Ubuntu & .NET MVC

Mar 15, 2013 and Mono Develop have come a long way; it's not only reasonable to run/develop .NET MVC on linux, it's damn near preferable.

Install Mono & Mono Develop

UPDATE April 13, 2014: Installing the latest Mono and Mono Develop is much easier than it was in 2013. It's as simple as following this:


To run your applications from Mono Develop you need to install xsp4

sudo apt-get install mono-xsp4 

Database Agnostic

Run you application on MS SQL Server, Mysql or Postgres.

Just in Case

Off chance you have compile error related to "WebApplication.targets", look at my solution on this stack overflow ran on linux, nginx and mysql... before I moved it to jekyll.. and then moved to middleman. :)
