Learn ASP.NET MVC 5 step by step

What is MVC ?

MVC (Model view Controller) is the separation of model, view and controller — nothing more, nothing less. It's simply a paradigm; an ideal that you should have in the back of your mind when designing classes. Avoid mixing code from the three categories into one class.

Model - The lowest level of the pattern which is responsible for maintaining data. It is responsible for managing the data of the application. It responds to the request from the view and it also responds to instructions from the controller to update itself.

View - This is responsible for displaying all or a portion of the data to the user. A presentation of data in a particular format, triggered by a controller's decision to present the data.

Controller - Code that controls the interactions between the Model and View. The controller is responsible for responding to user input and perform interactions on the data model objects. The controller receives the input, it validates the input and then performs the business operation that modifies the state of the data model.

Why to choose MVC ?

  • Option to separate your presentation part (views) from your application logic.
  • Easy to test and maintain application.
  • Clean View Markup (no additional HTML emitted).
  • Gives responsive UI by default.
  • Supports URL routing for SEO friendly URL.
