It is my pleasure to speak tonight at the SEVDNUG about extending ASP.NET MVC. This talk grew out of an impromptu talk I gave at Desert Code Camp 2011.2. The speaker didn’t show for a class titled “Real world MVC”, so I took it and ran with it.
In this talk we’ll look at some common and some less-common extension points for ASP.NET MVC:
- Route Constraint
- Html Helper
- Action Filter
- Value Provider
- Action Result
- Model Metadata Provider
- Dependency Resolver
The goal is to keep your code DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself), and many of these tools make it much easier to centralize cross-cutting concerns.
Grab the code and slides we’ll work with from here.
