During my MVC presentation Adam asked me a question that I hadn’t ever checked into. What alternatives to Model View Controller (MVC) are there? I spent some time looking around and found a great blog post about the majority of the alternatives to MVC. After looking around MVC is still the de facto standard for the majority of applications and frameworks. Microsoft is the major exception by using Model View Presenter (MVP) and Model View ViewModel (MVVM) for their patterns.
