The Talk

Everybody seems to rediscover the MVC model, and new frameworks seem to appear all the time. Most of those hide the richness of the web. Come discover OpenRasta, a very opinionated framework that help you write MVC-style web applications and data services, using a unified API.

The Speaker

Specializing in cutting-edge tools, from REST architectures to occasionally connected rich clients, Sebastien has been developing with .net since 2000. An out and proud restafarian, Sebastien is the creator and maintainer of the OpenRasta project.

The Venue

We are meeting at the offices of Sinclair Knight Merz, 160 Dundee Street, Edinburgh, EH11 1DQ

The Talk

With applying agile methodologies comes changes in many aspects of delivering software. And with any change will come a time when something fails. How to convince the undecided? How to keep everyone calm? How to provide practical solutions to prevent people from reverting back to non-agile practices at the first roadblock? Through examples gathered from personal experience and the community, we’ll explore ways to prevent the boat from sinking at the first spilled glass of water.
