ASP.NET 3.5 Fundamentals

by Fritz Onion, Scott Allen and Keith Sparkjoy

Learn how to build modern, responsive Web applications on the Windows platform using ASP.NET.

What you'll learn

ASP.NET has established itself as one of the most productive environments for building web applications and more developers are switching over every day. The 2.0 release of ASP.NET builds on the same componentry of 1.1, improving productivity of developers even further by providing standard implementations of common Web application features like membership, persistent user profile, and Web parts, among others. The 3.5 release adds several new controls including the flexible ListView and the LinqDataSource, as well as integrated suport for ASP.NET Ajax. This course will introduce practicing .NET developers to the comprehensive Web development platform that ASP.NET has become. We will cover fundamentals that have been in place since the 1.0 release, as well as all of the newer features found in the 2.0 and 3.5 releases with an emphasis on understanding how each new feature works and when to best apply it.
