Build Your Own ASP.NET4 Website

We’ve got a brand new book, and you guys are the VERY FIRST people in the world to get your hands on it!!

This book is NOT available anywhere else right now. You get it FIRST, right here at SitePoint!

This fully-revised ASP.NET4 book is perfect for you if you’re a designer or developer eager to learn how to build rich and interactive websites. With the knowledge and skills you’ll gain by learning ASP.NET4 with SitePoint, you will have a solid foundation to build just about any kind of website.

1) Anyone new to web programming will be able to follow along …

If you like to “learn by doing” – then this is the book for you! Only a basic background knowledge of HTML and CSS is assumed, but the authors Cristian Darie, Wyatt Barnett, and Tim Posey take you on a fantastic journey where ASP.NET4 is fully explained.

Build Your Own ASP.NET 4 Website starts at the very beginning by taking you through the foundations, step by step. The chapters that follow gradually introduce you to new technologies, building on top of the knowledge gained in the previous chapters.

2) Includes enough working VB and C# code samples for you to use in the real world …

Do you have a preference for VB (Visual Basic) over C# or the other way around? You’ll like this book because is it literally jam packed with  code examples that are available in both languages.

3) If you have experience with prior versions of ASP.NET, you will still gain a lot from this book.

Things that used to take you hours in classic ASP, now are so much quicker with ASP.NET4.

This book teaches you how to put theory into a cohesive, realistic context. You’ll develop a real-life project through the course of this book. The project – an intranet site for a company called Dorknozzle – will allow you to see the many components of .NET in action, and to understand through practice exactly how .NET works in the real world.

We’re confident reading this book will be a fun experience that will significantly help you with your future projects!

  • Sorry, but an Asp.Net 4 book with a single chapter on MVC called “Introduction to MVC” is already outdated and out of touch with the .Net community. Already was when .Net 4 was still in beta actually.

    And the Ajax Control Toolkit? Microsoft has pretty much abandoned that in favor of jQuery. That happened in .Net 3.5 already. Why is this in a book on .Net 4?

  • Thanks for your thoughts, Charles, but I’ll maintain this 4th edition provides a first class guide to ASP.NET4 for the beginner or newcomer, as intended.

    There is, and will be, lots more to say about MVC but our focus here is on applying it to the book’s project. In that way, it’s a highly practical introduction, as claimed.

    As for jQuery, we could already put together a book on jQuery and ASP.NET (if we thought the demand was there … hint, hint). But all of that wouldn’t fit into what is already a sizable tome at 700+ pages.

    I’d also argue that, while integration of jQuery into ASP.NET4 is certainly going to grow, the Ajax Control Toolkit will in fact continue to provide an excellent introduction.
