ASP.NET Review

This programming language is fast but in converting your MVC existing files is difficult.

Valuable Features:

1. No ViewState or "surprise crap". 2. Faster server-side. 3. Simplified model for multiple related views. 4. Unit testable.

Room for Improvement:

1. Difficult to convert an existing site. 2. Not best for SEO out of the box. 3. Challenges if you’re not running IIS7.

Other Advice:

If I needed to build a new site from scratch, and was able to use IIS7, it would be extremely likely that I would choose ASP.NET MVC. It’s a joy to work with (possibly because it’s "new"), and just makes sense. If I needed to work with an existing site, I would certainly have to consider the pro’s and con’s I mentioned above. ASP.NET MVC gives us an amazing new tool in our huge Microsoft toolbox.
