About this Book
ASP.NET is a Microsoft technology for building web applications that leverages all the fantastic technologies you can find in .NET Framework.
The book will move you from apprentice to master of ASP.NET by giving you specific techniques to solve problems you are likely to encounter. Each technique has a problem, solution, and discussion section. You might think of this book as a guided tour through ASP.NET best practices; we’ll introduce each scenario, solve the problem, and then discuss the results. Once you’ve read this book, you’ll have a better understanding of the most important aspects of designing, building, and maintaining ASP.NET-based applications.
You’re going to find many devices in this book that will help you in the learning process:
- Figures—Pictures that show a workflow or summarize concepts
- Listings and snippets—Pieces of code that show the solution to a problem
- Tables—Visuals that summarize a list of features or options
We hope these devices will help make concepts clearer and the learning process faster.
This book targets developers who are working on everything from the smallest home application to the largest enterprise application. ASP.NET can be useful in simple scenarios, where you can apply most of the RAD features provided by Visual Studio 2010, as well as in enterprise applications, where its roots in .NET Framework offer a wider range of possibilities.
