Default Starting from ASP.NET 1.1/2.0?

Hi everybody,

I'm new in ASP but don't know where should I start. (ASP/ASP.NET 1.1/2.0?) I'm so ambiguous.
Is ASP.NET 2.0 still in beta now?
Any good book prefer?

Thanks,
Alan

ASP.NET 2.0 is still in beta. I'd start with 1.1 and beginning asp.net 1.1 will be a good start.

Hi stu9820,

Thanks for your reply first!

Why you prefer starting with ASP.NET 1.1 rather than ASP? It seems that some web pages are still using ASP code (even Microsoft). Is it difficult to migrate the code to ASP.NET?

ASP.NET is the next generation of ASP.
It is becomming more and more used as time passes.
Yes, Classic ASP is still widely used but as more pages use ASP.NET, ASP will deminish.
Basically, if you are starting now, by the time you are developing, time efficiently, ASP.NET will be the standard.
The difference between ASP.NET 1.1 and 2 is not to be considered when it comes to learning.
Anything you learn in one will be able to be transfered to the other(or at least in the most part).
The important part is to start at a point where there is a future.
Classic ASP's future is ASP.NET1.1>2>etc.

Hi rodmcleay,

Thanks for your reply too!

I think I will start from ASP.NET 1.1 using VB.NET first.

Which books is good for me? (I don't have experience in programming)
1.Beginning Dynamic Websites: with ASP.NET Web Matrix
2.Beginning ASP.NET 1.1 with VB.NET 2003
3.Others?

I haven't used any VB.NET Books.

Others may help there.

Are you planning on developing with the Web Matrix, If so the book that specializes in that is probably a good idea to learn with.
But I have not seen it, so I can't say for sure.

Actually, I don't know the term "Web Matrix" but just saw the content that may relate to the information for me to learn.

BTW, I'm planing to develop a dynamic web site that using ASP.NET with database first.

The Web Matrix is a free development tool for ASP.NET made by Microsoft.
There are many alternatives to this but the book you mentioned is designed for this developement environment.
Take a look around this site.
http://www.asp.net
If you don't have an IDE (Integrated Developement Environment) the Web Matrix is probabaly a good place to start.
There a lots of free tutorials and info on the site that you can read before buying a book.

I've a stupid question again. What is IDE (Integrated Development Environment)? Is it mean hardware (another file server....etc) /software (Domain controller/VB.Net/odbc setup in web server..etc) infrastructure I already have?

The IDE is the software you use to write programs.
Microsoft Visual Studio is an IDE, so is Web Matrix, Dreamweaver, etc.
What software do you have to use at the moment?
