Summary

ASP.NET MVC 4 in Action is a fast-paced tutorial designed to introduce ASP.NET MVC to .NET developers and show how to apply it effectively.

About the Technology

ASP.NET MVC provides the architecture needed to separate an application's logic and its UI. Because each component's role is well defined, MVC applications are easy to test, maintain, and extend. The latest version, ASP.NET MVC 4, takes advantage of .NET 4 and includes powerful features like the Razor view engine, Web Matrix helpers, and enhanced extensibility.

About the Book

ASP.NET MVC 4 in Action is a hands-on guide that shows you how to apply ASP.NET MVC effectively. After a high-speed ramp up,
this thoroughly revised new edition explores each key topic with a self-contained example so you can jump right to the parts you need. Based on thousands of hours of real-world experience, the authors show you valuable high-end techniques you won't find anywhere else. Written for developers, the book arms you with the next-level skills and practical guidance to create compelling web applications.

You need some knowledge of ASP.NET and C#, but no prior
ASP.NET MVC experience is assumed.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
