Our very own Damian Brady took the stage at the DDD event in Brisbane to talk ASP.NET MVC

Mobile devices like tablets and phones are quickly becoming the primary way people access the web. So why are so many sites still not designed for them?

With ASP.NET MVC, it’s easier than ever to literally put your website in the palm of everyone’s hand. MVC 3 has many features that allow you to target mobile devices with different layout and even content. The recent developer preview of MVC 4 makes things even easier.

In this demo-heavy session, we show how quick and easy it is to create new MVC sites using the great Visual Studio tooling and Entity Framework 4. We’ll look at some different techniques and third-party libraries that make targeting mobile devices easy, and we’ll touch on ASP.NET MVC 4 and what it brings to the table.
