Main Topic Description: The ASP.NET MVC Framework provides a powerful Model View Controller (MVC) approach to building web applications, and provides separation of concerns, increased testability, control over HTML output, and intuitive URLs. We will start by looking at building a model framework with LINQ to SQL, including validation and model binding. Then, we’ll explore a custom generics-based repository and services implementation. Finally, we’ll tie it all together with a look at Views and jQuery.
