Glad you're enjoying the book.
I am not a WSS expert so I can't share any gotchas with you. However, WSS heavily depends on the ASP.NET 2.0 framework, so you'll find that many concepts that work in plain ASP.NET also work in WSS. For example, you can use the same type of security features as explained in chapter 15. Also, the control architecture, with controls like Web Parts is similar (to identical) to that used in ASP.NET.
So, I think that in general, you can transfer most of your ASP.NET knowledge directly to WSS. That especially is true for programming skills for VB
.NET and C# of course.
Obviously, WSS comes with many features of its own, unrelated to ASP.NET so you still need to dig into that.
Take a look at some technical WSS articles here:
I am pretty sure you'll see some familiar stuff, even more so after you have finished the book.
Everyone is unique, except for me.
