Going from VB.NET into ASP.NET

Posted 17 January 2012 - 09:43 AM

I've been looking around DIC to find some sort of low end projects, tutorials, or guides to help with the transition from ADO to ASP.NET. Most of what I have found is in C#, not that there is a problem with that, but my employer wants any code written to be in VB. Any suggestions (online or paper copy) would be much appreciated.

After looking at raziel_'s link, I am still confused as to which would be a better starting point: regular asp.net or MVC...for someone who has zero knowledge on the subject, the site is not very helpful. My take away was: If you want full control over the website, use the more difficult to learn MVC, otherwise, use regular asp.net. Is this correct?

I may go ahead and get that book modi recommended anyway, just for reference.

I would think you want to get a handle on the tools and what not first and then worry about pressing a design philosophy down after the fact. How much HTML/web code experience do you have?

Cool.. well that book will do a pretty damn good job from taking you to "what the hell is visual studios", basic web knowledge, to a showcase of the toolbox. From there just know that your code behind operates like a standard VB.NEt module.. your ASP side is just a less effective gui you can interact with by having controls ran as 'server'... and then reference them by name...

You can get a free chapter from their website:
http://www.murach.co.../a4vb/index.htm

and amazon has their 'look inside' thing running to see if this is for you or not.

Also we have ASP.NET Resource Thread

Also since this threads have other questions about MVC and Win Form, and the ASP.NET forum is for both VB and C#, I am going to move this topic to ASP.NET forums for other responds from other ASP.NET programmers

If you have experience in windows forms using VB.Net then you would probably have an easier time learning web forms at first as it offers a similar experience in that it uses controls that can be dragged onto the form and a code behind file that contains the events and methods for your form. As you get more comfortable with html and ASP.net I would suggest looking into mvc as it does give you better control over the html that is rendered as well as the data that gets transported between the client and the server.

I would just continue to use the C# tutorials.
The concepts and the framework that is used is the same in both languages. The only difference is the syntax.

I can understand both syntax's though, so it's not really a problem for me to flip between them. There are a lot more C# articles out there than there are VB.NET ones so I recommend getting comfortable in both languages.

If you really need to translate the C# into VB.NET then I suggest using a tool like this one that will do the conversion for you. It's not always 100% (it gets messed up on things like adding event handlers...which are easy to fix) but it does the job.
