From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
With ASP, Microsoft delivered an easy, powerful solution for creating dynamic web applications and pages -- and developers responded enthusiastically. Now, Microsoft is reinventing ASP as part of its .NET framework -- and, as Scott Mitchell puts it, "writing ASP.NET pages is an entirely different experience." The transition is likely to be worth the pain. ASP.NET pages are compiled, supercharging performance; the ASP.NET data caching module helps you eliminate pesky data access bottlenecks; ADO+ is way easier to use; apps are easier to deploy; and on, and on.
In ASP.NET: Tips, Tutorials, and Code, Mitchell organizes a team of ASP experts to probe every nook and cranny of ASP.NET. If you're an experienced ASP developer, this book -- based on the feature-complete ASP.NET Beta 2 -- will give you a great headstart on your next-generation web development projects.
Mitchell's team covers everything from form field input validation to error handling, data presentation to XML support. You'll find chapters on debugging; deployment and configuration; security; performance optimization; and separating code from content. You'll also find plenty of code -- mostly VB.NET, some C#, all of it on the CD-ROM, along with the complete ASP.NET beta it's based on.(Bill Camarda)
