whats the best way to try and learn ASP.NET without having to spend a small fortune on Ms training??

I have frontpage 02 untill end of year can anyone recommend a decent book or site that will help with learning 2 use ASP.NET in FrontPage? Does FrontPage accomadate server side languages by the way or do i have to beg borrow or steal VS.Net to get ASP.NET exposure??

many thanks

Micorsoft has a free tool that is use for .Net for web if you can not get VS. VS is a lot better, but free is good too.


To learn, you just need a good search on google and msdn...that is how I got started.

I have a student version of VS....the way to go...

you can do nothing with frontPage just throw it !

use webmatrix as said A1ien51 if you cannot afford or find VS

But Visual Studio 2003 is a real development tool, and also helps you to learn NET langage, intellisense gives you all methods of what you ar typing

you have no to write and run a bat file for compiling, and so many things

a free Tool that you MUST get is Reflector (http://www.aisto.com/roeder/dotnet/) to learn how classes are built

thanks for all your help!

i really want to learn asp.net but im not going to get any exposure to it at my current job and i cant afford to spend money on training!

i will follow up on the sites, my only problem is im runnin win98 so i may have to upgrade to xp to run some of these free programs?

Thanks again
