June 15, 2004, 1:00PM-2:30PM Pacific Time
Brian Noyes, Principal Software Architect, IDesign, Inc

The User Interface Process (UIP) application block provides a rich framework for developing stateful, process-oriented user interfaces, either for Web or windows applications. It allows you to decouple the views of your application using and implementation of the Model-View-Controller pattern provided by the application block. Ideal for applications such as shopping carts, registration, questionnaires, online quizzes, and other single flow or multi-path information gathering applications, the UIP is a complex framework that is very easy to use. This webcast will step through the architecture and capabilities of the UIP application block and demonstrate when and how to employ it for both web and windows applications.

Blocks have been gaining momentum as their values to developers are realized, but in reality development is only half the equation to shipping a product. The other side is that of Test. In this Webcast we will drill down and examine how to test blocks.

[Editor's note:  Looks like someone is taking a shortcut in the description here.. I assume that the webcast is on how the Application Blocks are tested. Sandy recently blogged [1] about the new guidance that the PAG folks are putting together on this and the related GotDotNet workspace..]
