In 2007, Microsoft introduced ASP.NET MVC to the world and since then, the framework has evolved into a mature and powerful way of writing dynamic web sites and powerful web applications.

ASP.NET MVC provides a great way of structuring your application, ensuring a clean separation of concerns, easy testability, and ultimate control over markup. It is quickly becoming the go-to framework for writing .Net web applications.

"I feel the love again - Access is back vs. the power user new-comer, Lightswitch" - Adam Cogan

Fifteen years ago, Microsoft Access was the solution for allowing power users to create, update, and modify their database. Some even created monster solutions that ran their entire business. But, as you know, that created a booming industry that spun up to support these mammoth databases. In 2013, what's the best solution for bringing a database to the web so that users can maintain the records?

In this talk, SSW's very own Adam Cogan will look at:

  • Adam will demo his favorite feature in 2013
  • Access Services in SharePoint 2013
  • Lightswitch - HTML 5
  • ASP .NET

  • ABOUT THE PRESENTER
