Looking at all the Stack Overflow architecture details posts, I understand SO is built with asp.net mvc 3 framework. If so, please could someone explain me how the URLs relate to the asp.net views?

For example: this url [http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4610101/source-control-bitbucket-and-assembla]

What is "source-control-bitbucket-and-assembla" part in the url? Is it one of the parameter to the controller method?

It's the title of the question... –  animuson Sep 8 '12 at 6:31
The name part in the URL is for SEO purposes only; the actual lookup is done using the numeric ID. However, the name part is checked as well and a header redirect performed if it doesn't match the current name –  Pëkka Sep 8 '12 at 6:32
...and the URL of this very question would be so much better if its title was more meaningful! –  Arjan Sep 8 '12 at 7:38
