Putting ASP.NET MVC in Context

  • Adam Freeman


ASP.NET MVC is a Web development framework from Microsoft that combines the effectiveness and tidiness of model-view-controller (MVC) architecture, the most up-to-date ideas and techniques from agile development, and the best parts of the existing ASP.NET platform. It is a complete alternative to traditional ASP.NET Web Forms, delivering advantages for all but the most trivial of Web development projects. In this chapter, you’ll learn why Microsoft created ASP.NET MVC, how it compares to its predecessors and alternatives, and, finally, what’s new in ASP.NET MVC 5 and what's covered in this book.
