Product Description

Learn how to create the basic, dynamic, and advanced ASP.NET pages in C#

Packed with tips, tricks, and workarounds, this book covers every aspect of developing a Web application for the enterprise using ASP.NET and C#. Written by Microsoft insiders, it shows readers how to create the basic, dynamic, and advanced ASP.NET pages in Microsoft's new C# programming language, and explains how to interact with the database using ADO.NET.

The authors review how to transport and display data on the Internet or an Intranet using XML, objects, and Web services. They also explain how to implement security with authentication, integrate important e-commerce issues, and optimize the ASP.NET Web application for optimal performance.

Companion Web site features complete source code samples for the applications developed and explained in the book.

Microsoft Technologies
.NET Platform: The next big overhaul to Microsoft's technologies that will bring enterprise distributed computing to the next level by fully integrating the Internet into the development platform. This will allow interaction between any machine, on any platform, and on any device.

Visual Basic.NET: The update to this popular visual programming language will offer greater Web functionality, more sophisticated object-oriented language features, links to Microsoft's new common runtime, and a new interface.

ASP.NET: A programming framework (formerly known as Active Server Pages) for building powerful Web-based enterprise applications; can be programmed using VB.NET or C#.

C#: Microsoft's new truly object-oriented programming language that builds on the strengths of C++ and the ease of Visual Basic; promises to give Sun's Java a run for its money.

From the Back Cover

Learn how to create an entire suite of enterprise applications with ASP.NET and C#

ASP.NET is a vast improvement over Microsoft′s popular Web technology, Active Server Pages (ASP). And, when combined with C#, Microsoft′s new and powerful programming language, ASP.NET provides developers with a robust framework for enterprise–level applications. In this book, Microsoft insiders Hank Meyne and Scott Davis cover every aspect of how to develop an ASP.NET application for the enterprise using C# as the programming language. After a brief overview of the .NET Framework, they walk you step by step through the application–– from building the object model to implementing security to enhancing the ASP.NET Web application for optimal performance.

Filled with tips, tricks, and workarounds that stem from their own real–world experiences, this book covers how to:
∗ Utilize server controls including postback, data binding, RadioButton, and CompareValidator
∗ Interact with the database using ADO.NET
∗ Develop more advanced ASP.NET pages using cookies and form collections
∗ Create, publish, and use powerful XML Web Services
∗ Implement powerful user authentication and security features to enhance your applications
∗ Integrate important e–commerce features such as shipping calculations, address verification, and e–mail notification
∗ Optimize an ASP.NET application using caching and performance profiling

The companion Web site contains the complete source code from the book as well as links to other .NET resources and ASP.NET sites on the Web.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Life Tutorial 14 Nov 2003
By RussUK
Format:Paperback
I really like this book. No bollocks about the background just a really logical development of a fully functioning web application. If you want a rehash of help files don't buy this. If you want something practical and useful buy this.
Frasers Real World ASP.NET Building a content management system is also very good in a similar practical way

4.0 out of 5 stars Contains a lot of good stuff 22 Sep 2004
Format:Paperback
I think this book is a pretty good introduction to using C# on the web. However it doesn't teach you C# from the ground up so you will need to buy a book on plain C# before you dive into this one.
It covers all the common uses of C# on the web and provides plenty of example code.
Having said that, I found that it did not always explain concepts to my satisfaction and seemed to assume knowledge which I didn't have. That could be my personal failing though.
To round up; this is a good book but I still rate the guides published by SAMS much higher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make this your first ASP.NET book 3 Jan 2005
By Rupesh Verma - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is fantastic for self-study and the only prerequisite is that you should have some understanding of C#. I bought Essential ASP.NET by Fritz Onion before this one but it was a little hard to follow at first - also, it deals more with ASP.NET architecture and internals and isn't so practical if you have to start building ASP.NET applications right away. I assure you this one can get you started in 2 to 3 days if you know C#. It covers all the major topics, doesnt have any mistakes (at least I couldn't fine any), has superb explanations and straightforward coding examples. It even teaches you ADO.NET if you dont know that already.

5.0 out of 5 stars slim fast core grasp of ASP.NET and C# for the experienced 14 Sep 2002
By winglesslight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I knew Java and ASP for several months, and I had to do ASP.NET with C# at work. This is my first and only DOT NET book so far. This slim book got me into working on ASP.NET in few days. This is NOT for the BEGINNING Programmers. If you have experience in OOP like JAVA and Serverside Web scripting like ASP, you would find this book get you to ASP.NET developing fast. It has real world example and explains core essential things. Just what you need to know to get on the job quickly. You don't spend time on what you already know. It doesn't teach you C# but since I knew Java, it was perfectly ok. For more detailed stuff where I needed, I went to MSDN library. To learn more and deep in certain sections, I'll buy some other books. I am giving 5 stars because it's the only book I read and it did good job for my purpose. Thank you very much!
4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Entry Level Developers 29 Jan 2008
By N. D. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is great for beginners, but it lacks depth. It provides a lot of examples for creating pages, but my experience is that background information is important. I would like to have seen more information on Master Page inheritance. This concept is ideal for standardizing the UI and establishing consistency throughout the application. Don't get me wrong, this is a good book, but I expected more detailed examples. Experienced developers may want to pass on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars slim fast core grasp of ASP.NET with C# 14 Sep 2002
By winglesslight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I knew Java and ASP for several months, and I had to do ASP.NET with C# at work. This is my first and only DOT NET book so far. This slim book got me into working on ASP.NET quickly. This is NOT for the BEGINNING Programmers like college freshmen. It doesn't teach you C# but since I knew Java, it was perfectly ok. If you have experience in OOP like JAVA and Serverside Web scripting like ASP, you would find this book get you to ASP.NET developing fast and worth the time. Each chapter gives you core essentials. It has good examples and explains well.
It's concise: it tells just what you need to know to get on the job quickly. You don't spend time on what you already know like basics. No book can be indepth at every area, for more detailed stuff where I needed, I went to MSDN library. To learn more and deep in certain sections, you need buy some other books. I am giving 5 stars because it's the only book I read and it did good job for my purpose. Thank you very much!
