Beginning ASP.NET Using C#

Overview

ASP.NET is the latest incarnation of Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) - a powerful server-based technology, designed to create dynamic and interactive HTML pages for your Web site, or corporate intranet. ASP.NET also constitutes a core element in Microsoft's .NET vision, providing web-based access to an immensely powerful new development environment, .NET; in this respect alone, it's a great leap ahead of all previous versions of ASP.

Overview

ASP.NET is the latest incarnation of Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) - a powerful server-based technology, designed to create dynamic and interactive HTML pages for your Web site, or corporate intranet. ASP.NET also constitutes a core element in Microsoft's .NET vision, providing web-based access to an immensely powerful new development environment, .NET; in this respect alone, it's a great leap ahead of all previous versions of ASP.

This book will provide you with a step-by-step introduction to ASP.NET using C#, with plenty of worked examples that will help you to gain a deep understanding of what ASP.NET is all about, and how you can harness it to build powerful web applications.

Wrox has published two editions of Beginning ASP.NET, one presenting code samples in C#, the other in VB.NET, with sample downloads available in both languages.

This book covers:

  • Creating basic ASP.NET pages
  • Learning the basics of C#
  • Understanding the concepts of Object Oriented Programming
  • Working with Data and XML
  • The ASP.NET Server Controls
  • Creating User Controls and Components
  • Exploring the world of Web Services
  • Configuring your ASP.NET Applications
  • The future of VoiceXML technologies, including VoiceXML 2.0

This book is aimed at relatively inexperienced web builders who are looking to enrich their sites with dynamically-generated content, and want to learn how to start building web applications using ASP.NET. Developers who have a little experience with previous versions of ASP (and are looking to move over to ASP.NET), may also find this book helpful in getting a simple grasp on what ASP.NET is, what it does, and how it can be used.

Experience of basic HTML is required, but previous experience of ASP is not essential. We'll be teaching the basics of C# in this book, so prior experience of C# is not required.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
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)

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced software, computing, and networking products and services. He served for nearly ten years as vice president of a New Jersey–based marketing company, where he supervised a wide range of graphics and web design projects. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies®, Second Edition.
