ASP.Net 2.0 Beta Preview
Synopses & Reviews
The changes in ASP.NET 2.0 are numerous, far-reaching, and exciting.
If youve been working with previous versions of ASP.NET, this book will give you a head start in understanding and applying ASP.NET 2.0. Youll find code for the examples in both VB.NET and C#, so you are prepared to use either language.
ASP.NET 2.0 enables you to build powerful, secure, dynamic applications with up to seventy percent less code, according to Microsoft®. Step by step, this book will show you how ASP.NET 2.0 differs from its predecessor, what you need to do to make the transition, and how to use these extensive changes to enhance your development.

What is this book about?
ASP.NET 2 Beta Preview is timed to coincide with the first widespread beta release of ASP.NET "Whidbey" — the new version of Microsoft’s popular technology for creating dynamic Web sites that pull unique information for each visitor rather that showing everyone the same static HTML pages. The book gets developers up to speed with the new features and capabilities that ASP.NET 2.0 provides. Developers will learn how to build ASP.NET 2.0 applications for themselves from the examples that the book provides.
This book is for ASP.NET developers making the transition to this new version of the technology. The changes are many, and in some cases, they're quite dramatic. The book spends a good deal of time alerting you to all that has changed and explaining what you need to know to make the transition to ASP.NET 2.0.
Finally, the book focuses on both the Visual Basic .NET and C# developer. Examples throughout the book do not favor one developer over another. Instead, every example is provided in both languages.
