Req. suggestions for learning path
I apologize if I am asking something already posted. I searched and didn't find an answer.
I am new to ASP.net altogether and it seems like 2.0 (the current release) is the best place to start. I am supporting a website that is currently written in classic ASP with the scripting in VBscript. I taught myself the necessary tools to do this. We are using a MySQL database.
Now the question. The options are overwhelming me. Can anyone offer an opinion, regarding both sequence and language options, on how to learn ASP.NET 2.0.
I'd be more than happy to tackle ASP.NET 2.o but should I learn Visual Studio 2005 express or Web Matrix, Visual Basic 2005, Visual C# 2005, ...
Thanks for any help.
