Murach's ASP.NET 3.5 Web Programming with C# 2008

by Anne Boehm and Joel Murach
29 chapters, 1000 pages, 455 illustrations
ISBN: 978-1-890774-48-6

If you can create Windows applications using C#, you're ready for this book.

It will get you off to a fast start with web programming, no matter whether you're coming to ASP.NET 3.5 with a background in an earlier release of ASP.NET, classic ASP, or Java servlets/JSP...or with no web background at all.
In fact, by the end of chapter 4, you'll know how to use Visual Studio 2008 to develop and test multi-page database applications for the web. No other ASP.NET book gets you started that fast.
But this book is more than a beginning book. By the time you're done, you'll have the professional skills you need to develop bullet-proof web applications for business. You'll also find that this book does double duty as the best on-the-job reference book that money can buy. No other ASP.NET book teaches you so much of what you'll use every day...or so thoroughly.
Everything you need to know to get going on web development
Look at the table of contents, and you'll see why we say that this book covers what you need to know to develop web applications at the professional level. That includes new 3.5 features like:

  • Tools that make it easier to format web pages based on cascading style sheets (CSS)
  • LINQ data sources that allow you to access data from any type of data source, not just databases
  • The ListView and DataPager controls that allow for complex data handling that you couldn't do before (one reviewer refers to them as "GridView and Repeater on steroids," if you're familiar with those 2.0 controls)
  • ASP.NET AJAX basics that show you the benefits so you're ready for indepth AJAX training
Of course, it blends those new features with the classic features that still apply to any ASP.NET application:
    State validation…database handling with SQL and object data sources...using master pages, themes, and site navigation features to create user-friendly interfaces…security…login controls to authenticate users…email handling...back-button control...reusable user and custom server controls...web customization using profiles and web parts...deployment...and more!

3 reasons why this is the ASP.NET 3.5 book to get first

  • To make sure that you learn ASP.NET as quickly and easily as possible, all of its features are presented in the context of complete applications. That includes the web forms, the aspx code, and the C# code. We've found that applications like these are the key to mastery of web development…but you won't find them in most competing books.
  • To save you time and effort on repetitive chores, this book shows you how to get the most from Visual Studio 2008 as you develop your applications. This IDE is one of the keys to development productivity, yet many books neglect it after the first couple of chapters or ignore it entirely.
  • If you download a free chapter, you'll see that all of the information is presented in "paired pages," with the essential syntax, guidelines, and examples on the right page and the perspective and extra explanation on the left page. This not only helps you learn faster by reading less, but is also the best reference format that you'll find anywhere.

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Amazon Echo Plus (Second-Gen) Review

The second-gen Amazon Echo Plus is shorter, louder and better-looking than ever. What's not to like? Here's our review.
Should I Buy The Amazon Echo Plus (2nd-gen)?
The new Echo Plus offers a radical redesign compared to the original, ditching the plastic body for a fabric mesh housing that helps the speaker blend into the home environment. It’s not only better-looking either, as a larger speaker and tweeter provide improved audio quality and Dolby Play 360 audio support helps fills the room with music. What’s not to like?

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

Nest Thermostat E Review

The Nest Thermostat E is a no-brainer in the US, but it's a trickier sell in the UK thanks to a price that's much closer to the similar third generation Nest
Should I Buy The Nest Thermostat E?
The Nest E is a great smart thermostat that’s comfortably among the most stylish and easy to use on the market, but as it stands in the UK, there’s not much reason to opt for the E over the existing 3rd gen Nest, which has some extra functionality for a similar price.It's a different story in the US though - a bigger price gap makes the E an easy recommendation if you're in the States.
