Moving To ASP.NET: Web Development with VB .NET

Front Cover
Apress, Apr 9, 2002 - Computers - 768 pages
Steve Harris and Rob Macdonald have applied their unrivaled .NET exposure and teaching pedigree to make Moving to ASP.NET: Web Development with VB .NET the most comprehensive, yet concise, introduction to ASP.NET development available. Whereas many .NET books cover only the basics, Moving to ASP.NET leads the reader from simple concepts and development tips through to detailed and informative chapters on ASP.NET architecture, advanced design and scalability considerations, and the multifaceted topic of Web security. Special chapters that cover creating mobile Web Applications for use with cell phones, learning XML, and building .NET Web Services ensure that the reader is fully informed, not just about where ASP.NET is being applied today, but also about those areas set to become increasingly important in coming years. The unique structure of Moving to ASP.NET delivers real ASP.NET content starting from Chapter 1, while relegating general .NET and Web programming concepts to a set of carefully designed appendixes. Harris and Macdonald bring years of real experience programming and teaching .NET to bear and deliver ASP.NET programming techniques that really work, explained in a way that makes sense.
