will actually show you how to get started with BDD on the .Net (specifically C#) platform. You should walk away from this session arm http://twitter.com/tibor19 ed with enough information to get you started towards tested code that really nails what the customer needs. |
|Topic: ||MVP: The Power of MVC in Your Web Forms Projects |
|Description: ||You have heard of MVC for ASP.NET, but your company isn't about to rewrite everything in MVC (and they shouldn't). So how can you get the goodness and maintainability that MVC brings within an organization that is not even considering MVC? Model-View-Presenter is the answer. The MVP pattern allow you to get the maintainability and testability that MVC brings and lets you do it within an organization that has no intention of moving away from web forms anytime soon. |
