    getting better at ASP

    I have no "black belt" question as yet.....I'm learning ASP, and I'm
    familiar with basic stuff. I'm starting a new job next week and they use
    ASP technologies. I have a couple of questions:

    1. What is a good reference (book/online) that I could refer to in learning
    more advanced things in ASP?
    2. What is the best tool for creating ASP pages? Interdev doesnt seem to
    like me too well.
    3. Should I make the jump and start learning ASP+?.....is it much different
    from ASP 3?

    I've become more interesting in web programming (considering I'm a VB geek)
    and ASP to me is like HTML on steroids. I already have started building my
    ASP book stack with two books, and I'm sure i'll be buying more. (if i
    could earn frequent flyer miles for the times I visit my Borders bookstore,
    I could fly around the world twice hehe)

    Any suggestions?

    Thankx,
    Deb

    Hello Deborah.

    I am a big fan of the on-line resources, there are just so many great ASP
    sites, a few of the great ones listed here:

    http://www.4GuysFromRolla.com
    http://www.asp101.com
    http://www.learnasp.com
    http://www.aspfree.com

    Also, I would recommend my first book for beginners (Sams Teach Yourself
    Active Server Pages 3.0 in 21 Days - http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...uysfromrollaco)
    and Wrox's Professional Active Server Pages 3.0 (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...uysfromrollaco).

    ASP+ is something very interesting, and I am very excited about it... but
    realize that it is still about a full year away from being RTMed... ****,
    we don't even have the first beta out yet (although this will probably (hopefully)
    happen before the end of this month)!

    I'd suggest sticking to ASP for now, and worry about ASP+ later down the
    line, after you've worked on solidifying your ASP skills...

    I think the world of ASP and really enjoy working with it... I hope you find
    it to be as neat and rewarding... Happy Programming!

    Re: getting better at ASP

    Thank you for responding Scott. I seem to be on the right path, because I
    already got your book, and I already have 4GuysFromRolla bookmarked. =)

    I too am a big fan on on-line resources, considering I have strategically
    placed my computer desk in the living room, so there's no reason for me to
    get up from here, as long as I don't lose the key to the lock on the chair
    (hehehe).

    Thanx again Scott!!

    Deb
