Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

ASP.NET 2.0 is an amazing technology that allows you to develop web sites and applications with very little hassle, and its power and depth enable it to host even the most complex applications available. Using code examples in C#, this invaluable beginner's guide shows you how to program web applications in ASP.NET 2.0 and see dynamic results with minimal effort.

Through detailed explanations and working C# code examples, this popular author team eases you into the world of ASP.NET development and gradually introduces you to all sorts of interesting ASP.NET tricks and tools. You'll quickly see how ASP.NET 2.0 is designed to ensure a significant reduction in the amount of code you have to write—and, in turn, to make your life easier.

What you will learn from this book

  • Why Visual Web Developer is an ideal environment for building feature-rich ASP.NET 2.0 applications with C#
  • How to secure web sites, providing login functionality and role-based access to content
  • Useful techniques for safely updating data, using ASP.NET 2.0's built-in data handling capabilities
  • How centralized site design can be easily achieved
  • How to add e-commerce functionality to a site
  • Methods for enhancing an application's performance

Who this book is for

This book is for anyone new to web programming who wants to program dynamic, feature-rich web applications in ASP.NET 2.0. It will also be ideal for programmers seeking to upgrade their ASP 3 knowledge to ASP.NET, or programmers from non-Microsoft web disciplines who need to learn ASP.NET 2.0.

Wrox Beginning guides are crafted to make learning programming languages and technologies easier than you think, providing a structured, tutorial format that will guide you through all the techniques involved.

Book News Annotation:

Working from the knowledge that this is a powerful technology that allows developers to create web sites and applications quickly, the authors, all seasoned practitioners, use code examples in C# to show new users how to see dynamic results with minimal effort. They make sure readers understand what the product does and how it relates to the Wrox United Application first, then move to site design, page design, membership and identity, styling with themes, events and code, reading and writing data, code, components, roles and profiles, web services, e-commerce, errors, deployment, builds and finishing up. Chapters have exercises with answers and appendices cover such essentials as working with VWD Database Explorer and CSS and HTML quick references. This could easily take developers to the intermediate level and even then still serve as a handy reference. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This book continues the strong Wrox Beginning tradition with an approach featuring numerous detailed examples, step by step teaching, and clear explanations of how each key bit of code works. The book takes a task oriented approach, teaching readers how to build a specific part of a complete web site.

With the introduction of the Visual Web Developer tool, there's no need for ASP.NET coders - especially beginners - to hand code any pages. In fact, starting an ASP.NET 2.0 site with Visual Web Developer is so easy that the first several chapters of the book can be done with very little code at all.

When the book does get to more code intensive chapters in the 2nd half of the book, C# is the language used in the examples here. Even then, the authors do their best to show readers the minimum amount of code they need to write to accomplish a task, continuing to work as much as possible with the tools built into Visual Web Developer.

The completed web site the readers finish from the tasks in the book contains these features plus more: Membership and login Stylized themes e-commerce Along the way, readers also learn how to incorporate XML, monitor and improve site performance, debug the code and site, deploy a site, and implement security

About the Author

Chris Hart normally works at Trinity Expert Systems Plc, based in Coventry (UK) but is currently on maternity leave. She's worked on several major .NET, SharePoint, and CMS applications. She enjoys having a job where she gets to learn and play with new technologies on a regular basis, often working on-site with customers. She's been using.NET since the pre-Alpha days, and yet still enjoys the fun of working with beta software.

Chris lives in Birmingham (UK, not Alabama) with her extremely understanding husband James and baby Nathan, and is discovering that motherhood is more challenging than developing a CMS systems for a major client. She's currently trying to work out how to make the  home network toddlerproof.

I'd like to thank James for being so understanding - this was the hardest one yet, and you were great. Thanks also to my brother Rob for your inspiring creativity - best of luck in your final year at Uni. Thanks to Lou for designing the Wrox United site, and for being such a fantastic friend. Finally, thanks to Nathan for waiting eight more days after I finished my final drafts before arriving into the world.

Chris Hart contributed Chapters 3-5 and 11 and Appendix C to this book.

John Kauffman was born in Philadelphia, the son of a chemist and a nurse. He received his degrees from The Pennsylvania State University, the Colleges of Science and Agriculture. His early research was for Hershey foods in the genetics of the chocolate tree and the molecular biology of chocolate production. Since 1993 John has focused on explaining technology in the classroom and in books.

In his spare time, John is an avid sailor and youth sailing coach. He also enjoys jazz music and drumming. In addition to technical material, he manages to read the New Yorker magazine from cover-to-cover each week.

John Kauffman contributed Chapters 1, 2, 7, and 8 and Appendix D to this book.

Dave Sussman is an independent trainer, consultant, and writer, who inhabits that strange place called beta land. It's full of various computers, multiple boot partitions, VPC images, and very occasionally, stable software. When not writing books or testing alpha and beta software, Dave can be found working with a variety of clients helping to bring ASP.NET projects into fruition. He is a Microsoft MVP, and a member of the ASP Insiders and INETA Speakers Bureau. You can find more details about Dave and his books at his official website (www.ipona.com ) or the site he shares with Alex Homer (http://daveandal.net).

Dave Sussman contributed Chapters 6, 9, 14, and 15 and Appendix E to this book.

Chris Ullman is a free4lance web developer and technical author who has spent many years stewing in ASP / ASP.NET, like a teabag left too long in the pot. Coming from a Computer Science background, he started initially as a UNIX/Linux guru, who gravitated towards MS technologies during the summer of ASP (1997). He cut his teeth on Wrox Press ASP guides, and since then, he has written on over 20 books, most notably as lead author for Wrox's bestselling Beginning ASP / ASP.NET 1.x series, and has contributed chapters to books on PHP, ColdFusion, JavaScript, Web Services, C#, XML, and other Internet-related technologies to esoteric to mention, now swallowed by up in the quicksands of the dot.com boom.

Quitting Wrox as a full-time employee in August 2001, he branched out into VB.NET/C#programming and ASP.NET development and started his own business, CUASP Consulting Ltd, in April 2003. He maintains a variety of sites from www.cuasp.co.uk, his "work" site, to www.atomicwise.com, a selection of his writings on music and art. The birth of his twins Jay and Luca in February 2005 took chaos to a new level. He now divides his time between protecting the twins from their over-affectionate three-year-old brother Nye, composing electronic sounds on bits of dilapidated old keyboards for his music project Open E, and tutoring his cats in the art of peaceful co-existence and not violently mugging each other on the stairs.

Chris Ullman contributed Chapters 10, 12, 13, and 16 and Appendix B to this book.
