Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Microsoft’s ASP.NET 2.0 is arguably the most powerful, easiest web development platform ever created. Even if you have only the lightest programming skills, you can build some pretty slick sites. Especially if you’ve learned from Sams Teach Yourself ASP.NET 2.0 in 24 Hours, Complete Starter Kit.

Scott Mitchell, one of the world’s most experienced ASP.NET authors and instructors, has written a near-perfect beginner’s book. What’s more, this package provides all your tools: Microsoft’s entry-level Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition, plus a downsized version of Microsoft’s enterprise database.

You’ll walk through installation; building your first site; collecting and processing user input; grabbing database information, then formatting and displaying it effectively. Finally, you’ll build a complete application, even adding nice touches like email alerting. Whether you “need” to master dynamic web development, or you’re just curious, this book’s all you need. Bill Camarda, from the April 2006 Read Only

Read an Excerpt

IntroductionIntroduction

As the World Wide Web continues its meteoric growth, websites have matured from simple collections of static HTML pages to data-driven dynamic web applications. For example, websites like eBay or Amazon.com are much more than simple HTML pages; they're actual applications that are accessed through the Internet. Although there are many competing technologies for building data-driven websites, this book shows how to use the latest version of Microsoft's popular ASP.NET technology for creating web applications.

ASP.NET web applications are composed of individual ASP.NET web pages. As we will see in numerous examples throughout this book, these ASP.NET web pages can display HTML, collect user input, and interact with databases. ASP.NET web pages contain a mix of both HTML markup and source code. It is the source code of an ASP.NET web page that allows for the more advanced features, such as accessing data from a database or sending an email from an ASP.NET web page. The source code of an ASP.NET web page can be written in any one of a number of different programming languages. For this book we will be using Microsoft's Visual Basic programming language. Don't worry if you've never programmed in Visual Basic or have never even programmed at all. Starting with Hour 5, "Understanding Visual Basic's Variables and Operators," we will spend three hours examining programming language concepts and the Visual Basic syntax.

To ease ASP.NET web page development, Microsoft provides a free development editor, Visual Web Developer, which is included on this book's accompanying CD. We will be using Visual Web Developerthroughout this book to create our ASP.NET web pages. Visual Web Developer simplifies creating both the HTML markup and source code portions of ASP.NET web pages. The HTML markup for an ASP.NET web page can be quickly created by using the What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) graphical editor. With this WYSIWYG editor, you can simply drag and drop various HTML elements onto an ASP.NET web page, moving them around with a few clicks of the mouse.

ASP.NET version 2.0 contains a number of improvements over version 1.0. With ASP.NET 2.0, Microsoft has made it easier than ever before to build data-driven websites. Starting in Hour 13, "An Introduction to Databases," we will begin our look at building websites that interact with databases. Hours 14 through 16 highlight a number of the new tools in ASP.NET 2.0 that facilitate creating database-aware web pages. Additionally, ASP.NET 2.0 and Visual Web Developer provide tools to help with building professional, easy-to-use websites. In Hour 19, "Defining a Site's Structure and Providing Site Navigation," we'll look at how to define a website's navigational structure and easily provide menus, treeviews, and breadcrumbs. Hour 21, "Using Master Pages to Provide Sitewide Page Templates," examines master pages, a new feature that enables web designers to create a web page template that can be applied to all pages across the site.

This book is geared for developers new to ASP.NET, whether or not you've had past experience with HTML or programming languages. By the end of this book, you'll be able to create your own dynamic, data-driven web applications using ASP.NET. In fact, in Hours 22 through 24 we'll build a completely functional online photo album web application, highlighting the lessons learned throughout the previous hours.Conventions Used in This Book

This book uses several conventions to help you prioritize and reference the information it contains:

  • Did You Knows highlight information that can make using ASP.NET 2.0 more effective.

  • Watch Outs focus your attention on problems or side effects that can occur in specific situations.

  • By the Ways provide useful information that you can read immediately or circle back to without losing the flow of the topic at hand.

In addition, this book uses various typefaces to help you distinguish code from regular English. Code is presented in a monospace font. Placeholders—words or characters used temporarily to represent the real words or characters you would type in code—are typeset in italic monospace. If you are asked to type or enter text, that text will appear in bold monospace.

Some code statements presented in this book are too long to appear on a single line. In these cases, a line-continuation character (an arrow) is used to indicate that the following line is a continuation of the current statement.

I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Happy Programming!

    easy guide

    Active Server Pages is Microsoft's preferred method for you to write dynamic web pages under their web server and operating system. So what can you do in ASP? Mitchell gives an answer suitable for a beginner who should already know something about HTML and Visual Basic. These are fairly undemanding constraints. To a programmer, HTML as a layout language is easy to write. Visual Basic is a little harder, but still simpler than C# or C++. The style of coding ASP is a little different from most languages, where you might start off with pure computational programs, with little in the way of user interfaces. The book shows that from the very start of writing in ASP, you need a browser running, in which the results of your program appear. Also, the issue of input validation is important. Where the ASP source code, or input data, needs to be checked, and where error messages need to be carefully handled. Helpfully, ASP comes with easy aids. For you as a newbie, the debugger might be the most important of these. Connecting your code to a SQL database seems to be the most intricate part of the book. It's certainly a vital ability of ASP to do this cleanly. But I wonder how many beginners to ASP really use this. As with other books in this Sams series, most chapters have a simple quiz and exercises. The exercises given here are not difficult at all. That aspect might actually be a problem to some readers, who want harder puzzles.

    Great first book on ASP.NET

    I have a lot of experience building web sites and wanted a book that would give a good taste of ASP.NET. My conclusion is that this is a good place to start. One important point is that there are two languages supported in Microsoft Visual Studio, C# and Visual Basic.Net. Microsoft Press has some excellent titles on ASP.Net, but, they are written around C#. Which is fine if you have a good knowledge of C#. This book is written around Visual Basic.Net so it is much easier for someone with a knowledge of programming languages, below the full professional developer level to understand. I wanted a book that didn't drown the reader with useless details and over simplification. Scott Mitchell managed to hit a good compromise - enough words to get the point across in a clear manner, without boring the reader. You can't master ASP.NET in 24 hours with this book, but you can get sufficient experience to go on to more indepth titles. All in all this is a good starter, and a real plus is that it includes a copy of the applications.
