ASP.Net MVC3 - Awesome Links

Posted 07 December 2010 - 07:51 AM

I'm going to start collecting and sharing any great information I find on ASP.Net MVC3. Hopefully a mod can sticky this thread that way we can easily find it.

As you all know I'm very fond of MVC and after seeing MVC3, I have to say that I enjoy the direction it's heading. Cleaner code, less chances of bugs and best of all easy to modify.

Here are some good links:

The new @model keyword in the Razor Engine.


Using Layouts in the Razor engine. Is Microsoft trying to leave MasterPages behind?


This website is called Dimecasts and all of their videos are around 10 minutes long. Here are the MVC ones:


This is a complete MVC2 application designed to introduce you to everything you might need to know about creating your first ASP.Net MVC application.

Implicit and Explicit code nuggets with Razor:

Explicit content block syntax:

No, Layouts are simply Razor's equivalent to WebForms' MasterPages. :)

Just so it is well remembered:

Knowledge of ASP definitely helps with learning MVC (I had none). Most of my experience has been in C#/VB.Net Winforms applications, but over the last year I have been learning MVC 4.5/5 (C#) with the occasional ASP thrown in. Here is a not so ordered list of links I was using to gain experience with when I started out:

Great websites for learning ASP.NET web development:


Resources recommended by a fellow Developer for learning ASP.Net:

  • W3 Schools: This site has been around for a long time, has great tutorials in all aspects of web development, not just Microsoft stuff. The best thing about it is that the tutorials have actual windows where you can try out code examples, and can see in realtime the results of what you do. I’d start with the ‘Web Pages – Single Pages model’, then move on to the ‘Web Forms – Event Driven Model’. You can skip the MVC model unless you just really want to know about it, but most State of Missouri web development will be with Web Forms for some time to come
    Link: http://www.w3schools.com/aspnet/
  • Microsoft’s ASP.NET : This is another great starting spot, and is also divided by coding model. Good jump-starts, and includes videos. I’d go here after completing the tutorials at W3Schools.
    Link: http://www.asp.net/get-started
  • The Code Project: Although not strictly an ASP.NET site, this site includes a lot of great resources for learning it, downloadable sample projects, and full tutorials. The only downside to this site is that a lot of the tutorials are written by people who are not native English speakers, and the text in the tutorials can sometimes be challenging to follow. But still some great material here.
    Link: http://www.codeproject.com/
  • 4 Guys From Rolla: This is an awesome site that has been around for a very long time. A group of graduates from University of Missouri at Rolla created this site while still in school, and it’s now one of the world’s best tutorial resources. The tutorials here go into much more technical depth than many other sites.
    Link: http://4guysfromrolla.com/
  • DevX: One of the best forum sites for programming of all types on the web. The administrators of the forums are Microsoft MVP’s, as well as recognized professionals in other technologies as well. Unlike many other forums, pros will answer your questions very quickly, and ridicule of new folks is not tolerated, although if you ask something before you search for it, you will be told to Google for it. They also won’t answer questions that look suspiciously like homework assignments. They also host a lot of good tutorials, too.
    Link: http://www.devx.com/
  • Channel9: Video-based tutorials and introductions to new technologies. These guys do things in a talk-show format, often interviewing the guys who actually created the technologies. Microsoft uses this site a lot of times to test market presentations that they will later give at development conferences – so the material is very good.
    Link: http://channel9.msdn.com/
  • ScottGu’s Blog: Scott Guthrie, Corporate VP for development at Microsoft uses this blog to introduce new .NET techniques and technologies as Microsoft rolls them out. I’ve seen a lot of good code demos on this blog too.
    Link: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/
  • Youtube: Believe it or not, you can find a lot of decent (and also a lot of very bad) tutorial videos on many ASP.NET topics just by searching them on Youtube. The content is getting better and better all the time, although many videos there scratch the surface as a way to help a tutorial writer advertise for their paid tutorial site. Still worth a look.
    Link: http://www.youtube.com
  • Stack Overflow: A great community forum site for asking technical questions, this site has become the top site for this type of thing on most search engines as developers have flooded into it. It can take a little time to get answers to your questions, and they don’t tolerate asking questions that have already been answered, so you need to search the content first to make sure your question is not already there. But otherwise, great resource.
