ASP.NET Distributed Data Applications / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
This book concentrates on the use of ASP.NET for building applications for Internet or Intranet use, and looking at the possibilities that rich clients brings to both application design and a better user experience. There often appears to be confusion over how the new .NET data management and page-processing models fit into the overall distributed application architecture, how it changes this, and how it provides exciting new opportunities. So we spend some time exploring the whole architecture and design issue, and see how it can be addressed in different ways.
Author Biography: Dave Sussman is a hacker in the traditional sense of the word. That's someone who likes playing with code and working out how things work, which is why he spends much of his life working with beta software. Luckily this coincides with writing about new technologies, giving him an output for his poor English and grammar. He lives in a small village in the Oxfordshire countryside. Like many programmers everywhere he has an expensive hi-fi, a big TV and no life.
Alex Homer is a computer geek and Web developer with a passion for ASP.NET. Although he has to spend some time doing real work (a bit of consultancy and training, and the occasional conference session), most of his days are absorbed in playing with the latest Microsoft Web technology and then writing about it. Living in the picturesque wilderness of the Derbyshire Dales in England, he is well away from the demands of the real world – with only an Internet connection to maintain some distant representation of normality. But, hey, what else could you want from life?
