I started researching MVC this last week. My 1st stop was the series of webcasts that are on the ASP.NET/MVC site. For me, the best one so far has been the nerddiner. I was surprised on how much of a convention curve there is for even a basic crud site: each controller having their own View folder, the index, Details, Edit, and Create for Gets and Posts. Also, spending so much time in the HTML marketup seems to be a step backward.
On the flip side, I love the prompt to add a test project when you create a new MVC project. That is progress and shows how serious Microsoft has become about TDD techniques. I have to believe there will be a mocking framework in the in the next release of VS (2013?).
