    So, I want ASP.NET...

    Help me out here, guys. I want to start getting into ASP.NET as well. I need suggestions:[list=1][*]Software. What do I need to get, where can I get it, how much does it cost, and can I scam it somewhere for free? (PM in answer to the last question )[*]Books. Who write the most comprehensive books for this so far? It seems Wrox is still the leader.[*]Articles. I need general articles, and preferably good article sites.[/list=1]Can anyone be of help to me? It'd be greatly appreciated. It's just something that I want to try to pick up in my alreayd limited spare time. Gotta keep up with the crowd.

    'Till next time..

    I own Professional ASP.NET from Wrox. At first I thought it was great, but now i'm starting to find mistakes and code that don't work in it. Also the book uses VB.NET but I prefer C#. I have it for 1 month now and it seems to me that the authors forgot what are the major features and improvements of ASP.NET over ASP. They almost forgot about Code-behind and they use code-inline all the time. Most of the samples are provided for download, and then you have to move from book to samples from samples back to book, because there is no complete code in the book only the parts of the code. So everything looks quite messy.

    I still use this book because it covers ASP.NET quite well overall(especially features of objects,methods, namespaces etc), but when looking for real-world examples I rather check Quickstart tutorials or .Net websites.

    DotNetJunkies.com is one of the best .Net sites.

    And when you start writing your code, I advise you to use Code-behind. It truly separates code from content.
    Personally I like ASP:Repeater and ASPataGrid most.

    ive only touch on ASP.NET slightly, but the ASP:Repeater kicks ***, and the response.trace rules
