If you, like me, have become a big fan of ASP.Net MVC then you’ll be happy to know that MVC 4 has just hit the beta.
Ever since MVC 4 hit CTP I’ve been hanging out for the closing date for the final release…it’s not here just yet, but at least it’s hit beta.
Obviously the support for mobile devices and HTML5 has been on the forefront of the teams delivery list and one of the features that enables this across a range of clients (that’s browsers, mobile devies etc) is the ASP.Net Web API.
With this release it’s also obvious that a lot of work has gone into learning material as it’s available from the get-go.
Of course, web forms (or classic ASP.Net) isn’t dead…as a web developer there’s so much innovation happening out there that it’s almost impossible to keep track of everything.
Scott Hanselman, who’s probably one of the most known (next after Scott Guthrie of course) ASP.Net team members has this to say..
Letter from Scott Hanselman
Don’t think of ASP.NET as an island. It’s a citizen of the larger community. More and more of ASP.NET is open source, and we push hard every day to stay open and be open. We want to make ASP.NET more pluggable, more open, more fun. We’ve got big things planned – some that will surprise you. I hope you’ll join the conversation and the community.

Being and ASP.Net MVP it’s easy for me to get excited about what’s coming up…oh boy!!!
