WHO: Kathleen Dollard is Technical Evangelist for Digital Folio. She has been a Microsoft MVP since 1998 and has given hundreds of speeches around the world. She has worked extensively with compositional architectures in relation to specific development platforms. Her experience includes HTML5/Javascript, Silverlight, and WPF in both C# and Visual Basic. She’s interested in making core .NET technologies available to all coders to enable them to write better software faster. Her newest adventures include Windows Azure and SQL Azure. Kathleen is also a long-time advocate of generative techniques and is the author of Code Generation in Microsoft .NET (from Apress). She has published numerous articles on a range of .NET technologies. Kathleen is active in the Northern Colorado .NET SIG, the Denver Visual Studio User Group, and the Northern Colorado Architect's Group. Twitter: @kathleendollard | Website:

TOPIC: MEF offers a great tool for composition and MVC offers an extensibility model designed for composition. Combining these two demonstrates a great composition design with nearly unlimited flexibility conditionally exposed as you need more features within MVC. You’ll learn how to use dependency injection (DI) to componentize tasks following single responsibility principle for more robust and testable applications. You’ll see how MVC uses custom model binders, value providers, validators, and filters. You’ll see these techniques used to pull almost all code out of the website project, giving you full flexibility in how you organize your website’s code. You’ll also see generic base classes that allow extensive reuse of controller logic and reuse of page elements. This challenging talk offers something for everyone – deeper insight into composed systems using DI, details about MVC internals, and some serious MEF examples.

PADNUG July Meeting
Intel Ronler Acres RA1 Auditorium

Chris Goldfarb Chris Goldfarb is a dev for the Intel Information Technology group, and has been writing software for 14 years. .NET has been Chris' main focus since the pre-beta bits were released, and has both developed applications and trained others on the framework. Chris has presented software engineering topics at technical conferences such as the Microsoft Professional Developer's Conference, Intel Developers Group and the Portland Area .NET User Group, which he founded.

He has held positions as board member of the Intel e-Business Group .NET Taskforce and the Technical Infrastructure committee of the International .NET Association (INETA). Chris is Microsoft Certified in .NET and has been Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) in Visual C# for 4 years.

Prior to joining Intel in January 2001, he engineered mission-critical applications for the United States Air Force, United States Strategic Command. Primarily using Java, C++, and Ada, these applications included early-warning, ballistic missile flight path, and nuclear readiness assessment systems.

MEF?!? Another 3-char acronym out of Microsoft? What is it and why should you care? How does it help deliver extensible applications? How is it different than traditional IoC containers, and what are some scenarios where you would use one over the other, or even both at once? How do you use MEF, and what are some potentials gotchas and considerations for implementation?

In this session learn all this and more. In fact, since nothing beats writing code to learn, bring a laptop with VS2010 RTM installed and help me build a composite application in real-time!
