Looking for Opinions on ASP MVC

I am studying it now, and it's a complete reversal from standard MS development. Much more code reliant than visually reliant.

I'm not a developer though I have taken a lot of development courses in Java, C#, ASP, PL/SQL, and now ASP MVC.

So, what do you all think about ASP MVC? What is the job market like for it?

2. Model View Controller

Based on the design pattern of the same name. It's MS new approach to designing web applications. Represents a departure from using ASP.NET forms.

3. Long Time MS Developer Here

Job market - very good. More and more ASP.NET-related job posting mention/require MVC.

I like it with one notable exception- MVC scaffolding.

Basically the scaffolding tool gens views based on models. The models are usually directly related to the underlying data tables.

So scaffolding creates views (User Interfaces) that are drill-down nightmares for users to use.

I am a developer. But I am passionate about UX (user experience). In the vast majority of applications, users do not view their data in the same way a normalized data source is organized.

So I say use MVC but skip the scaffolding. Design the view to represent the user's understanding of the data - this will likely require the use of view models, a fourth layer designed to represent the data in a user-centric way.

My opinion....

4. Thanks for your input

I'm trying to move back into web development. I work in an entirely different field. I am concluding a ASP MVC course and next summer, I'll take some Apache, MySql, and PHP courses.

I am a PMI certified PM, and I'm going for my SCRUM certification as well. Ultimately, I want to be a Project Manager in Mobile/Web Dev.
