Sams Teach Yourself ASP.NET in 21 Days, Second Edition By Chris Payne
Table of Contents
Who Is This Book's Intended Audience?
This book is intended to bring beginners of ASP.NET to advanced levels. That description covers a large group of people. To fully absorb the lessons in this book, you need to be familiar with computer technology and terms (for example, how to navigate your hard drive or browse pages on the Internet). Previous programming experience is not required, but will help immensely. Knowledge of basic HTML is also a must.
Classic ASP developers will also benefit greatly from this book. Not only do I show you how to do advanced tasks in ASP.NET, but each day also has a special section "That's Not ASP!" that caters specifically to those who have such prior experience. These sections discuss the changes in ASP.NET from classic ASP, and provide examples that will help your migration to ASP.NET move more smoothly.
Most importantly, this book is for people who have a desire to build a strong Web presence (or even a simple home page) using the power of ASP.NET. If you've never built anything other than an HTML page, ASP.NET is the perfect place to start. It gives you tremendous power, and is easy to get started in. You'll be amazed at what you can do with ASP.NET.
