Find out in less than 4 minutes the Top 5 Reasons to ditch Web Forms and move over to MVC already!

#1: Testability– MVC provides true separation of concerns, and makes it easy to test the whole application from Unit Tests to Coded UI Tests.

#2: Instant Pages – Get your admin pages up and running faster than ever with improved scaffolding. Don’t get bogged down doing Create, Edit, Update, Delete.

#3: Better HTML Markup Control – Every layer of obstruction creates new problems down the track. When so much development now involves jQuery or other javascript libraries, MVC simplifies development by putting the developer back in charge of the HTML that is actually rendered.

#4: Simpler Debugging – This means that instead of complicated Webform lifecycles, your code either goes into the Route, Controller or View, so you can jump right into coding without an intimate knowledge of the page lifecycle.

#5: Mobile Support – With Adaptive Rendering, MVC allows the same User Interface to Render on Different Devices, so users can check it out on their PC, their Tablet or even their Smart Phone.

    Great video.
    For me, #6 would have to be routing. It’s always been *possible* to do SEO-friendly URLs and decouple your incoming URLs from pages of content but few developers understood this. With MVC routing, site developers are finally breaking away from the mindset that URLs point to pages.
