Hi all,

Grateful for advice.

I am in the process of commencing work on a website. I am familiar with Frontpage but I was wondering whether I should embark on learning or adopting .Net technology. I should point out that I do not know anything about this technology.

In fact I do not know whether this is related to ASP or ASP.net.

I am aware that this is a very open question but I would be very grateful for some guidance.

Thanks

Depending on whether your current web exploits of time sensitive, you are better off learning .net technology through hands-on on the job training.

Hi sammyS,

So, should I do .Net in general or ASP.net or just ASP or should I go open source?

My biggest problem I think I'll face is downloading,  installing and/or setting up additional software. Everything is always presented as easy but in real life issues emerge that can stall work.

Thanks

ASP or Classic ASP is different from asp.net syntactically or semantically.

I started out using classic asp, became very fluent and then transitioned to asp.net which has some serious learning curves because you are used to coding one way.

.net or asp.net - same thing but different flavors.

You have asp.net vb flavor, or C# or jsp.

You choose which one is better for you based on your orientation and familiarity.

There are various development tools like Visual Studio, Expression, Visual Developer (various versions).

Expression and Visual Web Developer are free but Visual Studio is not.

The link I posted will provide some foundational understanding.

You may grab a couple of books as well.

FInally, as you learn, you can always come back for questions.

I have been doing .net now for over a year and I still have lots of questions.

I regularly post questions on this forum - questions I could not answer myself and there are experts here on this forum to assist.

Good luck
