The biggest problem for developers moving to MVC is not being able to use a lot of the Web Forms knowledge we've already spent so much time learning. This presentation will take the developer from something they already know ASP.NET Web Forms and move them into MVC utilizing the knowledge they already have for Web Forms. We will go over how a request makes its way into MVC and how to utilize some of the fantastic MVC features to do common tasks such as URL routing, Data Binding, AJAX, and more, comparing where we can to how a task in Web Forms vs. MVC.

You will learn:

  • How to create a new MVC project without any reliance on web forms.
  • How to implement validation, data binding, routing, and ajax
  • The equivalent of common web forms features in MVC
