course provides a comprehensive and practical hands-on introduction to developing Web applications using ASP.NET and C#. It includes an introduction to using ASP.NET AJAX to build rich client applications. ASP.NET is introduced as a Web programming platform that overcomes a number of limitations of ASP. Its architecture is outlined, including the role of compilation, the Page class and code-behind. Web Forms are introduced, including server controls, view state, life cycle, and the event model. Request/response HTTP programming using ASP.NET is covered.
Additional server controls are introduced, including menus and master pages. Data access is covered in some detail in two chapters, including an introduction to ADO.NET, Language Integrated Query (LINQ), and the powerful data access controls provided by ASP.NET. There is further discussion of security using membership and roles, and personalization features such as themes, skins and Web parts are introduced. This section of the course is tied together by a progressive case study illustrating a Web site for a publishing company.
