Default Beginning ASP.NET 3.5 available now!

Beginning ASP.NET 3.5: in C# and VB is also available as of yesterday some US online retailers, you can order it now and they will ship it immediately. You'll probably see it in US brick and mortar stores within a few days and overseas in a couple of weeks.

Imar Spaanjaars who is the #1 most helpful person EVER in the p2p.wrox.com forums (7,983 posts and counting!) has written a fantastic all new book for us for ASP.NET 3.5. The two big changes for this edition are that for the first time, we're covering both C# and VB in one book. We hope that will make it a lot easier for beginners to pick a book. And, sadly, the Wrox United English Football club has been disbanded. Yes, for many of you who cut your teeth on ASP.NET 1.0 learning the Wrox United sample site, it is no more. From an editorial standpoint, it's a bittersweet change. The fantastic (even legendary) author team anchored by Dave Sussman, Chris Ullman, Chris (Goode) Hart, and John Kauffman along with the many others who contributed to many editions of this over the years has gone their own ways. I wish we all could have kept doing that book forever but all good things must come to and end. My hope is that this new book by Imar is the first in a new legacy and makes the original authors proud. Thanks Dave, Chris, Chris, and John for your years of dedication and great work. And thanks Imar for taking on the work of 4 people yourself.

I got this book and lent it to a co-worker of mine, who is just learning ASP.NET. He loved the book a lot; he's considering buying his own copy. He said he had trouble putting it down, as it's an easy read, not dry reading at all.

It's a very good book for any beginner looking to learn .NET. Imar is a very talented guy.
