Many developers begin their experience with MVC by working with Action Methods, Controllers, Razor Views, and the other essential components of MVC. This is a great place to start, but as the complexity of your projects increases, you may require a deeper understanding of how the framework works internally. You'll also need to understand how MVC integrates with the larger .NET platform. This course, ASP.NET Core: The MVC Request Life Cycle, empowers .NET developers with a better understanding of the MVC pipeline. First, you'll examine how an HTTP Request is processed by MVC and .NET Core as it travels through the framework. Next you'll examine what components are involved at each stage, how they interact with one another, and in some cases how you can customize the default conventions. Understanding how the components of MVC process a request can be extremely helpful on various levels. Finally, you'll learn about how troubleshooting and debugging can often be much easier if you understand what's going on behind the scenes. By the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of the framework, which will help you build better applications using it.
