About this book
Beginning ASP.NET in VB .NET guides you through Microsoft's technology for building dynamic websites. This book will enable you to build dynamic web pages on the fly, and it assumes only the most basic knowledge of Visual Basic .NET.
The book provides exhaustive coverage of ASP.NET, guiding you from your first steps right up to the most advanced techniques, such as querying databases from within a web page and performance tuning your site. Within these pages, you'll find tips for “best practices” and comprehensive discussions of key database and XML principles you'll need to know in order to be effective with ASP.NET. The book also emphasizes the invaluable coding techniques of object orientation and code behind, which will start you off on the track to build real-world websites right from the beginning—rather than just faking it with simplified coding practices.
By the time you've finished the book, you will have mastered the core techniques and have all the knowledge you need to begin work as a professional ASP.NET developer.
