The Objective of the Tutorial
We’ll build a simple web application and along the way we’ll dive in a little detail about each technology. We’ll discuss new concepts as and when they are needed and I’ll attempt to provide plenty of links to additional information, to enable you to further explore and research a little more.
More about the application we’ll build
The application we’ll build is a prototype of the Field Management application, very similar to a real application I built for a start up company. The application will feature the essential elements you will need and find in any line-of-business application.
