Visual Studio, Is this a good place to start in web design?
I have tinkered with Vis Studio but anything beyond VB6 is just confusing
me (especially C++ and J++).
What are the best package(s) to start off with for internet development ?
(would like to incorporate ASP and CGI)
What are the benefits of ASP / CGI ?
Re: Visual Studio, Is this a good place to start in web design?
Assuming you can "handle yourself" in vb, and are somewhat familiar with
HTML (tags and so-forth), pick up a book titled "Beginning E-Commerce with
Visual Basic, ASP, SQL Server 7.0 and MTS" by Matthew Reynolds published
by Wrox Press. The title is not as scarey as it sounds.
The book will take you through building an e-commerce site, but along the
way you'll learn some very basic things.
The book uses Visual InterDev to build the site, and what was once extremely
intimidating to me is now becomming less so.
Another good book is the "ASP Developer's Guide" by Greg Buczec published
by McGraw Hill. The first 3/4's of the book is really meant to read, and
the last 1/4 takes you through building a site. This book will touch on and
explain alot of those things you've heard about or read, but could never
find out what they meant.
Aside from the above, just go to a good book store and find the book that's
right for your level, and dig in...
