SSDotNet Meeting Feb. 12th / Dependency Injection by Bobby Johnson

Please join us Thursday, February 12th, to eat pizza and enjoy a informative presentation by Bobby Johnson on Dependency Injection: A Beginners Guild to Why Ninjas Are Awesome

Special thanks to Alliance Enterprises for providing pizza.

Presentation Summary This presentation will describe the core concepts of Dependency Injection (DI), first described by Martin Fowler in his article Inversion of Control (IoC) Containers and the Dependency Injection Pattern.

The presentation will highlight the benefits of Dependency Injection including:

  • Creating classes that are easier to unit test in isolation
  • Promotes loose coupling between classes and subsystems
  • Adds potential flexibility to a codebase for future changes
  • Can enable better code reuse

Bobby will also be sharing simple and fun examples on how to use DI along with a real world example of its use in a web-based application.
