You’re not a programmer, except when you need to be. Maybe you’re a web designer who’s heard that ASP.NET lets you separate code from design and produce browser-specific code automatically. Maybe you’ve heard that ASP.NET lets you create more functionality with less work. But all the ASP.NET books you’ve seen have buried you in detail. Where’s the ASP.NET book for you? Here.
ASP.NET for Web Designers is brash, funny, and full of plain English-language metaphors and analogies. Serious programmers may not have time for it. But if your background lies elsewhere, this book will teach you all the ASP.NET you’re likely to need.
Peter J. Ladka starts by introducing enough object-oriented concepts and VB.NET and C# programming to get you rolling. He walks through basic ASP.NET techniques such as Request and Response; building reusable user controls for user interfaces; and working with server controls (including rich, built-in server controls such as AdRotator, Calendar, and ASP.NET’s validators).
Once you’ve mastered the basics, he presents extensive coverage of retrieving data with ADO.NET and using server controls to display that data. You’ll also find accessible chapters on state management and forms-based security, plus just enough XML coverage to whet your appetite. Throughout, there are plenty of downloadable code samples for both VB.NET and C#. Use them as a starting point, and you’ll be halfway home. Bill Camarda
