The simplicity that is the Asp.Net MVC

Today I was browsing my list of RSS feeds and I stumbled upon a posting that showed some Asp.Net code.  This code was nothing out of the ordinary, it was simply someone building a table with a repeater. 

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the markup for the repeater was

'WOW, that looks like crap.  Cannot believe anyone likes that markup'

After about another 2 seconds looking at the code I realized how I loved the simplicity of Asp.Net MVC and how its markup is simple, clean and only shows you what is important.

Sure my the markup and lines of code needed by the MVC framework is really no less in total number.  But is 100% cleaner in my opinion. 

I am sure this line of thinking is nothing new to many of you, but I guess it never dawned on me.

Till next time,

I agree and can hardly wait for it to come out of beta.

It's almost like the first changes 8 years ago. ;-)

Isn't it great while the rest of the country is shouting "Yes We Can" for Obama, us developers are shouting "Yes We Can" for MVC.

I totally agree! It's actually nice to see what you write in your views is what actually gets displayed in the view source. So nice to have so much control as well.

Most of use would obviously agree.  I'd be curious what markup you saw though.  Can you post?
