Overview

The Weekend Crash Course series consists of 30 sessions over a period of three days. Each session is designed to take 30 minutes to complete, so the Crash Course is an intense 15-hour learning period beginning on Friday evening and ending on Sunday afternoon. Naturally, readers can adapt their learning to whatever schedule best suits their needs.

Active Server Pages 3 Weekend Crash Course is written to meet the needs of the reader who is new to ASP. However, through the use of carefully constructed roadmaps at the beginning of each session as well as pre- and post-assessment software on the CD-ROM, the book is also quite accessible to the reader who already has some knowledge of ASP.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Clear the calendar this weekend, and master the art of creating dynamic websites with ASP. All you need is a recent copy of Windows (ideally Win2K, in a pinch Win9x/Me will do) -- and a copy of Active Server Pages Weekend Crash Course.

In four half-hour sessions on Friday evening, you'll set up your ASP environment, create a basic website, and write your first ASP code. Saturday morning, you'll review the basic HTML you need to generate the dynamic pages you'll be creating -- lists, tables, and so forth. You'll process user input, send responses, then construct slicker responses using strings, variables, and data tables.

Have lunch; then return on Saturday afternoon for a primer on generating numbers and dates; using decision structures and loops to build applications that make decisions based on user input; and retrieve additional user information. After dinner, you'll create a simple database and write some equally simple queries.

Sunday is application day: You'll create a complete online organizer application, complete with modules for managing contacts, events, notes, links, and tasks. Pretty remarkable, considering that 48 hours ago, you didn't have a clue.(Bill Camarda)

Excellent book I would highly recommend. As a professional software trainer I needed to add ASP to my skill set. Already a moderate VB programmer and more, I found it an excellent read and overall easy to use. Had a few trouble spots but what do you expect when reading book vs. live training. The 15 hours is not realisitic. It took me more like 35-45 hours. But - this is still excellent since I feel very confident in my new skills -- Great job Eric.
