    hi
    i am a new bie to ASP... its been three days since i have been doing ASP and by now..i have done.. the basics.. i have done the basic syntax.. the loops.. the control constructs and all. I have come to a block now.. i really don't know what else i should learn in ASP.. I have also looked at the Sessions and Application object handling on sitepoint only. Please help.. tell me what else i should master in order to be considered as a good ASP programmer. Please also give me a few resources.. where i can find material to read.

    Well, I think the best way to learn ASP is in this kind of order...

    1. Basics - date formatting, If...else...end if, case select, formatting strings.
    2. Response Object - learn how to the write to the page etc.
    3. Request Object - learn how to retrieve information from visitors
    4. Session/Apllication object/global.asa - learn create state and pass information from page to page
    5. DB Interaction - learn how to interacte with a DB, ie. adding/removing/editing records
    6. COMs - learn how to use the ones that come with IIS and ones that are available on the web. Possibly learn to write them



    Thats what I thnk you need to cover.

    You can find stuff at:

    http://www.asp101.com
    http://msdn.microsoft.com
    http://www.aspin.com

    And here of course

    Is there anything else

    hi..
    i just visited hotscripts.com.. its a very good resource...thank you
    Anyway.. is there anything else... i mean.. when we talk about databasing.. what are we talking about.. just the usual function such as adding,deleting,updating and displaying records..
    Is that all.. or is there something else to it as well.

    Hello Khalid

    do you have a specific project you want to work on in ASP? I find the best way of learning a language is to actually do something practical with it, rather than trying to learn it in an abstract way. Then you can decide what aspects are important, based on what you need to do.

    Hope this helps,

    Veronica

    hi veronicay
    That is part of my problem.. i don't have a specific assignment to do in ASP yet. But i am working in a software house and i know that i am going to get a project pretty soon and it is completly going to be based on ASP. So i just want to be well prepared for that. I don't want to then start learning about ASP.
