That's a nice set of TLAs (Three Letter Acroynyms) 😊
I think MVP might be Model View Presenter and also it is used as Minimum Viable Product (in Agile lingo). I followed you on YouTube and I will check out your videos there. Will you follow me there too. I'm just getting a start there and trying to create videos from my book content Learn HTML, CSS & JavaScript Volume 1 and Volume 2
