ASP.NET MVC Framework Unleashed is now published and available at your local bookstore and Amazon. I devoted over a year of my life to writing this book. At over 700 pages, this book is one of the most comprehensive books on Microsoft’s newest framework for building web applications.
All of the code samples are included in both the C# and VB.NET programming languages in the text of the book. You can download the source code from the book by visiting my publisher’s website at:
You can download a single file that includes all of the code or you can download the code chapter by chapter. Just click the Downloads tab at the website.
I had a lot of help writing this book. Charlie Poole — one of the primary developers behind the very popular NUnit unit testing framework — helped me with the chapters on test-driven development. And Scott Guthrie provided much appreciated encouragement while writing the book (Scott managed to get his MVC book out a month before mine while being a vp at Microsoft – Scott just scares me).
The book is targeted at developers who have no background in MVC, test-driven development, unit testing frameworks, or mock object frameworks. The goal is to provide you with enough context so you can understand the motivation behind Microsoft building the ASP.NET MVC framework. My hope is that if you are an ASP.NET Web Forms or an Active Server Pages Classic developer then you’ll find the book to be a good onramp into the MVC world.
