In essence, this project provides a jump start for any new project based on the ASP.Net MVC framework saving hours of set up and configuration.
It encourages what we consider to be best practices development, modern HTML5 semantics, responsive design for mobile device support and has a comprehensive unit testing suite. Using .Net MVC Boilerplate allows a project to be kick started in seconds and provides not only a useful set of default functionality but a great guide to some of the best development practices we have picked up over the years.
By making the project open source we hope other developers will be able to make use of the project, learn from our experiences and also contribute back to help evolve the project further.
