Good starting point,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beginning ASP.Net 4.5 in C# (Experts Voice in .Net) (Paperback)
I bought this book because I moved into a role using ASP.NET and C# although I'd never used these before. I found this book to be very well written, without the jokey patronising style of some other "Beginning ..." books I have bought. Although a lot of information can be found via the internet, it tends to be very tightly topic-focused, can be wrong, incomplete or very out-of-date, and what this book does is to give the reader a broad framework into which more specific pieces of info can be fitted.It does give a very good overview of the fundamentals, including, for example using Visual Studio - e.g. I'd found out how to create a project but I didn't know the difference between that and a website, and why a co-workers site generated .designer.cs files but mine didn't. I've by no means covered the whole 800+ pages, but enough to confidently recommend this as an intro for a capable developer new to ASP.
