Introduction to ASP.NET

Learn how to use Microsoft's Visual Web Developer to create exciting, interactive, and polished Web sites with ASP.NET. You'll begin this hands-on course by adding powerful controls to your Web pages, giving visitors the ability to interact with your Web site. You'll find out how to connect to a database, read the information stored inside, and display it exactly the way you want. You'll find out how style sheets make it easy to give every page of your Web site the same clean, consistent, and professional look, and you'll learn how to create master pages to ensure that each page you create uses a common set of controls.

Using ASP.NET's powerful membership features, you'll develop a true community-based Web site that allows users to register, log in, create and update profiles, and post messages to a forum. You'll explore the issue of Web security, and you'll discover some simple things you can do to protect your site and prevent the most common types of attacks.

Introduction to ASP.NET Outline
Expand All
Week 1

You'll see just what makes a Web site tick and we'll work together with a Web browser. You'll also discover how the better sites don't just send Web pages to a browser, but rather they create and customize pages right on the spot to produce an exciting user experience. Then, you'll start creating Web pages that include buttons and text boxes, which visitors can use to submit information.

Week 2

In this lesson, you'll delve further into creating interactive Web sites, picking up a few programming tricks that will help make your life easier. One such technique is the use of object-oriented programming. You’ll also see how you can write code that will run on the Web server in response to the user interacting with your Web page by pushing buttons. Then, you'll combine everything you've learned so far to make some really attractive pages that incorporate various styles and controls.

Week 3

In this course, we'll focus on VB.NET, and in this lesson, you'll see how you can keep track of small pieces of information using variables. You'll create a really cool calendar to try out some of the techniques you’re learning—and see just how incredibly easy it is to do. Then, you'll see how to connect to a database, and you'll learn two ways to display this data on a Web page in the browser.

Week 4

Get into the nuts and bolts of databases as you see how data is stored using relationships. Then, you'll discover how to use a simple, special language called SQL to read data from a database.

Week 5

In this lesson, we'll see how you can make all the pages in your Web site look similar using Master Pages. Then, you'll get to pull together everything you've learned and start building your own community Web site.

Week 6

In this lesson, you'll finish building your community Web site. You'll put together pages that let users create profiles. Your users will be able to type in the text for their profiles and provide images to go with them. You'll also create a page that lets visitors view the profiles of other users. You'll find out how to present your users with a list of everybody in the community. And you'll even create a forum where people can exchange messages. And finally, we'll cover the important topic of Web security. You'll learn how to protect your Web sites from hackers and prevent some common types of attacks.

When can I get started?

A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!

How does it work?

Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.

How long do I have to complete each lesson?

Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
