Orchard - A good way to learn MVC 3 ?

Jan 1, 2011 at 8:01 AM

Hello,

I've been learning about MVC for a while now. I understand all the basics and for example understand everything about the nerd dinner application. Now I would like to learn more about MVC and I am wondering if working my way through the logic and concepts of the Orchard application is a good way to do this.

Has anyone else used Orchard to further their knowledge of MVC?  Any tips / advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Richard

Orchard is not your typical MVC application. You will probably learn stuff, but not necessarily stuff that you could/should reuse in other MVC apps.

The jQuery and jSon features, etc.. are currently not being used within Orchard nor any examples, for as far as i know it.
Take a look at client side validation.
