You don't have to be a .NET developer to work with MVC. To start off, get acquainted with MVC widget basics and try out developing one yourself. To support you in your first steps in MVC, we provide you with comprehensive documentation and samples.
We highly recommend that you create all your new functionality with MVC, following Sitefinity CMS development best practices for improved productivity. For now, you can continue working in your existing projects with both Web Forms and MVC widgets. You can gradually refactor towards pure MVC.
Sitefinity CMS is focusing on becoming an MVC-first platform. For the time being, however, Sitefinity CMS will continue to support the Web Forms model. We highly recommend that you can create all new functionality with MVC.
The code for all built-in MVC widgets is open source and you can find it in the GitHub repository. You can use the code to learn the basics of how to develop models, views, and controllers of your own, or simply customize the built-in widgets.
