What is Razor?
 A new View engine , parser for ASP.Net MVC.
 Less control characters to make html and code flow
 Easy to learn, based on c#.
 It is split into 3 parts or actors:
 A markup parser (understands basics of HTML)
 Code parser (understands basics of C# or VB.NET)
 A central orchestrator which can mix the two
 These actors work together to parse a Razor document
