Beginning ASP.Net in VB .Net: From Novice to Professional (Expert's Voice)by Matthew Macdonald
Synopses & Reviews
This book assumes only basic knowledge of VB .NET (although it contains a review of what is needed for those coming from a different background). But, by the end of it, the reader will have mastered the core knowledge needed to begin work as a professional ASP.NET developer. It places special emphasis on the techniques such as "code behind", that professionals need.
ASP.NET is the replacement for Microsoft's Active Server Page (ASP). It is more scalable, faster and is arguably the best thing Microsoft has ever done in the Web development space. The recently released 1.1 version should spur adoptions (since many people wait for the 1.1 version of any Microsoft technology) ASP.NET, like its predecessor allows a Web site builder to dynamically build Web pages on the fly by inserting queries to a relational database in the Web page. ASP.NET is different than its predecessor in that it allows use of modern languages like VB .NET instead of scripting languages and it encourages correct programming style by allowing the separation of the design from the operational code.

Beginning ASP.NET in VB .NET guides you through Microsoft's technology for building dynamic websites. This book will enable you to build dynamic web pages on the fly, and it assumes only the most basic knowledge of Visual Basic .NET.
The book provides exhaustive coverage of ASP.NET, guiding you from your first steps right up to the most advanced techniques, such as querying databases from within a web page and performance tuning your site. Within these pages, you'll find tips for ?best practices? and comprehensive discussions of key database and XML principles you'll need to know in order to be effective with ASP.NET. The book also emphasizes the invaluable coding techniques of object orientation and code behind, which will start you off on the track to build real-world websites right from the beginning?rather than just faking it with simplified coding practices.
By the time you've finished the book, you will have mastered the core techniques and have all the knowledge you need to begin work as a professional ASP.NET developer.
