While I try to show you as many of the new features in ASP.NET 2.0 as I can, it is not possible to cover them all in the scope of this book. Microsoft has made many enhancements to Visual Studio 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0, and often there is more than one way of doing the same thing.
Thus, the end of each lab includes a section entitled "Where Can I Learn More?" Here I will point you to books, magazine articles, online resources, MSDN articles, and Visual Studio 2005 Help topics where you can find more detail or obtain another perspective. When I refer to the MSDN Help Topics, I am generally referring to the MSDN Library that is available to you through the installed Visual Studio 2005 Help, or online at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library. The MSDN Library contains a wealth of resources and should be the first place you visit if you have a question about a particular feature of ASP.NET. Online articles are also a very useful way to learn more about a particular feature of ASP.NET. I would also encourage you to check out some of the following good magazines where you can read more about ASP.NET:
