Summary: We talk briefly about what we have discussed so far, and the importance of the MVC model. The model is to manage the data, the controller is to interact with the user, and the view is to display the data. Then, we started by creating a new empty project. This project does not have any controller. So if we run it without adding anything, we end up with an error message. From the error message we started making our modifications to get the project to work. We added a method that simply returns a string. Then, we looked at the routing inside Global.asax to see how we can call this method properly. We added a controller with the basic options and saw how the controller will provide us with the method that we need. We also checked the URL and tried to manipulate it to see the different ways of calling the method. In the upcoming video, we will see how to add a view.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
