About the Author

Alex Homer is a software developer and a technical author living and working in the idyllic rural surroundings of Derbyshire dales, in the heart of England. Rather than doing a real job, he's discovered the raw excitement and frustration that comes with installing and playing with the latest and flakiest beta code he can find - and then he writes about it. A long-time evangelist of ASP, he has been delving deep into the world of .NET and has emerged a confirmed convert to ASP.NET. You can contact him at
Alex Homer contributed Chapters 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, and 15, and all Appendices 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

Karli Watson was an in-house author for Wrox Press with a penchant for multi-colored clothing. He is now the technical director of 3form ( He started out with the intention of becoming a world-famous nanotechnologist, so perhaps one day you might recognize his name as he receives a Nobel Prize. For now, though, Karli's computing interests include all things mobile and upcoming technologies such as C#. He can often be found preaching about these technologies at conferences, as well as after work hours at drinking establishments. Karli is a snowboarding enthusiast, and wishes he had a cat.
Karli Watson contributed Chapter 21 to this book.

Richard Anderson is an experienced software engineer and writer who spends his time working with Microsoft technologies, day in day out. Having spent the better part of the decade doing this, he is still remarkably sane! Richard currently works for BMS software - an ADP company - where he is a technical architecture manager. Richard is currently working on the development of a large-scale Internet-based payroll and HR system.
Richard would like to say thank you to his wife Sam for giving him all the love, support, and understanding a man could ever wish for. Richard would also like to say hello and thank you to all his freinds, especially the other authors of this book, and his great workmates (Andy, Graham, Jon, Paul, Drew, Steve, Chris, and so on).
Richard Anderson was the lead author for the previous version of this book - Professional ASP.NET 1.0 Special Edition.

Format: Paperback
I have not bought a book from Wrox since ASP 3.0 because the quality of book went downhill. Now they just write the books to 'sell' not to help people. I tried this book in the hopes that they may have changed, boy I was way wrong. Book all it does is talk talk talk but not show much... All this stuff is stuff I find on the MSDN and online resources. I mean, what they use to write for material!!!! The MSDN????

HASH(0x9fcd92c4) out of 5 stars Thorough, good examples, screenshot heavy Jan. 9 2005
By Jack D. Herrington - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of those great all-in-one tome books. Some of which are great, like this one. While others are little more than doorstops. The text is well written, though, like most Wrox books it relies heavily on code to do most of the exposition. Almost every topic you can think of is covered. Basic topics like controls, page design and security. Then onto more advanced topics like XML and mobile development. That's how you get to the tome size. But the coverage is consistently well written. So if you like your books in the all-in-one flavor, this is a good book for ASP.NET 1.1.

HASH(0x9fcd9318) out of 5 stars Most Strategic ASP.NET Book Going! Sept. 14 2005
By David C. Owens - Published on
Format: Paperback
Given some initial hurdles, I fervently believe that Alex Homer's (plus 5 other authors) "Professional ASP.NET 1.1" is the most strategic book going, to really learn to program in ASP.NET. Or, from my life, it was the best thing I found after 3 years and more than $1000 worth of .NET-programming books.

In true fairness, I believe the up-front hurdles are NOT the authors' fault. Rather, they come from the massiveness, and the version-one nature, of .NET. Among my .NET-student peers, I have heard a strong consensus that NO .NET training class (one example, even from a world-class university), or book prepares you to "really program". So, before attacking Alex's book, you must "make your peace" that some work is required. For example, I recommend that you struggle to pass 70-315 certification. After 2-3 tries, or so, I think you'll start to see the "worth" of Alex's book; far better than many alleged test-prep books.

Finally, I recommend that you also develop the skills to convert Alex's examples to Visual Studio. While the "worth" is already there in the text-only aspx-page examples, I found the graphical nature of the Studio to be delightfully soothing to my "student" mind. For hours at a time, despite my habitual irritation with IDE marketing, even I was impressed with my own programming "power".

If you are really serious about getting ASP .NET knowledge and you are in real development environment where you need in depth knowledge of ASP .NET paradigm and controls, then this is the book for you.

I highly recommend this book for all types of developers, beginner, intermediate or advanced.

HASH(0x9fcd9b10) out of 5 stars Good Suppliment for the Exams Oct. 26 2004
By P. Turner - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a good suppliment to Microsoft Traning material for passing the Web exam. A little thin in some areas and a few errors but overall not too bad.

HASH(0x9fcd9bf4) out of 5 stars A good book to waste your time and energy. Feb. 8 2006
By Mile - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a book that just dumps in a lot of spaghetti uncoordinated meaningless text where you have to brake your head every other paragraph to find out what the authors intended to say, then this book is for you. I am going to list the points I don't like about this book:
a. Paragraphs are very hard to understand.
b. The code is just thrown inside without explaining it.
c. Ideas are repeated all over to just build bulk.
d. Almost no technical depth.
e. Doesn't get to the point.
By the way, I am an experienced programmer with over 8 years in the industry, so I suppose my opinion counts.
