MVC 3 is the newest web architecture from Microsoft. It moves beyond the limitations of WebForms, embraces open source and JQuery, and is built with a core ethic of extensibility. Because it’s a new technology, the talk will start with an introduction to MVC and its potential benefits for your projects. One of the strengths of MVC is extensibility and you’ll see how to use the built-in features to decouple controllers and models. Another key aspect is reuse through custom html helpers, partial pages, and a common layout – similar to master pages in WebForms. You’ll see how to leverage these features to minimize the code you must write. Along the way, you’ll learn a little about JQuery and the Managed Extensibility Framework.
