Annotation Learn ASP.NET quickly using a hands-on, practical approach. This book is positioned to be one of the first books available that covers the release version of ASP.NET, part of Microsoft’s new .NET architecture. The By Example easy-to-use tutorial approach provides the reader a much faster and more interactive learning experience than the competition’s reference model. Sample applications speed learning of ASP.NET by providing hands-on examples of covered techniques. ASP.NET By Example includes the following topics: creating custom ASP.NET controls; coverage of the new ADO+ object and how to use it in ASP.NET; using ASP.NET’s intrinsic, list, and validation controls; case studies of the use of ASP.NET in e-commerce; deploying and managing ASP.NET applications; and migrating from ASP to ASP.NET.
