Overview

Learn how to build impressive ASP.NET 2.0 Websites in both C# and VB from scratch.

Using a practical step-by-step approach, the authors introduce the ASP.NET framework, teach you about database design, and walk you through obtaining, installing and configuring all the freely available software you need to use ASP.NET 2.0. They then show you how to build several real world Web-based applications that you can put to use instantly in your projects.

Readers will learn how to:

  • Develop a fully functional Corporate Intranet with a dynamic navigation menu
  • Create an email newsletter system using ASP.NET 2.0
  • Build web forms using web controls, validation controls, and rich controls
  • Program in both C# and VB
  • Handle unforseen errors gracefully using a range of error handling techniques
  • Secure applications using form authentication
  • Use code-behind to streamline code.

    This book doesn't force you to choose an ASP.NET language in advance - all code examples are presented in both C# (pronounced see-sharp) and VB. You can choose which one you want to use, and follow-it throughout the book. Best of all, this book doesn't assume any prior programming knowledge!

    What The Reviewers Say...

    "This is a very well written book and an excellent overview and introduction to developing websites in C#/VB.NET on ASP.NET 2.0." - About.com

    "This is the kind of book most of the developers will be looking for not only to learn the technology faster but also to create and develop a real application in a short span of time." - ASP Alliance

    "This is not your grandfather's ASP.NET 2.0 tutorial. It is not condescending, pretentious, stodgy, or deadly boring; rather, it is fresh, fun, even exciting; and, it does not take itelf too seriously. The topics flow logically from one to the next. The layout is approachable. The writers' tone is friendly. And, the writing style makes the material very accessible. I have yet to find a better book for Web development novices." - C# Online .NET

    The description of this book tells the reader that they will learn about how to connect their e-commerce site to PayPal, and build intranet sites. Uh... None of this is present in the book. It is a good book for beginners, however.

    I am going to get my money back on this, because the reason why I bought this book was for this description: Readers will learn how-to: Build an ecommerce store that supports multiple products Intergrate PayPal¿ credt card processing into an online store Develop a fully functional Corporate Intranet with a dynamic navigation menu. THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NOTHING anywhere in the entire book about any of this.
