Fantastic book. A must have for begginers!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Beginning ASP.NET 4: in C# and VB (Paperback)
Im an amateur programmer. My background is VB6 and have failed several times along the years trying to understand and use .NET (VB.NET, ASP.NET 1 and ASP.NET 2). I decided to try once more, now with ASP.NET 4, and bought the unbelievely awful Microsoft ASP.NET 4 Step by Step (Step by Step (Microsoft)) book. I thought that, once more, I just lacked the skills to understand this technology but then I read the reviews of this book made by other people and saw that I was not the only one having issues with it. So I went for another book.
Browsing the books about ASP 4 I read great reviews about this book by Imar, so I ordered it. Two weeks studying it and I'm already building the website I need for my company. And that includes CSS styles, AJAX, jQuery, databases, master pages, navigation, security... This book is just amazing. Imar manages to include in less than 800 pages all you need to know to start building rich features websites, and does it smoothly and with ease, always working over a growing example very easy to understand. I haven't found a single error in the code samples yet, and haven't found either in the Internet an easier way write the code than the one used in this book. Besides strongly recommending this book to whoever wants to start building ASP websites, I really want to thank Imar for this great job. One of the best tech books I've ever had.
I have already ordered Professional ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB also by Wrox. I haven't received it yet but I'm regreting in advance that is not also written by Imar.
