Getting started with ASP.NET and C#

Hello,

I am an ASP (VBScript) developer.  I have decent skills with JavaScript as well.  I would like to start developing in ASP.NET using C#.  I have been using web matrix but am not really familiar with Visual Studio .NET.  I do not have the background in the more formal VB or C# languages.  I want to get up to speed as quick as possible but make sure I am using best practices.   I am familiar with a few of the .net basics and have developed some basic pages using vb.net.  I also would like to use these new skills for SharePoint Portal 2003 modifications and .NET Web Services.  I need to start with basic C# concepts and move on from there.

What books, tutorials, webcasts, websites etc do you recommend I use for this transition?

Some tutorials on the basics of C#:

    http://csharpcomputing.com/Tutorials/TOC.htm
    http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/Tutorials.asp
    http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/

Asp.Net:

    http://www.asp.net/Tutorials/quickstart.aspx

There are plenty of books on the subject, Sams tend to be good for the basics, Wrox are better for more advanced topics or if you are researching a specific topic.

Well,

for starters, you can download as soon as possible Visual Web Developer Express from microsoft: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/vwd/download/

Then I suggest you go on http://asp.net like carl_tawn mentionned. Next, I would terribly suggest using a book, it'll save you time. A good book would be this one from Wrox publishing:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0764588508/sr=8-5/qid=1143748990/ref=pd_bbs_5/103-3276649-2177423?%5Fencoding=UTF8

Good Luck!

Does Visual Web developer express only work ASP.NET 2.0, should I only be concerned with 2.0?

If you're just starting out then you should go straight for 2.0.

1.0 and 1.1 are already considered legacy by Microsoft.
