This unit provides practice in object oriented programming and methodology using advanced features of ASP.NET MVC. This unit is aimed at students with some programming background in an object orientated language. Model-View-Controller (MVC) is a modern software architecture pattern that allows for code reuse and separation of concerns, and provides new way to develop ASP.NET Web Applications. Building upon MVC framework, a deeper investigation into technologies such as C#, HTML, CSS, Web, HTTP, JavaScript, Databases and Object Relational Mapping will be undertaken. Application development using ASP.NET MVC will also involve the use of professional Content Management System to construct complete, real-world sites.
