Model-View-Controller (MVC) is an architectural pattern used in software development to separate the user interface, data, and control components of an application.

The Model represents the data and the business logic of an application. It’s responsible for fetching and updating the data.

The View is the representation of the data, typically presented to the user through the user interface.

The Controller acts as a bridge between the Model and the View, receiving user input and using it to update the Model or manipulate the View.

By separating these components, the MVC pattern makes it easier to maintain and extend an application over time, as changes to one component can be made without affecting the others.
