I have been a student of Spaanjaars for a while, using both his books Beginning ASP.NET 3.5/4 in C# and VB
. WebPages seems to be a very interesting framework and WebMatrix an excellent tool. I have been thinking about the relative merits of Web Forms and WebMatrix. The latter seems to be an good way to get quick results without the steeper learning curve of Web Forms. Is there a good discussion of Web Forms vs WebMatrix somwhere out there?
Gudni I too was wondering about the files when I downloaded initially, but after checking chapter 10 it doesn't seem worthwhile.
I agree WebMatrix is a great way to get quick results. I come from ColdFusion and WebMatrix "fits" my skillset better, makes more sense and gets me into ASP.NET faster! I realize C# is the "meat" code, but would rather learn it THIS way!
I'd been enjoying Spaanjaars book Beginning ASP.NET 4.0 in C# and VB
for the past 6 months, but while GridView and DetailsView demonstrate database interaction, they limit web page design and layout. At that point in the book (chapters 13 and 14), C# coding plays a larger part in what I need to do.
That said, the book is excellent and I don't want to detract from it in any way. It's a great book to have along with this one.
