ASP.NET transforms Microsoft's Active Server Pages into an extraordinarily powerful environment for building both web applications and state-of-the-art web services. Whether or not you've worked with either ASP or C#, Beginning ASP.NET Using C# will help you start building significant web stuff with ASP.NET -- quickly.
You'll start by understanding the anatomy of an ASP.NET page and what makes ASP.NET hugely more powerful than any previous version of ASP. Then, using plenty of example code, the authors introduce Web Forms and HTML Server Controls; introduce the fundamentals of the C# language; and show you how C#, ASP.NET, and the rest of the .NET platform fit together.
There's detailed coverage of working with data and XML, using ASP.NET Server Controls to streamline validation and other time-consuming development tasks, and creating user controls and components. You'll find chapters on web services development, ASP.NET application configuration, effective code reuse strategies, and finally, optimizing the performance on ASP.NET code (which, since it's compiled, should already be a lot faster than what you're accustomed to).
By the way, if you're thinking "hey, sounds perfect, except I'm a VB programmer," Wrox conveniently offers a VB.NET version of this book: Beginning ASP.NET Using VB.NET. (Bill Camarda)
