Book: Maximizing ASP.NET Real World, Object-Oriented Development
Publisher: Addison Wesley
Using ASP.NET, you can build Web applications that deliver unprecedented power and performance. But to make the most of ASP.NET, Web developers need to think and work very differently from the ways they’ve programmed in the past. In Maximizing ASP.NET Jeffrey Putz helps you make the transitionand reap the rewards.
If you’re a long-time scripter who’s migrated from ASP, PHP, or other traditional platforms, Putz shows you how to use ASP.NET’s object-oriented model to write code that’s easier to deploy, manage, extend, and reuse. If you’re already comfortable with the fundamentals of ASP.NET using C# or VB.NET, this book’s platform-specific details and development best practices will make you dramatically more effective.
