Book Description

13 Jan 2014 1430243538 978-1430243533 5th New edition
ASP.NET 4.5 remains Microsoft's preferred technology for creating dynamic websites, providing developers with unrivaled power and flexibility. Pro ASP.NET 4.5 in VB is the most complete reference to ASP.NET that you will find. This comprehensively revised fifth edition will teach you everything you need to know in order to create well-designed ASP.NET websites. Beginning with core concepts the book progresses steadily through key professional skills. You'll be shown how to query databases in detail, consider the myriad applications of XML, and step through all the considerations you need to be aware of when securing your site from intruders. Finally, you'll consider advanced topics such as using client-side validation, jQuery and Ajax.By the time you have read this book you will have learned all the skills you need to use ASP.NET 4.5 with confidence. What you'll learn * Understand why ASP.NET 4.5 is so special, what its fundamental principles are, the basics of Visual Studio, how ASP.NET controls are created and how they fit into ASP.NET pages, ultimately creating full applications. * Become familiar with ASP.NET MVC 4, one of the biggest additions to ASP.N ET 4, and understand how to use it and integrate it within your existing ASP.NET applications. * Discover the intricacies of ADO.NET and the Entity Framework and how to perform data binding to many sources, from databases to file streams and XML. * Learn the various forms of security available and how to best apply them. Once considered the Achilles' heel of all Windows web applications, security has vastly improved and is now a cornerstone of ASP.NET. * Examine in detail advanced user interface techniques, including user controls, customer server controls, client-side JavaScript, GDI+, and Silverlight. * Understand how to work with web services, an important skill in an increasingly connected world. * Use ASP.NET AJAX, HTML and JavaScript, with an emphasis on contemporary web development techniques. Who this book is for This book is aimed at developers with a basic understanding on the .NET Framework who want to learn how to use it in a professional environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for ASP .NET developers 10 Mar 2014
By B. Zhou - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a VB .NET developer who's trying to learn more about .NET 4.5. This book is simply awesome. I've only gone through the first 6 chapters and have already learned so much more about VB .NET.

I would highly recommend this book to fellow ASP .NET developers.

This book is well written and comprehensive. I've just started reading it, but I am very pleased with what I have read so far.

But a good book to pass the time and read up on. VB Pro was the last book of this nature I purchased over 10 years ago. This is well structured.

I just downloaded the source code as a test. It's a big file (But not as big as Microsoft's downloads!) because I wanted each project to stand alone so there is a lot of duplication.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy until downloads are available. 14 Oct 2013
By John Papaioannou - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just bought the book from Amazon and from the look of it, it seems very good and practical. I had to return the book though, because the downloads are not available, due to a software problem on the download Web site. I contacted Amazon who very casually and unprofessionally did not immediately take ownership of the problem and asked me to contact the publisher. It's been 3 days and I've had no feedback. If the downloads are not available then this should be stated by Amazon and the customer should not have to do work that Amazon should be doing.
