ASP.NET Developer's JumpStart By Paul D. Sheriff, Ken Getz
Table of Contents
Part I. Introduction to Microsoft .NET and ASP.NET
Become acquainted with the sample application you will build in this book
Learn how to use the application sample code
This book focuses on creating applications in ASP.NET, and to help you get started creating your own applications as quickly as possible, we've supplied a full working application that shows off as many ASP.NET features as we could cram into one application. As you work through the book, you'll create and study many pages all related to the Northwind sample database that comes with Microsoft SQL Server. In this chapter, you'll preview the various pages in the main application as well as those from some of the subsidiary applications (we couldn't fit everything we wanted to cover into the one single application). You can think of this chapter as an orientation to the applications, so you'll be familiar with each chapter's example before you begin.
