About the Author

Chris Ullman is a freelance Web developer and technical author who has spent many years stewing in ASP/ASP.NET, like a teabag left too long in the pot. Coming from a Computer Science background, he started initially as a UNIX/Linux guru, who gravitated towards MS technologies during the summer of ASP (1997). He cut his teeth on Wrox Press ASP guides, and since then he has written over 20 books, most notably as lead author for Wrox's bestselling Beginning ASP/ASP.NET series, and has contributed chapters to books on PHP, ColdFusion, JavaScript, Web Services, C#, XML and other Internet-related technologies too esoteric to mention, now swallowed up in the quicksands of the dot.com boom.
Quitting Wrox as a full-time employee in August 2001, he branched out into VB6 programming and ASP development, maintaining a multitude of sites from http://www.cuasp.co.co.uk, his "work" site, to http://www.atomicwise.com, a selection of his writings on music and art. He now divides his time between being a human punchbag for his 29-month-old son Nye, composing electronic sounds on bits of dilapidated old keyboards for his music project Open E, and tutoring his cats in the art of peaceful co-existence, and not violently mugging each other on the stairs.
Chris Ullman contributed Chapters 1, 14, 15, 16, 17, and Appendix E to this book.

John Kauffman was born in Philadelphia, the son of a chemist and a nurse. He received his degrees from The Pennsylvania State University, the colleges of Science and Agriculture. His early research was for Hershey foods in the genetics of the chocolate tree and the molecular biology of chocolate production. Subsequently, he moved to the Rockefeller University, where he cloned and sequenced DNA regions that control the day and night cycles of plants.
Since 1997, John has written ten books, six of which have been on the Amazon Computer Best Seller List. His specialty is programming Web front-ends for enterprise-level databases.
In his spare time, John is an avid sailor and youth sailing coach. He represented the USA in the sailing World Championship of 1985 and assisted the Olympic teams of Belgium and China in 1996. He also enjoys jazz music and drumming and manages to read the New Yorker from cover-to-cover each week.
John Kauffman contributed Chapters 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and Appendix B to this book.

Chris Hart is a full-time .NET Developer and part-time author who lives in Birmingham (UK) with her husband James. While she's most at home in the world of the Web, she's recently been working with the .NET Compact Framework. In her spare time, Chris spends much of her time playing with beta technologies, and then attempting to write about them.
Chris has contributed many chapters to a variety of books, including Beginning ASP.NET (Wrox Press), Beginning Dynamic Websites with ASP.NET Web Matrix (Wrox Press), and most recently, A Programmer's Guide to SQL (Apress).
When she gets away from computers, Chris enjoys travel, especially when it involves driving along narrow winding roads to get to out-of-the-way parts of Scotland. She dreams of building her own house somewhere where she can keep a cat.
Chris Hart contributed Chapters 10, 11, 12, 13, and Appendices C and D to this book.

Dave Sussman is a writer, trainer, and consultant, living in the wilds of the Oxfordshire countryside. He's been working with ASP.NET since before it was first released and still isn't bored with it. You can contact him at davids@ipona.com.
Dave Sussman contributed Chapters 7, 8, and 9 to this book.

Dan Maharry is a freelance writer, reviewer, speaker, and editor who has, in no particular order, taught English, Math, and Guitar, directed, crewed, acted in, and produced several plays and short films, been a film and music columnist for four years, co-founded ASPToday.com, rewritten his own at HMobius.com several times, opened an office in India, variously edited, reviewed, and written pieces of over 40 programming books, qualified as a sound engineer, and consumed enough caffeine in his lifetime to keep most of China awake for a week. Occasionally, he sleeps. Sometimes. Contact him at danm@hmobius.com.
Dan Maharry contributed Chapters 5 and 6 to this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book - But There Are Caveats April 15 2004
Format:Paperback
I have always been happy with the Wrox series, and this one is no exception.
The book starts out explaining about .net and getting you up and running with some "Hello World!" stuff and basic controls on a webpage. It then goes into various datatypes and describes some of the fun data structures built into .net and some basic stuff on how to use them. It then explains some basic c# functionality, and goes on to explain the object-oriented nature of it. After this, databases are discussed and how to connect to them. Much of the remainder of the book is spent developing a faux application which explores some of the more complex controls, some useful objects, asp.net security and how to use assemblies.
I found the style of presentation to be very clear. A concept is presented. A try-it-out section is given where you copy the code from the book, using the IDE etc. The code is then gone over line-by-line explaining what is going on.
The .net framework is huge, and I appreciated having this book so that I could learn the most important stuff first. There is so much that the book does not talk about, but it sets your feet correctly at the beginning of the path.
At times I would have liked more depth in the explanations of some of the code - things can get a little hand-wavy and you see stuff that just kind of plops there (why does he cast that object now, when before he didn't?).
But really, you can learn what you need quickly from this.
*Caveats*
1) The book assumes you are using the free WebMatrix IDE from Microsoft. Some others in the same book in VB complained that they got confused when they used Visual Studio. You have been warned.

