File -> New Project

In this talk, Jonathan will show you how to take advantage of some built in features of Visual Studio to enhance and simplify your work flow when creating a new project in Visual Studio.
We’ll be using PowerShell, Less, Code Templates, and more to reduce the time it takes to get a new MVC project up and running just the way you want it, instead of spending hours cleaning up after Microsoft.


Jonathan Peterson has been a web applications developer in the Upstate since 2008. He has worked the full stack of web development from UI design and implementation to client side technologies like JavaScript, jQuery and HTML5 to server side technologies including VB6, VB.Net, C# and SQL server. In a previous life Jonathan worked as an IT tech setting up domains and networks, as well as general sales and support.

Jonathan is the owner of Paladin Cloudware, a full service IT company. Jonathan is always looking for new and exciting projects to tackle, if you’re in need of a contract developer.
