I am diving head-first into the world of .NET 3.5. And not having the support of my employer, I am flying solo, using the Express versions of Visual studio.
I ordered this, and hoping it will be a promising reference for me.
Well truth be told the book is excellent, a very good reference to add to my collection. It doesn’t have a lot of ASP.NET information in it and I really need help in this area. See, simply, I am UI challenged. When it comes to writing web front ends, forget it. Sure I have done a good bit of web work, but most of it was hacking on stuff already put together.
No I wonder my next step. Apress has two C# ASP.NET books and I am not sure which one to get. There is a Pro book and a Beginners book.
They both have good ratings but I wonder if the Pro version will just be more information that I care about and may skip over some basic things I don’t understand about web UI design. On the other hand the basic book may be too basic and not add any “meat” to its explainations. I don’t learn as well if I don’t understand why something is doing what it is. I guess it’s time for a trip to the bookstore and flip throuh some pages. I wonder if my family will ever let me out to do that…
