    Default Where to begin

    This may have been asked a hundred times before, but where should the classic ASP developer start with .NET. Presumably we need to get the operating software etc from MS. Can anyone recommend a good book. I am looking at Worx&#039;s Professional ASP.NET but at nearly £50 (Sterling!!) it&#039;s a big price to get the wrong book.<BR><BR>How steep is the learning curve? I&#039;ve done a bit of OO stuff, and my SQL programming is pretty good. Is it possible to stick with VB?<BR><BR>Thanks.

    Chill, let me highly recommend Sams Teach Yourself ASP.NET in 21 Days. I did not write it, but served as consulting editor for the project. It&#039;s a very good book for those coming from a classic ASP background who need to get up to speed with ASP.NET.<BR><BR>You can read a sample chapter at:<BR>http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/chapters/TYASPNET21/<BR><BR>and you can pick up a copy at:<BR>http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0672321688/4guysfromrollaco<BR><BR>(Priced at 23 sterling)<BR><BR>Also check out http://aspnet.4GuysFromRolla.com<BR><BR>I also taught a class on beginning ASP.NET. You can check out the course Web site (there are PowerPoint slides and code examples) at:<BR>http://www21.brinkster.com/ucsdteaching/<BR><BR>(although the site appears to be down right now)
