Overview 

MVC (Model-View-Controller) now comes to ASP.NET too. As Scott Gu says "If you are looking to build your web applications using a MVC approach, I think you'll find this new ASP.NET MVC Framework option very clean and easy to use.  It will enable you to easily maintain separation of concerns in your applications, as well as facilitate clean testing and TDD." Scott has written a series of blog posts on this new addition to the ASP.NET family. Read them:

Note: However, please do not blindly use MVC pattern for each and every website that you create. Like most of the design Patterns, the MVC has its own disadvantages like performance hits and writing extra code.Make sure you dont take the pain without a reason. 

Again, MVC model is only an additional model/approach to develop ASP.NET applications and not a replacement for the existing rendering ASP.NET framework.

United States United States
The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.
 
The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
