10/9/2014 Meeting
An overview of ASP.NET vNext (John Petersen) - John Petersen

By now, you have heard there are many changes contemplated for ASP.NET. For over a year, Project Katana (K) and the Open Web Interface for .NET (OWIN) has been discussed. Soon, that work will culminate in what is being referred to today as ASP.NET MVC 6. John will share with our user group how ASP.NET vNext works with Visual Studio 2014, how OWIN relates and how we can all get started learning this new platform.
John Petersen has been developing software for over 20 years. It all started when, as a staff accountant, he was asked to get involved in a system upgrade to replace an old IBM Series 1 computer (about the size of a large refrigerator!). Those first programs were written in Clipper, summer ‘87. Since that time, John’s tools included dBase, FoxBase, Visual FoxPro, and Visual Basic. An early adopter of .NET, he then decided to go to law school. After practicing law for a few years, John realized that technology was a lot more interesting than the law. Today, John focuses on ASP.NET development and is having more fun than ever solving for clients. An 11-time recipient of Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professional Award, John is a current ASP.NET/IIS MVP. John is also an ASP, C# and Azure Insider & an ALM Ranger. John is the author of several books and is a frequent contributor to CODE Magazine and DevProConnections magazines, and is an author for Pluralsight. John holds a BS in Business Administration from Mansfield University, an MBA in Information Systems from St. Joseph’s University and a JD from the Rutgers School of Law – Camden.
