Editor's Playlist: ASP.NET MVC - 24 Hours to MVC Mastery

By Fritz Onion on October 11, 2012

This week's editor's playlist covers the increasingly popular ASP.NET MVC framework. With the increase in client-side capabilities because of HTML5, CSS3 and advanced JavaScript libraries like backbone.js, jQuery, and knockout.js, using ASP.NET MVC as

your server-side Web framework is even more appealing. It removes much of the clutter associated with WebForms and gives you direct access to requests using the well-known Model View Controller pattern. It also makes it trivial to create Ajax endpoints for your client-side calls, all as part of the same controller implementation.

This learning path progresses through the core features of ASP.NET MVC, finishing with the latest features of the ASP.NET MVC 4 release and a pair of end-to-end courses that show you real-world examples of building modern Web applications with ASP.NET MVC.