2.0 out of 5 stars Professionals Be Warned... July 15 2004
By Vince
Format:Paperback
The examples in this book are built with a free product called WebMatrix. Most (if not all) professionals must use Visual Studio, which is the preferred development environment for all .NET languages. Learning ASP.Net programming without using Visual Studio will only take you half way to your goal.
WebMatrix is also used as the Web Server, so you won't get IIS exposure. If you are a professional, or want to be one, look for a book that uses Visual Studio and IIS.

2) The book claims to be "for beginners who have no previous experience with ASP, C#, XML, object-oriented programming, or the .NET framework. A little knowledge of HTML is useful, but not essential." - This is a joke. You need to know SQL, HTML, and have some kind of programming experience (VB or C++ - I know both) for this book to be useful. You don't have to know them very well, but you do have to have a clue. This book is *NOT* for people trying to create webpages with no previous experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed March 29 2005
By Michael T. Neal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Unfortunately this book did nothing for me. I was looking for a beginners guide for ASP.Net that would get me started programming with C# while learning the features of .NET. I chose Wrox because I found some of their other books very useful.

This book wastes alot of time on the Web Matrix which is both pretty useless for the beginner and the professional alike. If you are trying to be an ASP.Net professional, Visual Studio would be your choice. And if you are beginner you want to learn how to program the examples in C# rather than using the automated features of Web Matrix.

Basically I am returning the book and will have to find another company to help me in my web development learning process.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent book for the complete beginner. Feb. 20 2006
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a pretty decent book if you have no programming experience what-so-ever. If you do have programming experience (namely C#) then you will find a huge portion of this book completely useless.

This book starts off by teaching you how ASP.NET works. This is good information for any programmer to know, but after you learn that then it's all basics. You learn about data types, variables, properties, loops, events... pretty much all the most fundamental aspects of programming. This is not bad if you are new to programming, but like I said, if you know C# but don't know much about ASP.NET then be prepared to skip almost 1/3 of this book. This book also briefs you on OOP, but you will not feel confident in OOP practices - it's more like you learn the definition of OOP.

This book teaches you how to program using Web Matrix, which is a free web development/pseudo web-server tool. I see a lot of reviewers complaining about this, but I actually believe it's a good tool to start with. I believe it's good, especially for beginners because you aren't required to have IIS installed in order to start learning ASP.NET programming. This is good for new developer that don't have access to higher-end operating systems like Windows XP Professional. If you have Windows XP Home then you can use Web Matrix. I don't believe that it would be hard for a developer to move from Web Matrix to Visual Studio, especially since the IDEs are so similar. A big downside to Web Matrix is that it doesn't really utilize the whole code-behind idea (and no intelli-sense).

In conclusion I recommend this book to new developers that have no C# experience. If you are an experienced developer then I would only pick this book up used for less then $10.00 because you already know a lot of the information this book presents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book - you will learn to create real world websites! Jan. 10 2005
By G. Dias - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I needed to learn ASP.NET for a new project. I know HTML, VB6 and SQL but had no previous experience with ASP or other internet stuff. I was initially going to buy a similar book from O'Reilly but I like this one way much better even though it has some mistakes, typpos and pictures in the wrong places here and there. Wrox will probably fix it all in a second edition. In the mean time they could fire the people who did the revision. Things that other readers mentioned as a CON, I find a PRO in this book. Example: using WebMatrix instead of Visual Studio. WebMatrix is not as powerfull as VS but it is free and at the same time provides you with an Internet Server, so you can get started right away and don't need to spend extra money with VS. The book teaches you what to download and install and takes you step by step in building a complete website with most of the features you will find around an average+ web site. Also gives some brushes about XML, OOP, CSS and Databases among other stuff. It's a long book 800 pages, but with about 40 to 60 a day, with little more than 2 weeks you will be done with it. I couldn't believe I would go through all of it and I am already in page 500!! It doesn't have any cute pictures or icons or little jokes in it, but it will teach you step by step without telling you to click OK in every dialog. GREAT BOOK! Good luck to you!
