By Francis   Posted at   11:47 AM   ASP.NET Books 1 comment

Most of the college students who are doing their final year projects (especially computer science students) and beginners are asked about the below questions:
  • How to start an ASP.Net Projects?
  • What are the basic Software I need to code .Net?
  • What are the books I referred to become better programmer?
In this post I just want to guide those people by providing some basic tips.

Prerequisite – Skills:
The below are the must have skill sets that are required for every beginner in ASP.Net.
  1. .Net Architecture (CLR and BaseClass Library)
  2. C# or VB.Net Language
  3. ASP.Net (Web Form, Worker Process, AppDomain, Session, Cache, Authentication etc)
                    It is better how the .Net frameworks works which helps to the developer to grasp the rest of the things easily. If you want to go with ASP.Net you should learn any one of the .Net compatible language such that C# or VB.Net. ADO.Net always deals with Database related objects like Datasets, Datatables etc. In beginner level choosing Web Form will give an easy to move, way in ASP.Net. The above lists are specific to .Net.

Prerequisite – Software

Before start your project you need the below softwares:
1. Visual Studio
2. .Net Framework
3. SQL Server
For students and beginners express version of visual studio is enough. While this writing Microsoft released Visual Studio 2013. You can download the Visual Studio 2013 express for web development here. With that installation, .Net framework 4.5 also installed. So there is no separate download is not necessary.
In the meantime, Microsoft also introduced Visual Studio Community Edition, which is a complete set of IDE. So instead of going with Express Edition, you can try it. You can start download it from here.
Each and every website that are developed are data centric or data driven. That are data are stored and retrieved from a database like SQL Server. So you must need that one also. For SQL Server also Microsoft provide express version. You can get it SQL Server 2008 Express with SP2 here and SQL Server 2012 here.
For the above software installation you must need Windows 7 with SP1 or Windows 8.

Some Good Books for ASP.Net:
Below are my personal suggestion to sharpen your skills in ASP.Net as well as .Net Languages such as C# and VB.Net in some extend.

1. Programming ASP.Net By Dino Espotio (From Microsoft Press)
2. Professional ASP.Net 2.0/3.5/4.5 (from wrox publications)
3. C# 4.0 – The Complete Reference By Herbert Schildt

Online Tutorials & Trainings for ASP.Net:
                       For ASP.Net technology, there are so many good online tutorial sites available. Some of them for your reference:

What do you think?
