VAN: Castle Monorail, Active Record and Brail talk at Wednesday 8PM CST (-5 GMT), by yours truly.

Last week I did a talk on Windsor and it went..ok. I’m not used to online presentations and am more experienced in front of crowds that I can interact with.

So between last week’s experience and some advice from Agile Joe this talk I’ll be aiming for more of a screen cast feel.  The talk should go for close to an hour and will be open for questions afterword.

Outline is as follows (subject to change):

  • Monorail
  • Controllers
  • Windsor integration
  • Grouping controllers (“Area’s”)
  • Aspect Oriented Programming through Filters

  • Brail View Engine
  • Conditionals and Iterators
  • Parent/Child Views
  • Sub Views
  • Rescues

  • Active Record
  • Architecture overview
  • Using multiple databases
  • Using Active Record in a more DDD friendly way
  • Introduction to writing queries in HQL
  • Working with the underlying ISession.

If any of you have the time drop by for some/all of this and give me some feedback please do so.
