Default ASP.NET...

I am currently an asp.net/vb developer. I learned this on my own. While I don't know all the terminologies like polymorphism, inheritence, etc. I have been developing applications ever since 2002. I need to know what book I could buy that gives me these missing pieces. I applied for another position, but froze because I could not explain what design petterns were; and I understand all .net developers should know this term and and explain it. Please point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Question ASP.NET

@Imar - Thanks so much, but how about the rest, ' am currently an asp.net/vb developer. I learned this on my own. While I don't know all the terminologies like polymorphism, inheritence, etc. I have been developing applications ever since 2002. I need to know what book I could buy that gives me these missing pieces'? Will the suggested book cover these as well?

I guess it all depends on what your missing pieces are.

For patterns, this is an excellent book. For OO you may want to look at book such as http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...470261293.html. Also, books like Pro C# 2010 or Pro ASP.NET 4 may help deepen your knowledge.

I think you'e best off looking at these book and then read their TOC's and Index so you can get a feel about the topics they discuss.

Cheers,

Imar

I like Imar's suggestion, that is a great book.

I will also add Head First Design Patterns. A lot of Head First's books are not especially effective, IMO, but the authors of the design patterns do an excellent job of explaining where design patterns come from. It not only covers principles like inheritance, polymorphism, etc., it explains the theory and demonstrates by example how you apply those principles to arrive at design patterns that make your life easier.
