I am going to seriously crack away at ASP for a while and master it. I have a good book, but wa wondering what is the best ASP creator/editor tool ?
I have Interdev but my cd player is bust at the moment so I can't install it !! Os this the best application to use or is there any others that are better or at least match interdev..
I have heard chillisoft and allaire home site, what about these ?
How long do you think it will be before I can build asp sites ?
Also would it be worth investing some time in microsoft sql server and vb/java script also whilst learning asp, or might that confuse me ? I will obviously be using vb script to learn asp anyhow, but might it be an idea to vbscript at the same time.
Also PERL. How is this created. Do you hasve to use a platform for creating this code and what is it generally used for ? It can be used with asp right ? Also what platform do I have to get to learn to program Perl then ?
Sorry for all these questions, but I am still at an early stage if web development..
The best ASP creation tool is no longer on the market. It was replaced with Dreamweaver UltraDev (which in my opinion is a program with the same bad interface as its older sibling). If you can, try to find a copy of Drumbeat 2000. If that doesn't work you can try Visual Interdev or Homesite, both of which are much better than Dreamweaver Ultradev in both features and interface issues.
I personally use Textpad for the majority of my editing though I will use Homesite and Visual Interdev if their features will save me time.
I actually use MS Visual InterDev for all my ASP editing..I know its not the best but I don't have DrumBeat. I like it!
Also, for ASP resource sites try out www.aspfree.com.
I am actually looking around for DrumBeat myself...if anyone knows where they are available please post something here!
Go to wrox.com. They have many books on VBScript, VB and ASP. They are among the best in their fields.
Most books I have read don't assume you know VBscript but will have scripts in VB. Again check the beginner books from Wrox. They are very helpful and you really can't learn ASP on an NT platform without learning VBScript along the way.
