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)
"Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 with C#" ist der ultimative Anfänger-Leitfaden für alle Webentwickler, die dynamische Websites und komplexe Webanwendungen mit wenig Code-Aufwand entwickeln wollen. Der erste Teil des Buches enthält Projekte, die mit sehr wenig Code auskommen. Hier lernt der Leser, wie einfach es ist, eine Website mit ASP.NET 2.0 und Visual Web Developer zu erstellen. Im zweiten Teil werden die Projekte zwar codeintensiver, wobei die Autoren aber darauf achten, dass der Codeumfang auf das absolut notwendige Minimum beschränkt bleibt, um die gestellte Aufgabe erfolgreich zu lösen. Der Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf der intensiven Verwendung der Visual Web Developer Tools. Darüber hinaus erläutern sie auch, wie man XML integriert, die Site Performance überwacht und verbessert, Code- und Site-Debugging durchführt, eine Website installiert und Sicherheitsfunktionen implementiert. Mit detaillierten Anleitungen und umfangreichen Codebeispielen in C#. In diesem Buch werden Sie Schritt für Schritt mit allen wichtigen ASP.NET Tools und Tricks vertraut gemacht. Mit begleitender Website. Sie enthält u.a. nützliche Information zu Membership und Login, zur Layoutgestaltung mit Themes und zum Integrieren von E-Commerce-Funktionalität. Geschrieben von einem erfahrenen Expertenteam.
Ein typisches Wrox Press-Buch für Anfänger: Geschrieben von Programmierern für Programmierer. Es vermittelt alle notwendigen Grundkenntnisse, praktische Übungen und bewährte Übungstechniken.
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.
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.
