Default Kinda overwhelming

I am mid way through chapter 3 and understand most of it. But tracing through the source code it seems so complex.. More than the ASP.NET 1.1 version. I wonder maybe it would have been better to split the book into 2 parts where you complete a simplified version of the site and then go back and add the more advanced features.

Or maybe have a Chp2 version of the site a Chp3..Chp4.. etc..

So I could pick apart the site without having the entire site to go through

But overall I like it.. I just am worried I am not going to be smart enough to comprehend it all.

I'm almost through chapter 4 and aside from my problem with the Admin menu option (see my earlier post) I've had no problems with browsing the site at anytime. If you right click on the "Default.aspx" file in the Solution Explorer and click "View in Browser" the site should run, provided you have no errors.

I have the first book and am gld to see that Marco uses the new ASP.Net 2.0 controls and explains how to incorporate the DAL and BLL into a working site.

It takes time to learn this stuff, but it's much easier to develop websites on 2.0.

Since the basic plumbing is easier now, we can drill down more on features and business requirements. This is what our clients want us to do!

It may take you some time of playing with the site and reading the text to really "get it". Just give yourself some time to learn, and make sure you get some "hands on" with the code in the download.

Ill be on here with some questions as I read through the book.

I have been looking at a site i can look at te be sort of a bible of how to code.. so this and the

'Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 E-Commerce' book seem to work.. that book has a BALLOON SHOP example which is about twice as simple to understand.

im surprised there are about 7 reference books for every one of these style books

After reading one reference book I have no desire to read any other... but books that build sites from the ground up are much more interesting to me
