Here are the links and resources for my cfmeetup presentation on MVC with FW/1.

Presentation Description

There are a lot of articles on architecture design dealing with MVC out there but most are really intellectual discussions that really are not much help for developers who are new to the whole concept.

By leveraging the ease and simplicity of framework one I hope to demonstrate how to actually create a MVC application from scratch and outline some basic guidelines as to do's, don'ts and if when's.

Thanks Steven - good information yesterday and it's good to see an example app that demonstrates several of the framework's features.

Hi Steven, I stumbled across the recording of this presentation earlier and I must say this is the BEST FW/1 preso I've seen yet! I like the "real world" code samples you use, the step by step walkthru of each piece of the framework. So far most of the presos I've seen have used too much "hello world" code for my tastes (that's a pet peeve of mine). Your presentation makes it much easier for new folks to see how and when to use different features of FW/1. Nice job sir! :)

I just watched your fw1 presentation and really enjoyed it. I have been a ColdFusion developer for many years without being attached to a specific framework. I finally chose fw1 as my primary framework not only because of its simplicity, but also muraCMS uses it as well. I want to thank you for the explanation.

Thank you for the sample code. The adobe connect screen resolution isn't great so I appreciate being able to peruse the sample code you referenced in the cfmeetup.

I'd like to learn Framework 1 but I need to have examples and I think your application could help me to have a better practical example. Thank you.
