Attended Microsoft MVPs Open Day 2015 in Bangalore

It was another year I attended Microsoft MVPs Open Day event in Bangalore, last time it was in Goa.

||For those who don’t know what MVPs Open Day is

Every year Microsoft MVP Award Program organizes an event dedicated for MVPs only. In such event MVPs gathered together from different cities (South Asia MVP region includes India, Nepal, Bangladesh etc countries). Such events feature technical sessions designed to enhance the community's understanding of new Microsoft products, existing tools and new techniques. But MVPs like me don't come to learn just from Microsoft teams, we present during Open Days, which allows MVPs to
   i) share real-world knowledge of Microsoft technologies aka "MVP to MVP" sessions
   ii) network with fellow MVPs in person and this helps understand community more closely
   iii) enjoy with fellow MVPs

I had a great time with MVPs and Lead. I would like to thank Biplab and Gandharv for organizing this event beautifully.

MVC Bind Attribute like [Bind(Exclude = "Name")] or [Bind(Include = "Address, Payment, EmailID")]

When we have an ASP.NET MVC View that accepts user input and posts those inputs to a server we have the option to use the built-in Model-binding features to provide more control and security, we can restrict the properties that are allowed to be bound automatically.

The name 'Scripts' does not exist in the current context

There is a very small bug in the MVC 4 Empty Template that can be seen when you create a new MVC 4 Application with an "Empty" template and start adding views for CRUD operations (using scaffolding). And when you run the application and try to navigate (to http://localhost:port/controller/Create or http://localhost:port/controller/Edit) in "Edit.cshtml" and "Create.cshtml" views, you get the following error:

Entity Framework Console Applications with SQL Server Compact

Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition is an embedded database system that allows us to integrate it in our Web, Desktop and Mobile applications.

Entity Framework's Database Seed Method

The Entity Framework can automatically create/update/drop databases when the application runs. We can specify that, this should be done every time application runs or only when the model is out of sync with the existing database or in other word it runs whenever model changes. You spent time to insert records in database and when you made any changes in model, Entity Framework deletes your database as well as records.
