ASP.NET MVC 2 => 3 => 4: Lessons Learned

In this session, you’ll learn how the Boston Code Camp website was migrated from MVC 2 (model-view-controller) to MVC3 using Razor syntax and from there to MVC 4. We’ll examine the use of Entity Framework Code First and Migrations for the data model. We’ll also look at the change from the Membership model for authentication to Claims Authentication. If time permits, we’ll also touch on the changes involved in moving to hosting with Azure Cloud Services, and the use and current limitations of Azure Web Sites.
