Practical ASP.NET 3.5
ASP.NET is one of the .NET Framework’s core technologies. In its latest version it has been expanded to include native support for a huge range of new technologies (e.g.ASP.NET AJAX, Silverlight, LINQ, WPF and WCF).This makes the platform more powerful – and more popular – than ever before. This power comes at a price. The Visual Studio design environment makes it easy to put components together but provides little guidance as to whether developers are doing it in the best possible way. As a result they are often not getting the full benefit of the technology in their applications.
This book seeks to rectify this knowledge gap and provide developers with a hands-on guide to building applications for deployment in the real world. It covers topics such as requirement gathering, that are often neglected, and discusses the cost-benefit decisions that need to be made when introducing new frameworks or architectural ideas into a project. Throughout, the author provides readers with the benefit of his consulting experience and imparts tips, tricks and recipes to help oil the rails on which their own real-life projects will run. This book makes an ideal companion to a standard ASP.NET professional reference.
