All-In-One Microsoft Web-Development Basics, Nicely Done,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself ASP.NET 2.0 in 24 Hours, Complete Starter Kit (Paperback)ASP.NET is the heart of Microsoft's web-development platform. ASP.NET includes a large set of web-page controls and database access controls that are executed by a server-side engine. Just drag and drop these controls on a web page from the Visual Studio IDE (or its free, stripped-down version, Visual Web Developer), add a small amount of code (VB, C#, or other) to handle a few events, and you have a web application that handles almost any task, including heavy duty database access. Publish the ASP.Net pages on any web server with .NET support. When a user with any browser requests an ASP.NET page, the web server passes the request to the ASP.NET engine, which fills data requests and performs other processing chores, and then returns information to the user via the web server as standard HTML. ASP.NET is one of the top technologies used for major web sites. Any site showing pages with a ".aspx" extension is an ASP.NET site. As decribed below, it is hard to learn much at all about...

Overall an excellent introduction,
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself ASP.NET 2.0 in 24 Hours, Complete Starter Kit (Paperback)As a person new to ASP.NET I found Scott's book to be exceptionally low on the frustration scale while being an excellent introduction. Many computer books are rife with typos and oversights on the part of the author that cause newbies to tear their hair out when their project doesn't perform as the author intended. Scott has been extremely careful and I believe I only found two typos in the entire book that caused me to scratch my head for a few minutes trying to figure out what went wrong.
Do take your time going through the first 21 chapters as Scott moves pretty fast in chapters 22 to 24. You'll be lost if you don't take the time to pick up the basic skills. It will also be a little difficult for those who have no past experience with Visual Basic, although this is not a flaw with the book (Scott gives you all the code you need) just an observation.
Overall I was very impressed with this book. Returning to the world of web development after a hiatus of five... Read more

Great for Beginners,
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself ASP.NET 2.0 in 24 Hours, Complete Starter Kit (Paperback)I have been developing in MS ACCESS, VB, and SQL SERVER for several years; but I had no prior experience in web development. This book was great at laying a foundation for web-development. Each hour is a new piece of the web development puzzle. The author assumes you know nothing; while this may be frustrating for experienced developers, it does a lot of hand-holding for the novice web developer.
It is critical to note that is the reader's responsibility to take all the information and put it together and apply the information to your project. The Photo Album application the author has you build in the final section of the book will help facilitate some of that for you.
Overall I think it a great start for beginners. I'm now migrating to more intensive books. Good job Scott!
