I get the impression that php is closer to ASP than ASP.NET and JSP is closer to ASP.NET than ASP... I could be totally off on that though
Thank you for that alykins.
Can you tell me a bit more? I've purchased ASP.NET tuts from various places, however nothing that I've come across seems to be as straight forward as HTML/CSS/PHP tuts.
Is there any type of CMS for ASP.NET or JSP? Do you guys hand code every single page when making a site? How does it work? Again, the tutorials I've come across are rather remedial, and I learn WAY better circumstantially.
ie - I learned PHP not by knowing and memorizing the list of ENDLESS commands, but by finding tuts that dealt with what I wanted to accomplish and then trickling to down to the required basics from there.
