Murach's ASP.NET 4 Web Programming with VB 2010

by Anne Boehm
23 chapters, 836 pages, 365 illustrations
ISBN: 978-1-890774-60-8

If you know how to create Windows applications using Visual Basic, you're ready for this latest edition of our classic web programming book.
It will get you off to a fast start with web programming, no matter whether you're coming to ASP.NET 4 with a background in an earlier release of ASP.NET, classic ASP, Java servlets/JSP, PHP...or with no web background at all.
In fact, by the end of chapter 4, you'll know how to use Visual Studio 2010 to develop and test multi-page database applications for the web.
But this book is much 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.


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 skills like:

  • State management
  • Data validation
  • Database handling with SQL and object data sources, as well as with time-saving data controls like GridView, DetailsView, FormView, ListView, and DataPager
  • Designing and formatting web pages with cascading style sheets (CSS) and the CSS tools that ASP.NET provides
  • Using master pages, themes, and site navigation features to create user-friendly interfaces
  • Handling common frustrations, back-button refreshes, with ease
  • Getting started with ASP.NET AJAX to improve application performance
  • Deployment of web applications on a remote server
  • Developing tested WCF services that can be hosted by a web server and accessed by multiple applications, running on any platform

3 reasons why this is the ASP.NET 4 book to get first

  • All of the ASP.NET features are presented in the context of complete applications. That includes the web forms, the aspx code, and the VB 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 2010. This IDE is one of the keys to development productivity, yet many books still 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.
