ASP.NET 3.5 is Microsoft s next generation web-development technology building upon the successful ASP.NET 2.0 platform and augmenting it with a number of key new features. The most prominent of these are ASP.NET AJAX (formerly code-named Atlas) for improving user-interface design and Language Integrated Query (LINQ) for revolutionizing the way .NET code interacts with database information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very very good 16 Jun 2008
I have a lot of books but this is the best by far. It's clear, well written and the examples are relevant. I've been programming .net since version 1.1, and its nice that I'm bumping into stuff that I just didn't know before. Anyway, to put it simply, I can't recommend this book enough, I've packed all my others away :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book about newest technology! 27 Jan 2008
This is excellent book for all people who's interesting learn about ASP.NET 3.5. It also serves as a great reference.
In this book You can find all interesting important information about creating powerful web application in Microsoft Technology with C#. Interesting chapters have a lot of examples,

charts, and pictures illustrated all topics in this book. I think this is the best resource about the newest web technology.

This book is good for all developers, from people who's create first application on NET Framework and for experts and professional developers. Matthew MacDonald and Mario

Szpuszta prepare book, where You can easly find everything information about development with ASP.NET, from core concepts (NET Framework strategy, working with Visual

Studio 2008) to advanced security sections and building custom controls and weparts with ASP.NET technology. Additional, writers add to book some special chapters about Linq,

AJAX and Silverlight. This is good introduction to these technology, too.

Everyday I work with building internet application and websites, and I using this book in my work. It's incredibly source of examples, best practices and information about my

favourite web technology. I have a two, the best chapters,and I like read this two, three ... and when I read this I always found new features in ASP.NET.
I like chapters about advanced user interface techniques where developers can learn about user controls, customer server controls, using JavaScript in client-side features and

GDI+ with ASP.NET applications, and chapter about development applications with Internet Information Services 7, Microsoft's premier web hosting platform.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best I've found 11 Sep 2008
I'm a professional C# & WinForms developer who's moving over to ASP.NET. I've looked at a few books (and mis-purchased one) but luckily eventually found this book. The authors really know their ASP.NET, and they write about it and present it perfectly. The coverage is accurate, insightful, comprehensive (as far as I can tell), interesting and paced just right. I read it bit by bit on the train into work, and can't wait to get into the office to apply the new things I've just learned. Can't recommend this one strongly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coverage and depth 5 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What more can I say? Its all in here and with plenty of examples to show how it all works too. Nice writing style makes for easy reading - but at 1498 pages you ain't going to get through it in a day. Its great for dipping in and out of and for looking up the specifics of C#/ASP topics - or pick a chapter and enhance your knowledge.

Very, very impressed by this - its my first APress book, but it won't be my last.
