ASP.NET Database Programming Weekend Crash Course
Description:Written by expert web developers from Price Waterhouse-Coopers, ASP.NET Database Programming Weekend Crash Course will quickly enable you to create dynamic data-driven web applications using Microsoft's exciting new .NET technologies.
Open the book on Friday evening and by Sunday afternoon -- after completing 30 fast, focused lessons -- you will have mastered the skills necessary to begin creating robust, dynamic, data-driven web applications with ASP.NET. Starting with ASP.NET basics, expert authors Jason and Tony teach you what they need to know to begin creating ASP.NET applications quickly, and then dive into building database applications with ADO.NET, Web Services, SOAP, XML and more. This book is a must have for any developer building web applications on Microsoft's new .NET Framework.
The author did a good job of presenting the subject brilliantly so that experienced CLASSIC ASP developers can get a quick introduction to ASP.NET in a few days. It started by taking you through database design and slowly takes you into ASP.NET
THOUGH THE BOOK SAYS IN 15 HOURS, but I managet to finish in 20 hours. Sometimes it may seem the information is too much, but after reading the book, I suggest you go over it again and all will be clearer and much more fun. I recommend it to all CLASSIC ASP and visual basic programmers looking for a quick route to ASP.NET
VB only and not for beginners, quiz questions and answers.
First of all we are talking VB only, no C#. It is not a beginners book, sorry. Otherwise the book seems ok, haven't read it though!!!
The book assumes that You can finish the book in a couple of days which is completely ridiculous.
However I very much like the quiz questions at the end of each chapter although there are very few of them for each chapter. But then again the answers is given at the end of the book.
All in all I would say that this book definitely deserves 3 stars.
