ASP.NET Upgrade Coming Soon!

2020 UPDATE: am currently in the process of adding lessons for ASP.NET. I expect to have them finished very soon. When they are released, you will get a FREE upgrade if you have purchased any of my ASP lessons after August 1st, 2020. In the mean time, continue to learn ASP 3.0 (or Classic ASP as it's called). It is still a robust, powerful language and is a great "first step" to learn server-side web site processing. Honestly, it does everything I need. The web site you're using right now runs on Classic ASP and I have no need to upgrade! But, there are some things that ASP.NET does make a little easier, and I'll teach you those things soon enough.

Active Server Pages (ASP) is a technology to create dynamic Web pages - pages that change for each user. You can use ASP to create customized pages for your visitors, query databases, and even build entire e-commerce solutions.

ASP 101 is the perfect class to get you started. We assume that you have at least some experience building basic Web pages. We recommend our FrontPage course as a pre-requisite, but as long as you know how to build a simple Web site (using any editor) that's OK. We also recommend our Visual Basic course first. ASP is based heavily on VB, and if you know a little bit of VB before taking ASP, it will help you - but it's not required.

ASP 101 covers: Key ASP Definitions, Components of an ASP Script, Basic ASP Commands, If / Then / Else Statements, HTML Tags in ASP Scripts, Variables & Loops, Performing Math in ASP, Processing HTML Form Input, Using the QueryString. Click here for the complete outline: ASP Outline

If I don't have a website, is there a way I can test my webpages?

Reply from Richard Rost:

There are a couple of personal web servers available that you can install on your home PC. I haven't researched them in a while so I can't provide you with any links (check Google). However, you can get dirt cheap web hosting now for under $10 a month from many providers. If you want to set up a web site, that's the way to go. Read More...

I wanted to take a go at ASP. However, i cant find Microsoft Front Page on my computer. What i have is Microsoft Office Access, Word, Excel, Groove, OneNote, Powerpoint, InfoPath, Outlook and Pulisher. I checked under Microsoft Works but Front Page is not listed either. What alternatives do i have? Read More...

I noticed that the asp commands entered are started with a capital.  For example, Response.Write has the R and W capitalized.  It is neccessary to capitalize asp commands?

Wade, this is really a question for your ISP. Check with them to make sure your password is correct.

I don't believe Microsoft offers it for any operating system beyond Windows 98 anymore. If you have Windows 2000 or XP Pro you should just install IIS (Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Windows Components > IIS). That's their full "Internet Information Server" that real web sites use. Read More...

The address you give for a Personal Web Server from Microsft is apparently no longer current. Do you have an up to date address?
