I want to learn ASP.NET

Posted 10 July 2011 - 11:20 AM

But I have no idea what it is or how it is used, or compilers used. Can someone please show a newbie where to start? I have went here: http://www.dreaminco...pnet-resources/ but unsure which tools are the best for someone who has completely no experience with it.

And lastly, how hard is ASP.NET? I know VB.NET, C++ and such, but learning ASP.NET, how hard is it to learn? This is the real question of this thread.

Thank you.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

If you know VB.NET, ASP.NET is only a stones throw away. ASP.NET accepts C# and VB.NET. I don't have any tools or help resources for you, sorry.

Just like any other language, start here. (this is in C#, but you can also code in vb)
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
<script runat="server">
    void load_click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        lab1.Text = "Hello World!";
    }

</script>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    <asp:Label ID="lab1" runat="server" Text="O hi dar" />
    <asp:Button ID="load" runat="server" Text="Click Me" onclick="load_click"/>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Thanks Gavisann, I am going through some tutorials and such on YT, it really... really resembles HTML interestingly enough. I'm going to go through more tutorials and start from scratch I guess, because some tutorials are basically doing things before I even know what they are.

That happened to me and I had to use MSDN a lot. I'll try and find some good tutorials for you.

Thank you so much! I appreciate it, I also used MSDN a lot when I started learning VB.NET, but VB.NET is more virtually pleasing.

Start here http://www.w3schools...asp/default.asp, then follow the DIC tutorials here. I looked at them and it slowly progresses into more complex concepts.

w3schools is notorious for having errors in their examples and explanations.

ASP.NET (and the .NET framework in general) is such a large topic that you are probably better off picking up a book at your local bookstore. There are a bunch of great ones to get you started and in the right direction. There are a lot of software development languages/technologies that you can grasp 99% by looking at online tutorials, but ASP.NET is really not one of them, in my opinion.

Actually, this is classic asp, for asp.net the link is: http://www.w3schools.com/aspnet/

http://www.asp.net/get-started/ looking good

There is good books about it too, take a look

yes, big difference between just ASP and ASP.NET. Please do not try to apply ASP tutorials to ASP.NET, you will be seriously complicating your life.
