Default Tutor-led ASP.NET courses

Hi

I'm new to ASP.NET using VB.NET and I'm desperate to try to get on to a classroom-based course.

I'm based in the UK Liverpool.
If anyone knows of a course local to myself that would be very much appreciated.
Or if there is anyone out there that is local to me that can give me a couple of lessons that would be fantastic.

Only other problem I have is that I work for a charity. This means I have little or no money to be able to fund my development in this area.

I know it seems like I'm reaching out in desperation but I'm really keen to learn this technology and help to move my web skills to another level :D.

If there is no help available then I will just have to resort to book-based learning. Bummer . No problem with doing this it'll just take me a lot longer to get my head around it. But this forum will probably help me immensley.

Thanks in advance.

Take care

Keith

You need to get the book on the 70-305 certification test by Mike Gunderloy. This is the best way to learn ASP.NET from a book. It has a lot of small examples and it covers the subject very well. This is very good even if you don't want to get certified. My son is using this book now. I used the companion book for C# by Amit Kalani.

It's actually harder to learn from a class because ASP.NET is a very big subject. If they only have a 1 or 2 week class, they will move very quickly and you will miss a lot.

The book on ASP.NET Website Programming is NOT a beginner book. Please don't try to learn from this book because it will be very frustrating for you.

Thanks for the tip.

I've just ordered the book off Amazon. Look forward to getting in to it.

Cheers

Amazon are also offering "MCAD Training Guide 70-310: Developing XML Web Services and Server Components with Visual Basic.NET and the .NET Framework" (also by Mike Gunderloy) as a package. Do you have any experience of this book?

All of Mike's books are good. The 70-310 is for web services.

You need to look closely at the Amazon deal. They make it look like you're getting a special price, but if you add up the price of each book separately you often see that there is no extra discount for buying them together.
