Publisher: SitePoint
Pages: 712


Using a practical step-by-step approach, the authors introduce the ASP.NET framework, teach you about database design, and walk you through obtaining, installing and configuring all the freely available software you need to use ASP.NET 2.0. The second edition of this guide will help you get your database-driven ASP.NET web site up and running in no time. This book does not assume prior ASP.NET experience, and includes all code samples in both C# & VB.

ASP.NET is one of the most widely adopted and powerful web application platforms available today. It's becoming increasingly important for web developers to expand their skills and learn the ins and outs of this technology, which is now used by major organizations such as Accenture, Compaq, AIG, Disney, Adobe, Dell, Ford, and many others.
Using a practical step-by-step approach, the authors of Build Your Own ASP.NET 2.0 Web Site Using C# & VB, 2nd Edition show you how to obtain, install and configure the software you’ll need. They then introduce the ASP.NET framework, VB and C#, and guide you through the process of building a fully functional web application. All you need to get started is an understanding of HTML and the basics of web site design – you won’t need to spend a cent on software.

This second edition of this bestselling ASP.NET book has been completely revised for ASP.NET 2.0, with greatly expanded coverage of best practice techniques like code-behind, usage of Visual Web Developer and SQL Server Express Edition, and coverage of powerful new ASP.NET 2.0 functionality, including the GridView control and Master Pages.
