Summary: ''. . . the highest simplicity of structure is produced, not by a few elements, but by the highest complexity.'' -Ralph Waldo Emerson, ''Goethe; or, the Writer,''Representative Men,Chapter 8 In November 2005, version 2.0 of Microsoft's .NET Framework and ASP.NET was released along with a new version of its Visual Studio development environment. This new version of ASP.NET significantly increased its power as well as its complexity. When I first began teaching Web application developm ...show moreent back in 1999 with classic ASP, I could teach my students the essentials of ASP in just two weeks. Of course, to create a sample application of even moderate complexity in ASP required the students to do a great deal of coding. Now, with ASP.NET 2.0, it requires almost two-thirds of a semester to teach my students ASP.NET. The students, however, now can create a sample application of substantial complexity. That is, although ASP.NET 2.0 can be complex, it can dramatically improve a Web developer's productivity. Thus, to paraphrase Emerson, after the developer has grasped and comprehended the seeming initial complexity of ASP.NET, he may very well be struck by its ultimate simplicity, even its beauty. This book endeavors to help the reader make the transition from complexity to simplicity. That is, it tries to make the process of learning how to create realistic Web applications using ASP.NET 2.0 less daunting for readers who are unfamiliar with ASP.NET, as well as for readers who are somewhat familiar with ASP.NET but want to learn how to use it more effectively. As part of the process of learning how to create realistic Web applications, this book also endeavors to stress the importance of proper programming and design principles. When first learning ASP.NET, a developer is often tempted to focus all of her attention on using the many different Web server controls along with the Visual Studio Designer. This is quite understandable given the rang ...show lessEdition/Copyright: 07
