WM Day of .Net May 10, 2008 - I'll be there!

Yesterday I drove to Grand Rapids for the West Michigan Day of .Net.

I enjoyed the event, despite suffering from heartburn most of the day,

Here is a brief summary of the best sessions I saw

How to Architect Rich Internet Applications

Microsoft architect Josh Holmes gave an overview of what makes up a good rich internet application and when you should attempt to build one.

Getting Started with the ASP.Net MVC Framework
Tim Wingfield of Quick Solutions discussed the MVC framework.  This one had a lot of code samples.

A trip around the block with Rhino.Mocks
This session (led by Quick's Steve Hartman) was more like a roundtable discussion than a presentation.   Steve went through some definitions; stepped through a code sample; then started a discussion with the attendees about different Mock frameworks.

Reliable Messaging in WCF
James Bender of Quick Solutions gave this demo which also contained some good code samples.

A similar event is scheduled next Saturday in Cleveland.   I doubt I'll make that one, but I plan to attend the recently-announced Lansing Day of .Net scheduled June 21.
