You will learn about the famous MVC design pattern which stands for Model-View-Controller. This pattern is widely used in software engineering and many people talk about it, but few people know how to use it properly. You will learn, in an easy way, the MVC pattern in just 1 hour !

Many programmers still develop software systems without following any pattern or architecture. You will see that the MVC pattern isolates the business logic from the user interface, and makes it easier to manage complexity of application through the separation of concerns.

Several commercial and non-commercial web application frameworks have been created that enforce this pattern, for example: ASP.NET MVC, Apache Struts, Spring MVC, Cake PHP, and many more. Therefore it is very important that you understand the MVC pattern before working with any framework that follows this architecture.

This course was created to be fast, objective and easy to understand. It is not tiresome for students like most of the courses about design patterns.

Having received a diploma in Motor Vehicle Studies at Cambridge Regional College (1994-98) and worked as a automotive technician up until 2001, my career path has somewhat changed over the years.

I was recruited by a Civil Engineering company where I worked with oil, fuel, and waste management systems before moving into the field of Construction, working as a hands on Project Manager,

In 2012 I decided that a new challenge was in order and enrolled on a course in 'how to teach English as a foreign language'.

I now instruct English to professionals and business owners in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
