.net integration, depoyment and architecture advise

Hi All,
I am mainly working with Java/J2EE and open source stack like php,perl for last 10 years.

I have a new project to take care built purely on MS .net  platform. I am looking for advise to understand how .net development environment works? I have read comparisons with j2ee so I understand some of the pitfalls of .net

I am looking for some crash course on
1. .net Development Environment
2. .net Application deployment methods
3. .net tools used for performance analysis
4. .net architecture

Its almost the same, just different syntax slightly, and a couple of different

Also, we dont use classes the same way as java. You can, but its not class based.

Now, what you havent specified is which language, or Flavor of aplication you would like. Vb.net (more visual) c#.net (more programmer orianted)

The microsoft websites will show syntax and examples for both.

Since you are java oriented, i suggest  C# as you dont need all the fancy stuff VB.net has (drag and drop everything and have code autocreated for you, although c# has similar)

With C# you have similar expressions like Int x = 1
VB.net is a ittle different from C#/Java (DIM x as integer = 1)
I think its more cumbersome in some ways

For your goal, start with the harder language, but easier for transition

here is your tutorials
