I have Visual Studio 2013 so I figure I'll start there and lean on the Intellisense crutch until I get a feel. I am trying to find my way around Visual Studio 2013 and, specifically, trying to build a basic MVC web app and get up to speed.
File | New | Project | Templates | Visual C# | Web | ASP.NET Web Application | MVC ...
Poof! 278 files in 120 folders. Seriously.
ViewBag.Title = "Contact";
I have not met this @ and that is a challenge, but there are surely lots of other things like it. Where can I get an overview of what all the files are for and what these far-from-self-documenting notations are? BTW, I did figure out the $ in JQuery.
I am still looking for a general roadmap. The secret about files starting with _ being wrappers of a sort, for example. All the secret names like App_Code. I am stumbling over them but I feel like there ought to be a big list so I will be able to tell what all the files in my sample project do. Any idea where I might learn all those arbitrary things?
