Meet the Author

Chris Hart works full-time as a developer at Trinity Expert Systems Plc, based in Coventry (UK), where she’s worked on several major .NET, SharePoint, and CMS applications. She enjoys having a job where she gets to learn and play with new technologies on a regular basis, often working on-site with customers.
She’s been using .NET since the pre-Alpha days, and yet still enjoys the fun of working with beta software.
Chris lives in Birmingham (UK, not Alabama) with her extremely understanding husband James, as she tries to fit writing alongside her hectic job and her attempts at gardening. She collects computers in much the same way as some old ladies collect cats.
Chris Hart contributed Chapters 3–5 and 11 and Appendix C to this book.

John Kauffman was born in Philadelphia, the son of a chemist and a nurse. He received his degrees from The Pennsylvania State University, the colleges of Science and Agriculture. His early research was for Hershey foods in the genetics of the chocolate tree and the molecular biology of chocolate production.
Since 1993, John has focused on explaining technology in the classroom and in books.
In his spare time, John is an avid sailor and youth sailing coach. He also enjoys jazz music and drumming. In addition to technical material, he manages to read the New Yorker magazine from cover-to-cover each week.
John Kauffman contributed Chapters 1, 2, 7, and 8 and Appendix D to this book.

Dave Sussman is an independent trainer, consultant, and writer, who inhabits that strange place called beta land. It’s full of various computers, multiple boot partitions, VPC images, and very occasionally, stable software. When not writing books or testing alpha and beta software, Dave can be found working with a variety of clients helping to bring ASP.NET projects into fruition. He is a Microsoft MVP, and a member of the ASP Insiders and INETA Speakers Bureau. You can find more details about Dave and his books at his official Web site (www.ipona.com) or the site he shares with Alex Homer (http://daveandal.net).
Dave Sussman contributed Chapters 6, 9, 14, and 15 and Appendix E to this book.

Chris Ullman is a freelance web developer and technical author who has spent many years stewing in ASP/ASP.NET, like a teabag left too long in the pot. Coming from a Computer Science background, he started initially as a UNIX/Linux guru, who gravitated toward MS technologies during the summer of ASP (1997). He cut his teeth on Wrox Press ASP guides, and since then he has written on more than 20 books, most notably as lead author for Wrox’s bestselling Beginning ASP/ASP.NET 1.x series, and has contributed chapters to books on PHP, ColdFusion, JavaScript, Web Services, C#, XML, and other Internet-related technologies too esoteric to mention, now swallowed up in the quicksands of the dot.com boom.
Quitting Wrox as a full-time employee in August 2001, he branched out into VB.NET/C# programming and ASP.NET development and started his own business, CUASP Consulting Ltd, in April 2003. He maintains a variety of sites from www.cuasp.co.uk, his “work” site, to www.atomicwise.com, a selection of his writings on music and art. The birth of his twins, Jay and Luca, in February 2005 took chaos to a new level. He now divides his time between protecting the twins from their over-affectionate three-year-old brother Nye, composing electronic sounds on bits of dilapidated old keyboards for his music project, Open E, and tutoring his cats in the art of peaceful coexistence, and not violently mugging each other on the stairs.
Chris Ullman contributed Chapters 10, 12, 13, and 16 and Appendix B to this book.

I'm migrating from classic asp to ASP.NET 2.0 and thought this book would help. It did more than that some chapters were a refresher on topics I hadn't explored in a while but other chapters demystified asp.net 2.0. The 'How it Works' and 'Try it Out' features at the end of each topic are especially helpful. If you are beginning or migrating then this book will help you.

I struggled through the first 9 chapters (half the book) and gave it up because I was spending too much time dealing with errors, some trivial and some serious. The book takes a 'cookbook' approach with lots of examples and exercises, and undocumented errors.
