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,
