Building ASP.NET MVC 2 Applications Using Visual Basic 2010: Volume I

ASP.NET MVC is a fascinating technology that provides an alternative to Web forms for building Web applications. Instead of building pages using server controls that provide relatively little control over the HTML they produce, MVC gives you complete control. The course starts with an introduction to ASP.NET MVC and the Model-View-Controller pattern on which it is based. You'll learn about the main differences between MVC and Web forms applications, and see how to build a simple MVC application with Visual Studio. Then you'll explore each of the three main components of an MVC application. Next, you'll explore models, which encapsulate the data and business rules of an application. You'll learn that there are almost no limitations in how you provide data to an MVC application. Then you'll get into views, the user interface of an MVC application.
This course assumes that you are familiar and experienced with Microsoft's .NET Framework and ASP.NET development tools. You should be familiar with Web development and understand how HTTP and HTML work to produce Web pages for the user. You should have experience writing applications with ASP.NET 3.5 or later Web forms, and be familiar with how ASP.NET processes page requests, and have strong experience with .NET Framework 3.5 or later programming. You should have experience with Visual Studio 2008 or later for building Web application projects. Experience with building database applications using these tools will be helpful, although not strictly necessary.
