AgiliTrain Logo

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, I talked about why I used MVC to create my new venture and how I implemented MVC.  In this third part, I will talk about data entry and validation.

Building AgiliTrain: Part 2 - MVC in Action

In Part 1 of this series, I talked about why I used MVC to create my new venture.  In this second part, I will talk about how I implemented MVC.

When I decided to implement MVC, I was very new to it so there is some code in the site that reflects that.  The later code and the code I've gotten around to refactoring is much cleaner, but working code is working code.
