Introduction

It's a great time to be an ASP.NET developer!

Whether you've been developing with ASP.NET for years or are just getting started, now is a great time to dig into ASP.NET MVC. ASP.NET MVC has been a lot of fun to work with from the start, but the last two releases have added many features that make the entire development process really enjoyable.

ASP.NET MVC 3 brought features like the Razor view engine, integration with the NuGet package management system, and built-in integration with jQuery to simplify Ajax development. ASP.NET MVC 5 continues that trend, with a refreshed visual design, mobile web support, easier HTTP services using ASP.NET Web API, easier integration with popular sites with built-in OAuth support, and more. The combined effect is that you can get started quickly with full-featured web applications.

This isn't just drag-and-drop short-term productivity, either. It's all built on a solid, patterns-based web framework that gives you total control over every aspect of your application, when you want it.
