ASP.NET offers a new component-based, modular approach to web development that often cuts coding by 50 to 75 percent while offering better speed, better browser independence, easier maintenance, and built-in tools for bread-and-butter tasks like validation. When you think of how dramatically ASP.NET improves on “classic ASP,” it’s a wonder that any of your ASP skills will migrate.
If you’re looking for a really solid road map for moving from ASP and VBScript to ASP.NET and Visual Basic .NET, you couldn’t ask for more than this book. In Moving to ASP.NET: Web Development with VB .NET, Steve Harris and Rob Macdonald gain and share deep insights into every facet of industrial-strength ASP.NET development.
This is the place to look for practical guidance on building data-driven ASP.NET applications, including datasets and data binding. It’s the place to find coverage of ASP.NET’s mobile controls for wireless/PDA development that doesn’t skate over their limitations. It’s where you can go beyond coding ASP.NET web applications, learning how to architect them, secure them, and make them scale. In short, it’s the book to read if you want to understand the realities of enterprise-class ASP.NET development -- and actually do this stuff. (Bill Camarda)
