Overview

Teaching ASP.NET in a non-linear format that creative thinkers can easily grasp and understand without the typical programming jargon. Provides clear and concise, hands-on, real-world examples right from the beginning of the book. The book contains a natural progression by providing foundational information in the opening chapters. Content will be presented with "hands-on" examples so the opening chapters will also be laying the groundwork for more advanced subjects by not only presenting the information but by writing code as well. The middle section of the book covers the key cast members on the .NET stage including HTML Controls, Web Controls and List Controls. The third and final section of the book covers more advanced issues in ASP.NET including data access and security issues.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
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

Meet the Author

Peter Ladka is the Chairman and President of Nexus Media Inc., a web development firm located in New York that focuses on providing businesses with advanced database-driven web applications. Nexus Media was founded in 1997 after Peter's years of servicing clients as a freelance graphic designer. As Ladka directed the business' focus on web application development, annual revenues have increased in excess of 500%. This concentration has also brought Nexus Media into the national spotlight as a leader in web application development even showcasing its talent on web sites and conference for companies such as Macromedia. As part of Nexus Media's focus, they stay committed to being on the forefront of web application technology. This led to their involvement in Microsoft's ASP.NET technology at a very early stage. Nexus Media had been part of the beta program for ASP.NET, and have been developing test applications throughout in an effort to saturate themselves in this exciting technology. This is their strategy for being a leader in offering ASP.NET web applications from day one of its release. They expect to be fully prepared for a more widespread acceptance of ASP.NET. Because Peter originated from a "designer" background and then migrated to web technologies in the course of his company's existence, he feels that he has experienced the very pathway that the readers of this title will be traveling. This provides him with the unique advantage of having a like paradigm with the reader, something that he feels is invaluable.

    Great for the web designer and non-codeheads

    If you're not a pure programmer and more of a 'do it all' designer then this book is very helpful. Got me up to speed with ASP.NET quickly with useful examples. Covers most things the web designer would need in making ASP.NET pages. Provides code in both VB.NET and C# so you can pick your flavor. All books should do that.
