Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Mar 3 will be “Simple MVC with FW/1”, with Daria Norris.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
We hear a lot about Model View Controller (MVC) and how we should use it in our applications, but how do you apply this practically in your code? Framework One provides a simple way to use MVC without overwhelming you with features you don’t know how to implement. This presentation will show how you can take your existing spaghetti code and turn it into a robust application.

This presentation will go over the basics of MVC and why FW/1 is the perfect solution for that. I’ll then provide demo code of converting a simple CRUD spaghetti app into FW/1. No object oriented experience required.
