    ASP.NET, what do you guys think?

    What do YOU think about ASP.NET? What experiences have you had? Did it feel good? We're NOT comparing this to PHP btw, PHP is my sundae with cherries, and we're about to discuss the whip cream!

    I've used ASP in the past - nothing but praises. The experiance was good and relatively painless; great tool for web apps. Also, look into a free addon called WebMatrix, it offers some cool things.

    I'll just second what Axon said. Perfect for web apps.

    I heard ASP was a pain to program in from reading websites a long time ago, and it got much better for ASP.NET. Do you believe this is true?

    Actually I was just speaking for just ASP.NET. I haven't done as much with regular ASP, but from where I stand I'd definately say that ASP.NET is superior - especially with all the perks that come with Anything.NET

    Code:
    define ASP ASP.NET

    The reason I'm asking these questions is because I'm going to be delving in ASP.NET very soon. Port 8080 has opened the door this evening, and I'm going to walk through and see what happens! I hope my computer doesn't blow up!

    i dont really know about .net, but i've coded in regular asp (old fashioned you might say ) and it's a breeze to learn. i dont expect .net to be much harder. i'd agree that you could do cool things with asp; the acces database comes to mind because you dont need the sql servers installed to write semi efficient database applications (hopefully you can still do this with .net).

    I'll admit it's easy to work with considering it's .NET...and i never thought i'd say it but I'm starting to use VB.NET...but I don't think I'll be using asp ever...it's just not for me.

    Of course it's for you! You can make ASP.NET pages in VB.NET. VB.NET is awesome! I switch from web design to programming all of the time, it's like experiencing nirvana. If you're on Windows: IIS, if you're on Linux then MonoXSP. I'm running Apache + PHP, and MonoXSP + ASP.NET (the latter one started last night).

    I use the web skills for my programming. I have a program browser for all of the source I've done in a folder, and if I click on a source file, it opens:
    highlight.php?/thefolder/anotherfolder/thesource.c
    And that php file grabs the contents of the file and displays it color coated.

    So in other words Waldo, you can have your web/programming skills working together. And if you want a head start on ASP.NET:
    Editing Source is the Best Way To Go

    Haven't used ASP.Net, but from what I hear on CSS mailing lists, it's pretty hard to create real standards-compliant code with it.

    If you drag and drop the controls, maybe. I use VS.NET, but I write the HTML/CSS myself and don't use the designer. My sites are compliant and written in .NET.

    im sure microsoft will one day try to make .net the standard, but there are so many people who use php, it doesnt look possible.

    ASP.NET has its advantages, and disadvantages over php, just like it does over asp, and such.

    I made one site by using ASP.NET and it was a real fun experience, but you better have vs.net cause trying to make an asp.net site in notepad is more trouble than its worth.
