What's New in ASP.NET MVC 2: MVC Matures

Microsoft will release a new version of ASP.NET MVC with Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET 4.0 in April. MVC is still a relatively new product, but it has matured quickly with heavy input from the community, and with the new release it provides an even more compelling alternative to ASP.NET Web Forms. During this AppDev Live Learning event, we'll explore the most interesting new features in MVC and how you can put them to use in great applications. You'll learn about the new model validation system and the validation summary, templated helpers that let you associate edit and display elements with data types, expression-based helpers, areas that let you divide a Web application into multiple projects, data annotations that let you attach metadata attributes to control validation, and more. These new features let you build much more robust MVC applications than before, so join us and learn how to put this maturing technology to good use.
