WHAT IS ASP.NET and WHY IS IT SO GREAT?

ASP.NET is a platform for developing Web-based applications. It lets you create sophisticated Web applications that can interact with users. For example, ASP.NET applications can use data-entry controls (such as text boxes and buttons) to accept input data from a user; process, retrieve, or update database data; and send the results of these operations back to the user. ASP.NET isn’t the only platform available for creating Web applications. Popular alternatives to ASP.NET include PHP, ColdFusion, and several Java-based tools such as Java Server Pages and Java Servlets. ASP.NET differs from these alternatives in several significant ways.

DISTINGUISHING FEATURES OF ASP.NET:

  1. Windows and IIS dependence
  2. Object orientation
  3. Choice of languages
  4. Visual Studio
I dont think I need to elaborate on each of the features. Its more generic.. I wish to keep my intro post short and lets jump to building ASP.NET apps :-) ..

Till then keep coding and dont forget to freak out. Remember we are always geeks under construction!
