Hello, fellow ASP Professionals.
Most recently, I have embraced my company's switch to Microsoft and ASP .Net Powered solutions. Coming from a PHP/Djang & Python background this has been a learning experience with a lot of surprises in the power of ASP.
With a stronger background in VB .Net, I have chosen it for immediate projects while transitioning into ASP (manager wants either VB or C#). Grasping ASP concepts versus PHP has really been fun, intriguing, with little frustrations as well. Always knowing
needs to be done, then looking high and low for the ASP way.
Of course a few books and tutorials have aided along the way. My questions are these:
- can anyone recommend good materials to study that may be meaty for someone trying to learn ASP techniques as they relate to other web programming languages and frameworks (like Django and PHP)
- is it worth transitioning from VB to C-Sharp in the future? (I have been writing VB since about VB6 and am at a lower level in C#).
- Any useful tips to share?
The biggest problems encountered with materials are:
1 - from a 400 page book, it is hard to find the exact information needed: about 70% dry and 30% juicy information
2 - most books are ASP .Net 2.0 - 3.5. We are using .Net 4.5 and VS 2015
3 - Lots of information on ASP .Net but hard to decipher antiquated from current at my current level
Thanks for any input in assisting with my exciting transition to ASP .Net
