Asp.net MVC RC1
Started a new project last week at work and we’re using asp.net MVC for this. So I was pretty happy this morning to see the RC1 release :). Better break stuff now than later on when it’s a lot further on it’s way. It seems the team also focused on making visual studio even better to use with mvc, adding a lot of stuff to make navigation between views and controllers easier etc..
Another big change is that you views no longer need code behind ! TBH this was just a useless file, only used to declare the model you were using for the view. Very good decision. Luckily it’s backwards compatible so I don’t have to change everything I made so far.
Here are some of the blog announcements:
- Scott Gu’s blog
- Visual Web Developer Team Blog on the changes / addition in VS 2008. You can even use controller and view code generation templates now.
One of the things I really like about MVC is how easy it is to incorporate jQuery and ajax stuff into your web pages. It’s so much nicer than the old asp.net way of doing things !
