Mark Rendle Minimalist Web Development with Nancy and Simple.Data
Traditional .NET development frameworks tend to be big, and cover all possible eventualities, and for many projects this is A Good Thing. But for just as many, if not more, projects, a full web stack like ASP.NET or a complex ORM like Entity Framework or NHibernate is just overkill, and adds unnecessary complexity. This is A Bad Thing.

In this talk, I'll look at a two small, lightweight, low-ceremony frameworks, and how to use them to create applications with less code, less cruft and fewer maintenance headaches. For web applications, we'll follow the super-duper happy path of Nancy, .NET's answer to Ruby's ultra-lightweight Sinatra framework. And for data access, we'll use my own Simple.Data library, to provide ORM-like syntax without the code generation or sluggishness.

Using these tools, in under an hour, we'll create a working version of the VoxPop site (the full version of which will be active for future DDD events).
