Topic 2: Designing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications

The goal of topic is to introduce students to the typical design process that architects must complete when they plan an MVC 4 application. At this stage in the design process, MVC 4 has been selected as the most appropriate programming model, but the details of the application, such as the overall architecture, Controllers, Views, Models, and routes to create, have not been fixed.

The goal of this topic is to enable students to structure a web application in such a way that users can rapidly locate the information they need. Two aspects of the design are emphasized: the URLs presented in the browser address bar should be understandable and can be controlled by adding routes to the ASP.NET Routing Engine, and the navigation controls, such as menus and breadcrumb trails, should present the most relevant links to frequently read pages. Search Engine Optimization is important throughout this topic.

Topic 9: Building Responsive Pages in ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications

The goal of this topic is to describe to the students how partial page updates and caching can optimize the responsiveness of a web application. Students will see how to make use of AJAX helpers and partial views to update small portions of a page instead of refreshing the entire page.
