More About the Author

I grew up in Symington in Lanarkshire where my mum and dad had a local post office and grocers. I discovered my interest in computers through the Sinclair ZX80 whilst still at school and the interest was increased on a visit to Glasgow University where I saw a Commodore Pet in action. Thanks solely to my mother and father who trawled the papers looking for jobs and colleges, I ended up at Motherwell Technical College where I gained an SOND in Computer Data Processing.

Having studied at Motherwell Technical College as it was then named, just across the road from Fir Park football ground home of Motherwell FC, including day release at Ravesncraig Steel woorks, I then moved to two years at the Scottish College of Textiles (S.C.O.T) in Galashiels. Although a textile college this was one of the best colleges for computing due to the small class sizes and the great facilities there. At S.C.O.T I gained further COBOL experience on an IBM mainframe. This was also where I met my first real computer game, Collossus Cave! An excellent adventure that kept most of the students engrossed for months! I also met some of the best people at this college, a few who I still keep in contact with. College is a great place to move in to adult hood.

From S.C.O.T. I found my first job which was with Texas Instruments in Bedford. This is was a whole new set of thinking with working in a big organisation where you compiled your code on a mainframe in Dallas from your computer in England.

I stayed with Texas Instruments for just over a year having been under the wing of a big Brian Nicholson. I met some great people there as well but time moved on and I ended up in Hemel Hempstead with Atlas Copco and then on to Link Associates in Chesham, Bucks. A software house by trade, gave me great exposure to new programming languages and how to develop with them, as well as exposure to client Asset Management and the retail industry.

After just over 2 years it was time to break out on my own as a consultant. My first consultancy lasted just over 8 years with Save & Propser in Romford, Essex, England. Still on mainframes I used a Computer Associates product called Ideal.

During this time I started to teach myself Clipper, then on to FoxPro and FoxBase almost at the same time, using FoxPro to write a generic Fantasy game simulation and FoxBase to look after a postal football game I inherited called Sick Parrot. I soon moved on to Visual FoxPro which gave me the insight to the joys that are Object Orientated Programming. This allowed me to move jobs in to Lehman Brothers.

I soon learned the restrictedness of having the programming language along side the database language and so taught myself Visual Basic (v5) and SQL Server (6.5). Very soon after version 7 of SQL Server came along so I moved straight to there and avoid some of the problems with 6.5 solutions. I also taught myself Visual Basic 6 where I completed some work for Rohbe Inc using SQL Server 2000.

Moving from this point I have moved through ASP, SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2012, C#, Visual Basic.Net, ASP.NET, Java, Sybase and many other technologies through leaning on the job or reading and working travelling to work. And I am still learning today.

Format: Paperback
The many authors have gathered a potentially useful array of components, designed for ASP.NET 1.1. The uses are manifold. If you are still new to ASP, the coding of the components gives many extended examples for you to learn from.

More to the point, you might already be writing in ASP for your website. Thus you might want to see if any of these prebuilt components might save you some development time. The authors have tried to make components that will likely often be required in a website. Like a file uploader or RSS reader.

The only component I wonder about is the Chart. It lets you add pie charts and histograms of data from a SQL Server onto a webpage. Well coded. But surely there is by now a proprietary or free package for ASP that does this charting and far more elaborate graphics. It seems such an obvious need and the .NET platform is important enough that some company would have built such a package. Then again, your graphics needs may be straightforward enough to use Chart, or a simple modification thereof.

Book review: "ASP.NET 1.1 Solutions Toolkit"

APress has done it again. I really enjoyed the theme and focus of this book, as it deals directly with custom control development and function-centric tools built with ASP.NET. The utilities presented are practical, timely, and those that any modern-day web programmer will need or has considered at some point.

I'm didn't find the title to properly connote the content within, but it's certainly a great read.

My favorite examples are the RSS Reader, Globalizable Page, and Reviewing Control, being new, up-to-date features most web sites need these days. And the Chart, Straw Poll and Search Engine examples show new takes on old standards. Many of the examples deal with pattern-based programming, which is helpful.

The only two major detractions I think the book exhibits are the tight-knit binding to Visual Basic .NET for code examples and marriage to Visual Studio .NET.

All in all, this is a great read that even experience ASP.NET devs should go through.
