Product description


This book will provide the definitive resource for ASP.NET developers working in C#, not just to the features of ASP.NET but also how to use them best. Fritz Onion looks at working examples of how Web applications are built today, and then looks at what ASP.NET offers to simplify constructing Web applications of this type. In addition to explaining how to use ASP.NET and examining why it is built the way it is, Onion also explores implementation tools not covered in any other books. He helps the reader acquire a broader understanding of the technology and how it fits in with other tools. From his experience teaching ASP.NET to working developers, Onion knows what information they need, what questions they have, and how to organize and present the material in the best way possible. As Justin Burtch, a Software Engineer at Integrated Data Systems expressed it, "This book does not try to be everything to everyone. As a result, it is able to provide both breadth and depth on the subject. Essential ASP.NET is positioned to become the seminal book on the most important advancement to web development in years."

From the Back Cover

Praise for Essential ASP.NET with Examples in C#

“Essential ASP.NET with Examples in C# is so good that it’s the only ASP.NET book on my working bookshelf.”

         ―LARRY O’BRIEN, .NET Watch columnist, SD Times

“Essential ASP.NET is positioned to become the seminal book on the most important advancement to Web development in years.”

         ―JUSTIN BURTCH, software engineer

“Fritz’s explanations are clear and concise without being patronizing; his examples are succinct without being trivial. I can now say that after reading Fritz’s book, and trying a few things out, I feel that I ‘know’ ASP.NET. Reading his book has been a very helpful experience.”

         ―RICHARD GRIMES, .NET author and consultant

“Like many of the teachers who have worked with DevelopMentor, Fritz has a great ability to make complex concepts very easy to understand. The explanations go deep enough that I’ve had several ‘a ha’ moments while finally understanding how some features really worked.”

         ―SCOTT SEELY, Microsoft Corporation

“This is an excellent book! It has a straightforward style and is comprehensive.”

         ―DARYL RICHTER, software architect

“This book greatly improves the understanding of ASP.NET. The text is concise and examples are well written. The signal-to-noise ratio of this book is very high. I am sure it will be a great value to its readers.”

         ―AMIT KALANI, software programmer/analyst

“Fritz Onion’s Essential ASP.NET is one of the best ASP.NET books I have read.”

         ―JAMES EDELEN, Microsoft MVP

“It is deep enough that everyone is assured of learning something, no matter how experienced you may already be.”

         ―PAUL WILSON, Software Architect, WilsonDotNet.com

“The book is a winner, and a must-have for experienced developers who want to augment their knowledge of ASP.NET by being aware of what goes on under the hood.”

         ―JASON SALAS, MBA, MCP, and Web Development Manager for Pacific Telestations, Inc.

“If you are looking for an ASP.NET book that can help take you to the next level, Essential ASP.NET with Examples in C# is your first class ticket.”

         ―ROBBE MORRIS, Senior Software Engineer, EggHeadCafe.com

"This well-conceived and well-written book has extensive knowledge and priceless experience overflowing from its pages. It captures the true essence of ASP.NET and walks the reader to a high level of technical and architectural skill."
--J. Fred Maples, Director of Software Engineering, NASDAQ.com

Essential ASP.NET with Examples in C# is the C# programmer's definitive reference for ASP.NET through version 1.1. It provides experienced programmers with the information needed to fully understand the technology, and is a clear guide to using ASP.NET to build robust and well architected Web applications.

This book begins with a discussion of the rationale behind the design of ASP.NET and an introduction to how it builds on top of the .NET framework. Subsequent chapters explore the host of new features in ASP.NET, including the server-side compilation model, code-behind classes, server-side controls, form validation, the data binding model, and custom control development. Throughout the book, working examples illustrate best practices for building Web-based applications in C#.

Among the topics explored in depth are:

  • ASP.NET architecture
  • Web forms
  • Configuration
  • HTTP pipeline
  • Diagnostics and error handling
  • Validation
  • Data binding
  • Custom controls
  • Caching
  • State management
  • Security

    Essential ASP.NET with Examples in C# provides readers with the know-how needed to build more powerful, better architected Web applications with ASP.NET.
