MakerShop Website and MVC 4

I’m making a new site meant for Makers to connect with others and market their stuff. On the technical side I’m using MVC 4, which is my first attempt at using MVC for a real project and not just tinkering with it. Previously I made everything using ASP.NET Web Forms and so it took a few hours spread out over a couple of days to warp my brain into MVC mode. After it “clicked” I’ve been implementing functionality in a better programming experience than Web Forms. MVC seems like a more direct concept for making dynamic websites because of the routing semantics that make the URLs readable and the helper methods use this syntax to do a lot of the dynamic work for you, like the ActionLink.
