View Full Version : .net technology question

03-01-2005, 11:51 PM
I just started reading an old book I had bought about ASP 3.0 abd it got me thing about the .Net technology. I don't really know that much about it can some one fill me it? Is it worth reading about the older ASP stuff or should I just drop it and go to the newer .Net Technology?

What do you all think

Classic ASP/vbScript is being phased out now. It's being replaced by ASP.net which is far more powerful and reliable than classic asp. However, I'm sticking with php:D

It isn't worth learning classic ASP, however I think that some (or most?:confused: ) of the functions of it have been added in ASP.net. However I don't know, as I'm not a ASP developer.

Thank for the info. I think that I will continue on with setting up my computer with apache and php, wjicj is what I started out to do in the first place! Since I can't afford the .net stuff anyway and apache and PHP is free.

What of the .net stuff can you not afford? and what is not free? The IDE (http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/default.aspx?tabIndex=4&tabId=46) , the web server (cassini) (http://www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=6&tabid=41) , or the framework (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=262d25e3-f589-4842-8157-034d1e7cf3a3&displaylang=en)

and if you believe that ms is evil and all that mess then there is always mono (http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page) or how about something that runs off a CD (http://www.monoppix.com/)

I would dump asp/vbscript and go with .net or php.

I've never liked ASP - I tried to learn it a while back, but came too confusing and difficult to program. PHP on the other side of the stick is great. I dont know about ASP.NET tho, as I have never used it.

Thanks for the info allida77! I thought that you needed the Visual Studio .net from Microsoft to be able to use and learn the .net stuff.

I have stoped reading the old ASP 3.0 book on everyones advise and got a book from the Library about asp.net. Since I am out of work right now I go through the want adds in the paper and see a lot of openings looking for people that know SAP. Dose anyone know what SAP is? It dosn't have anything to do with creating web pages does it?
