If you’re a Visual Basic developer who’s going to be upgrading to ASP.NET 2.0 from ASP.NET 1.0 or 1.1, this book can save you many of hours of research. It can do that because we’ve already done that research for you. Then, we put that information into this single book that will help you upgrade to ASP.NET 2.0 as quickly and easily as possible.

Unlike most competing books, this one doesn’t just tell you what the new features are and how great they are and then let you figure out how to use them on your own. Instead, our book also shows you exactly how to use all of the new features so you get the most from them. That’s why we say that the purpose of this book is to show you: "What’s new and how to use it."

Like all our books, this one has features that you won’t find in competing books. That’s why we believe you’ll learn faster and better with our book than with any other.

Here are just three of those features.

·       To make sure that you learn the new ASP.NET 2.0 features as quickly and easily as possible, all of the features are presented in the context of complete applications. These applications include the web forms, the aspx code, and the Visual Basic code. As we see it, the best way to learn is to study applications like these, even though you won’t find them in most competing books.

·       Unlike many ASP.NET books, this one shows you how to get the most from Visual Studio 2005 as you develop your applications. Because we’ve found that this IDE is one of the keys to development productivity, we’re still surprised that most books ignore or neglect it.

·       If you page through this book, you’ll see that all of the information is presented in "paired pages," with the essential syntax, guidelines, and examples on the right page and the perspective and extra explanation on the left page. This not only helps you learn faster by reading less, but it is also the best reference format that you’ll find anywhere. That’s why this book works so well for both training and reference.

    Targeted at the ASP.Net developer who's ready to uppgrade.

    This book was intended for me. I¿m an experienced developer of ASP.Net applications and I¿m ready to move on to ASP.Net 2.0. The book assumes that you know ASP.Net programming and takes you through the new features step-by-step in an easy to absorb style. All of it is based on using Visual Studio 2005 for your development environment. The style of this book and, I think, all the Murach books is to pair up facing pages. The left side has text that explains the subject. The right side has examples, pictures, and other learning aids. Often this is a reiteration of the left side in a different style. This worked well for me and made it pretty easy to consume the content in byte size chunks. This book is based on VB.Net 2005. There¿s only a little material on the changes to VB.Net 2005 from the previous version. There¿s also a C# book available. Due to client requests I¿ve been doing most of my recent work in VB.Net so I chose this version. Overall, I found it a great resource for the task at hand: learning ASP.Net 2.0. I¿d recommend it to experienced developers who are ready to upgrade.
