About this book
Over the past few years you will have likely noticed the rise and rise of web portals and seen the impact that they are having on the way that we use the Web. Portals such as Sharepoint, Live.com, Google, and DotNetNuke have transformed the way that we consume our daily information. Regardless of whether or not you are new to portals or an old hand with them, this book will provide you with all that you need to know to start building them.
This book is unlike many other popular ASP.NET books in that it focuses solely on teaching you how to use the web parts and portal framework features of ASP.NET 2.0 to build portal applications. By removing unnecessary details of other parts of ASP.NET and reducing the amount of information that there is to consume we can view portal creation in a very clear and concise manner.
This book is divided into two parts and is designed to guide you from the very first moment that you start using the portal framework right up to the point where you need to design and build a portal for an enterprise scenario.
