Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday July 12 will be “A crash course in MVC with FW/1”, with Steven Neiland.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

There are a lot of articles on architecture design dealing with MVC out there but most are really intellectual discussions that really are not much help for developers who are new to the whole concept. By leveraging the ease and simplicity of framework one I hope to demonstrate how to actually create a MVC application from scratch and outline some basic guidelines as to do’s, don’ts and if when’s.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it’s not mandatory and it’s not a commitment. But there’s no need to RSVP if you can’t make it let alone explain why you can’t. With over 2,800 members, no worries. 🙂

ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here , you’ll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title,  saying, “Export”, which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That’s a default that meetup.com has chosen, which I can’t change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
