T4 Templates

with Eric Cockrell


The Text Template Transformation Toolkit (or T4) has been around since Visual Studio 2005. In this presentation we will begin with the basics of creating a T4 template, how to create multiple files with a template, and then look at some examples of how T4 templates are used in Asp.Net Mvc projects, ORM creation, and WCF.

Speaker: Eric Cockrell
Technical Lead at Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group. Eric has worked in software development since 1983, working for such companies as Amoco, United Video / TV Guide, Williams/ChoiceSeat, Dollar-Thrifty, and USIS/HireRite. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Technical Education from Oklahoma State University in 1983. Eric has been building web sites since the days of the Mosaic browser.
Today he regularly uses Asp.Net MVC and WordPress to create web sites. In his spare time Eric plays hockey; enjoys backpacking trips; designing and creating jewelry; and writing for his blog (http://erictopia.com), or hitting the beaches of Hawaii. He has been married for 22 years and his daughter and son attend the University of Tulsa.


What? Another room change? Yup, we quickly filled the last room at OU so we requested a room change. We will meet in November in the same building but in room 231.

We need your help. There are many people that have signed up on our site (www.tulsadevelopers.net) but have not signed up for this newsletter. Please let them know about us moving to the new location. They can sign up for the newsletter using this link.
