Welcome to ASP+
Well, since I asked for this group to be opened, I might as well welcome you
I believe that ASP+ is going to change many programmer's lives. Already our
developers are playing with it and learning it and they are effusive with
praise about ASP+ and C# and VS.net.
In the meantime, so you can catch up, I've put together a list of great
resources that I've found so far (a new site seems to pop up every hour, so
I'm sure this list will soon be quite inadequate).
Have fun and please do participate! The only way we can learn is for you to
Re: Welcome to ASP+
Thanks for the suggestion and the list of addresses, that you have provided.
If you could, pls post me, some Vb7 sites, and or mailing lists and also

These are all the sites and mailing lists I know about that have anything to
do with C#, VB.net (it's not VB7 anymore), or VS.net: The list is getting
longer by the hour, but so far this is everything that I've seen.
Hope they are useful to you. Please feel free to send new resources to
email@example.com and I'll add them to this list.
