MM .NET On-Line Workshop

January 25-27, 2011

This COMPLTELY NEW in-depth workshop takes you through the process of designing and building a fully functioning real-world MM .NET application. You will learn best practices and advanced techniques as you take a system specification, create a business object model (including business processes), write unit tests then create a robust WPF, Web Forms and Silverlight front end for the application. 

This hands-on class is taught by Kevin McNeish, Eight-time Microsoft .NET MVP recipient, INETA Speaker and Chief Architect of MM .NET.

If You Can't Attend the Class--Just Purchase the Recording
We are using Camtasia to create high-quality recordings of the entire training class. Even if you can't attend the live class, if you sign up for the class you will still get the full recording which you can review at your leisure. Students who sign up for the class but do not attend are free to attend another one of our on-line regular MM .NET classes any time in the future.

Planning the Construction of a .NET Application



One of the keys to successful application development is proper planning for the construction phase. This session introduces the concept of User Stories to help define and plan the construction of your .NET applications. User Stories are also examined in the light of application development processes, with particular emphasis on using SCRUM for your projects.



Creating a Business Object Model



In this section of the class you take a software specification and create business objects that represent the static structure of classes in the application and assign them attributes and responsibilities. You will also define business rules to enforce constraints specified in the specification. You will examine the use of class diagrams as well as the MM .NET Business Layer Generator and Microsoft's Entity Framework for generating your business objects and data access layer. you will also see how to best work with different "shapes" of data.




Creating Business Processes

In this session you will create higher level business processes that call the services of business objects to support the requirements of the application. You will learn how creating business processes supports Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) principles.




Unit Testing

In this session you will write unit tests that will ensure your business processes, business objects and data access layer are functioning properly outside the context of a user interface. You will learn about the test-first approach as well the creating unit tests on existing code.




Creating a WPF
User Interface

In this session you will create a Windows Presentation Foundation front end from which you will access your business objects and business processes. You will learn about design patterns such as Chain-of-Responsibility, Model-View-Controller, and Observer which will be used in subsequent UI sessions




Creating a Web Forms User Interface

This class section provides an in-depth look at building a Web front ends for your application. This includes information on programming in the stateless environment of the Web as well as using MM .NET business objects and entity objects in your Web applications.



Creating a Silverlight User

This session demonstrates taking advantage of MM .NET's integration and extensions for Silverlight 4 and RIA services to build a compelling, rich internet application.



How it Works
The live training class is broadcast directly to your company using Citrix's All you need is a computer with a high speed internet connection and a phone, or you can use VoIP with a headset and microphone. During each training session you simply connect to the training seminar via the internet and you see the trainer's computer in a window on your machine. If multiple students at your company want to take the class (Note: Each participant must pay for the class) you can simply hook up a projector to your computer so everyone in the room can see. As the trainer steps through presentations and uses Visual Studio to create and execute code samples you see it all as it is happening.

For audio hookup, you call into the specified phone number and join a conference call where you can hear the trainer and vice versa, or you can use VoIP and connect with a headset and microphone. To minimize disruptions, you can post questions in a chat window for the instructor to answer.


  • You save the usual costs of airfare, hotel, food, and rental car to attend a class
  • You save travel time to and from a training location
  • You get a recording of the entire training class!

The class runs for three days, from 11am-5pm Eastern each day


The cost for the class is $999 per student, but if you take advantage of our early-bird specials you get the early bird price of $799 per student. Note that if you have multiple students taking the training, each student must pay for the class. In addition to the class registration fee, the number you call for audio hookup is a toll number, so you will be charged on your phone bill at the regular rate of your long distance provider. If you use Voice-Over-IP or if you have free unlimited long distance calls, then the call is free.
