Demystifying NuGet (Level: 200)
NuGet is the new standard way to get code libraries. In this session Mohamed goes from basic get-package examples to more to creating packages, local / intranet package stores, resolving version conflicts for packages you want to get or create, using PowerShell, Package Explorer, and NuGet gallery authoring options.
Through the session, Mohamed answers questions like: When to update the same version of the package or add another? How often should your NuGet package be updated and should you use source code trunk? How much documentation, samples, or configuration code should the package have (using config file transformations and code templates)? How to interact with projects (like creating pre/post build steps)? And when to use source code packages instead of packing assemblies? The session involves a discussion about particular popular packages scenarios, like SQLite, and NHibernate.
The Extreme Power of Razor View Engine (Level: 200)
The session starts by comparing Razor to different ASP.NET MVC view engine options like webforms and Spark, and stating which purposes each fits best. After knowing what the options are, Mohamed goes into the specifics of Razor, how to do markup templates in different ways, and, the unique constructs that Razor adds to the mix for mixing inclining text inside Razor code blocks other than simple &’text’ tags.
Mohamed will also discuss different options for packaging Razor code like helpers and functions, the pros and cons of each. Since the power of Razor isn’t just useful for HTML, Mohamed also shows how to use Razor for content types JS files, covering intellisense and routing for them, and the difference between using Razor in ASP.NET MVC and in ASP.NET Web Pages (Web Matrix and Visual Studio ASP.NET Razor projects).
