Last week I shared here on the Developer Connection that I've started on this adventure of blogging 30 days in a row, all with the intent of giving you, the readers, exercises in the neighborhood of 10-15 minutes a day. It's shaping up to be a good introductory lesson plan that you can consume at your own pace.
So far in the series I've shown some of what can be done when you pair things from both camps together. A little bit of MVC and a little bit of Bootstrap can give you a very rich UX. There have been some bigger examples of everything working together, then some background minutia to help fill in the blanks. In the last 7 days I've covered forms, Create actions, basic model binding, TempData and Bootstrap alerts.
We're over halfway through the month and still going strong! Over the next 7 days I'm going to demonstrate novel ways to augment your site and leverage Bootstrap to it's fullest extent. Of course, we'll also zero in on the oft-overlooked features of the MVC Framework as well.
Here are the posts from the last seven days:
Enhancing Our Views
- Day 11: Realistic Test Data for Our View
- Day 12: Implement Search Using Inline Forms and AJAX
- Day 13: Standard Styling and Horizontal Forms
- Day 14: Bootstrap Alerts and MVC Framework TempData
- Day 15: Some Bootstrap Basics
- Day 16: Conceptual Organization of the Bootstrap Library
- Day 17: Free Training For All the People!
