One of the hot industry trends right now is the movement towards phones and tablets, but many existing corporate websites right now look terrible on those platforms. There are a lot of corporate developers with experience developing on the Microsoft platforms, and MVC in particular. The ASP.NET MVC 4 Framework is the latest in the evolution of Microsoft’s ASP.NET platform, and it contains many new features, including the ability to add some features to support mobile devices.

In this book, you will learn how to build on your existing MVC skills and leverage those new features to create websites using an Adaptive View Design pattern so that they will adapt to the type of device that the user is browsing with, whether that device is a desktop, tablet, or mobile phone, and deliver appropriately formatted web pages that look great on each device!
