Default 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.

Dale

Hello dear first of all Ur always welcome o ask any question. Now the ans for u is u can start learning asp.net any where because it’s too easy. You have some working experience with older technology that will help u too to learn something new.

But sill if u go from starting it will help u in long run. Start from some good text of wrox (or any other as u wish) and after that u can better decide where u go next.


I am not like every body else.

Thank you for your response. You're right, when I started learning Classic ASP I just jumped in. That sounds like a good plan here too.

Hi

I am still on my learning curve but we do now develop in ASP.Net 2 quite a bit in our company...

The steps I took was...

'Wrox Beginning ASP.Net 2' - Read it like a story!... This also steps you through using Visual Web Developer Express too (which is pretty similar to VS 2005).

Now everywhere I go I have both 'Wrox Professional ASP.Net 2' and 'Wrox ASP.Net 2 Instant Results' under my arm.

Particularly Instant Results is a hit as it explains concepts/ implementation as well as theory.

Man, I should be given a Wrox T shirt & cap!

Ta

Rit
