Greenfield projects are great. Laying down features in a brand new code base is motivating, and teams can be very productive without old, legacy code slowing them down – until the new code starts slowing them down because the new environment wasn’t set up properly. This common pitfall happens time and time again – developers are productive, but then velocity starts to slow. This session outlines and demonstrates the absolutely critical items that must be part of a good iteration 0 (zero) in order to set up a new web application using ASP.NET MVC 5.2 properly. Failing to address any of these foundational elements happens too frequently and can be disastrous to a project. Attendees will come away from the session with practical example code and proven design patterns for getting started with a new MVC 5 application.
