ASP.NET MVC has been received by a certain part of the development community with an almost zealotry aspect, and by others with extreme speculation and even fear. As a web forms die-hard, it took Miguel a while to eventually get to MVC, but the truth is that he really does like it. No, he doesn’t think it is the end-all to web development and he still has a lot of love for web forms, but the more he uses ASP.NET MVC, the more he gets used to it. In this session, Miguel will introduce you to the platform, and by providing frames of reference with web forms, hopefully providing you with the pluses and minuses of both platforms.

You will learn:

  • Intro to MVC
  • Comparisons of its components to WebForm components
  • Advantages and disadvantages of both
