In this lesson, we learn how jQuery Validate and jQuery Validate Unobtrusive can be used to add client-side validation that utilizes Data Annotations on the server, preventing the need for a full HTTP Post to validate form submissions. We learn how to enable this functionality, how to make it unobtrusive on our HTML5 using data-* metadata, and how to include these plugins using Nuget.
