Presented by Dino Esposito
April 29, April 30, May 1 @ 8pm ET
In the busy world of technology, you barely have time to learn something new because you’re so busy dealing with the technology you've already got. Wouldn’t it be great to take control of your learning? But when? Your days are already spoken for.
Welcome to Tech After Dark!
This trio of sessions from renowned trainer Dino Esposito will give you a deep understanding of the options and technologies available for architecting web solutions. Sessions meet for about an hour over the course of three nights. You can watch the sessions at the scheduled time, or review on anytime for 60 days after the conclusion of the final session.
You will learn:
- The options available today for building web solutions.
- The role that each ASP.NET technology plays today and how each can help you.
- What you need to do optimize your web pages for classes of devices, including smartphones and tablets.
- Twitter Bootstrap: make your pages responsive to different screen sizes.
Who should attend? Open to any current web developer, and this class would also be interesting to technical managers. Not necessarily suitable for beginners, but if you’re a quick learner and have some web programming experience, then you're welcome to join even without ASP.NET experience. Overall level is intermediate.
Session 1: Today’s Web Alphabet Soup – Tuesday, April 29th @ 8pm ET
When it comes to planning web solutions using the Microsoft stack, you have the following options available: ASP.NET Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC, or different flavors of Single-Page Applications. Whatever archetypal solution you opt for, you have the problem of defining the SDK of your application as a set of publicly callable HTTP endpoints. This is where Web API fits in. In this session, we'll step into each option and examine the state of the art.
Session 2: Five Best Practices for Every Web Solution – Wednesday, April 30th @ 8pm ET
The continuous evolution of the web is defining a new set of best practices. In this session, I’ll examine several best practices starting with the ideal layout of a web page, which includes scripts, CSS and meta tags. Next I'll cover bundling, display modes, application layer, and use of the Twitter Bootstrap library for cross-device rendering and advanced user interface features such as modal dialogs.
Session 3: Planning Multi-Device Web Sites – Thursday, May 1st @ 8pm ET
More often than not making a website barely usable from devices is mistaken for providing an effective mobile experience. It’s no longer the time of a simple mobile versus desktop dichotomy. You have two options to address devices: you can simply make your site responsive at the page layout level or you can serve different views for different classes of devices. Not all sites can afford plain HTML-based responsiveness; in some cases, you need to plan ad-hoc views for some types of devices and need ad-hoc tools for that.
Dino Esposito is a trainer and consultant specializing in web, social, and mobile integrated architecture and effective code design principles and practices. He's the author of Programming Microsoft ASP.NET 4 and Programming Microsoft ASP.NET MVC3 (Microsoft Press).
