This week, highly regarded specialist online book publisher, Sitepoint, launched an updated resource for web designers, developers and programmers. In the fourth edition of ‘Build Your Own ASP.NET 4 Website Using C# & VB’, the company delivers the foundations for building just about any kind of website.

Its step-by-step format was designed to ensure its usability by even those website designers with little more than a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS. And, according to Sitepoint, this streamlined approach to ASP.NET is long overdue.

“Authors Christian Darie, Wyatt Barnett, and Tim Posey have succeeded in providing web developers with a rock-solid foundation in theory and then take them by the virtual hand -- guiding them through practical exercises.” said Sitepoint Co-Founder Mark Harbottle.

He continued: “In addition, owners may also access downloadable examples from every chapter, in both VB and C#, which they can take away and use in the real world.”

Visual Basic and C# are the two most popular languages used for creating ASP.NET websites. With the aid of ‘Build Your Own ASP.NET 4 Website Using C# & VB’, web developers who are well versed in PHP, Java and Ruby will, believes the Sitepoint team, find the transition to ASP.NET easy.

Learn By Doing

“By taking a ‘learn by doing’ approach, Darie, Barnett and Posey show how to put theory into practice, in a cohesive and logical way.” explained Mr Harbottle. “An actual project is taken on a concept-to-completion journey, demonstrating how ASP.NET 4 works, and is applied in the real world.”

Each chapter in ‘Build Your Own ASP.NET 4 Website Using C# & VB’ builds on the one before, introducing new technologies. It reveals techniques that streamline tasks that, for web developers, were previously time-consuming and cumbersome in classic ASP.

Key learnings include:

  • How to set up the free software you need for ASP.NET.
  • Build a complete website from scratch using ASP.NET.
  • Use the code examples for your future ASP.NET projects.
