Discussion on: MVC Tutorials Are Broken

In general, tutorials are broken, at least from the student point of view. They show a single solution to a problem that may have different trade-offs, which are swept under the rug. They put the student into the mentality of "this is how it's done". That's rarely the case in a complex business environment.
Not to mention the speed with which they become obsolete, or how they introduce bad practices on the emitting side, and cargo cult programming on the receiving side.
