University of Turku in collaboration with Lindorff Oy offer a code camp focusing on building enterprise web applications using the ASP.NET MVC web application framework and jQuery. ASP.NET MVC 3 is the leading framework for professional scalable web applications. During the camp, students are familiarized with a modern IDE and to the framework. As a result of the camp, students are expected to create a small, working application. The development will be carried out by student teams during the intensive week.

A student can credit the course DTEK8069 Special Course in Software Engineering: Modern Internet Frameworks or another corresponding course with the camp. The course is open for the students of University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, and Turun ammattikorkeakoulu. Students, who participated in Codecamp: Vaadin & Social Media, can also take part to Codecamp: ASP.NET MVC & jQuery.
The course if offered as 3 ECTS and 5 ECTS versions. In a shorter course, the participation and successful completion of the programming project in the intensive week is required.

Codecamp is a one-week intensive course. The first day contains lectures and hands-on tutorials.

The projects are demonstrated and evaluated during the last day of the course.
