Guest Speaker Session at MAJU

Today I invited at MAJU for a guest speaker session and asked to present something on design patterns. I chose recently released Microsoft ASP.Net MVC framework as topic for this session. Session went excellent, some really nice question popup from students and we had very good discussion on that. Unfortunately, I don't have any picture of lovely audience at the moment. I will try to get one and publish here later. I am planning to make a post on same topic for my blog (just pray I could do!) but my presentation for session is available for download at http://mqpasta.googlepages.com/ASP.NetMVCFramework.pptx . Update: Code uploaded at:  http://mqpasta.googlepages.com/ MVCWebApp.rar

Due to this, people become furious and they reacted oppositely A chain of email including v
