About the Book

You're a developer who knows nothing to ASP.NET MVC. Which is fine, except that you need to start coding your next application using ASP.NET MVC 5.

Don't worry: I have you covered. I've been training hundreds of developers like you during years, and converted my experience into this book. I know from experience teaching what takes more time to learn in ASP.NET MVC, and will spend time only where appropriate.

Read this book, and you can code your ASP.NET MVC 5 application using Visual Studio 2015 within a week. Or your money back.

Printed paperback version available here.

About the Author

Arnaud Weil
Arnaud Weil

Arnaud Weil is a born developer: when he was a kid he was controlling his electric train using an Atari ST and some self-made electronics, then as a teenager created and distributed worldwide one of the first Web browsers for some of the first pocket computers, when the Web was just beginning. In fact, he loves coding.

Turning a passion into a career, Arnaud has been coding all kinds of applications from factory tools to smartphone applications to house control solutions. His status as a freelancer allows him to help his clients with many different projects.

But what Arnaud enjoys most is helping other developers: that's why he teaches, speaks, and writes books.
