    Learning ASP.NET

    Hi,

    Some how im not getting the basics of ASP.NET , it just goes over my head !!!

    Does any one know some ***EXCELLENT*** place to start learning ASP.NET, Ive got a good hand over ASP (VBscript) and Visual Basic.
    I just need a good site that would take me thru the learning process soundly.

    For me, having learned Java prior to any .NET was a big help. The main reason I think is that they are both entirely object oriented.

    Although a bit tedious and virtually impossible to find the same thing twice in - the msdn library and associated sdk documentation is virtually all you need.

    Is there a specific area you're having trouble with?

    Have you tried the quick starts and getting started at http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/ ?

    What experience do you have with OOP (Object Oriented Programming)? If you do not have any yet, buy some books about OOP concepts. That will be your biggest learning curve (by very, very far) compared to procedural programming. Note that I am not speaking about knowing how to use objects, but rather how to design and implement objects.

    Otherwise, try ASP.NET Professional (used to be from Wrox Press, now maybe with APress). This will give you a good start about ASP.NET by itself.

    VB6 is not really OOP. It lacks some of the fundamental principles of OOP (inheritance more specifically). As I mentionned above, I recommend ASP.NET Professional as an excellent book to start with.

    Cool! Remember one important thing: many people program in ASP.NET like they used to do in VB6 or classic ASP. You will not get the full power of .NET if you do that. So learn OOP! Study UML and design patterns as well. Once you grab what OOP is really all about, you will never want to come back from it! You will even wonder how you could have developed without it before!
