Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
ASP.NET ain't no "point upgrade": it changes your entire approach to building web applications. Your old applications are still processed as they always were, but for the new stuff -- well, the authors of Professional ASP.NET Special Edition have summarized it splendidly: "Every page becomes a programmatically accessible, fully compiled object, and takes advantage of techniques like object-oriented design, just-in-time compilation, and dynamic caching."

That isn't the only thing this book explains well. This is your single source for coverage of server controls (three full chapters); data management and XML support; state management; declarative and programmatic security; ASP.NET's extensive base class libraries (immense functionality, practically for free); business objects and transactional pages; web services; deploying to PDAs and other mobile devices; debugging and error handling; migration and interoperability... well, that scratches the surface.

There are a prodigious number of examples -- and, since the ultimate goal is displaying a web page, many of the examples are accompanied by screen shots of output, something many ASP.NET books don't do. Don't imagine it's just padding, either. In 1,350 pages, the authors of Professional ASP.NET Special Edition have room to cover ASP.NET in extraordinary depth -- and they do. (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.

    Good Intro

    Good introduction to the ASP.NET platform. I use it together with the .NET Framework documentation and have found it to be a valuable companion. If you are interested in best practises for architecting web applications with ASP.NET this will not be your best resource. For architecture I'd recommend another WROX book which I've listed below.

    A lot of rambling

    This book gives you a lot of background. A lot - way too much. I was looking for more code examples to real life ASP pages. Instead the book is full of 'this could be included in your code if you wanted this to ..... ' It is written as though an excited kid is telling you a story, and all you get is a bunch of rambling.
