Default Transition to .NET..... how difficult?


I am experienced in writing ASP apps, but wish to switch to ASP.NET for an upcoming project.

My question is simple: how difficult is it to make the transition to .NET? With the help of demos etc, is it quite easy to get something up and running and take it from there? I will be learning on-the-fly rather than doing formal training at this stage. I need to know what size of animal this is.

I would say that it would be fairly simple for a programmer to switch to ASP.Net. I would suggest getting the following text: ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution.

Dear Friend,
It is not very difficult if you know the asp.

The change will in syntax and 30% in understanding new terms and some definitions.

Overall I think if you provide daily 3 hours then in 2 months you will be running on .net.

I'm not convinced! I am a very experienced programmer (30+ years, multiple languages) and I'm finding that the simple stuff is straight forward, but the things you need to do for an industrial strength application are a lot harder. It seems that by burying many features into the .Net 2.0 controls, it's a lot harder to do things that aren't described on the "surface" of the control. And no book I've found is adequate. I learn from reading books, from brute force testing, from many web searches and pfrom osting questions (few of which seem to get answered). At this point if I had to develop something quickly I'd use either old ASP or Coldfusion.
