ASP to ASP.NET Migration Learning Guide

This Learning Guide examines the migration from ASP to ASP.NET and the upgrade to ASP.NET 2.0. You'll find articles, tutorials, tips, white papers and webcasts to bring you up to speed on the differences between ASP and ASP.NET and what to expect in the pending Version 2.0, which is slated for a mid-November release. Themes for the upgrade include improved developer productivity (thanks to code reductions) and a fully extensible platform, according to Brian Goldfarb, product manager, Web platform and tools, Microsoft.

Need a little motivation to finally convert your ASP applications to ASP.NET? Our newly updated migration guide can help by spelling out what to expect before porting your applications. Discover conversion tips and tricks, hands-on tutorials, articles, webcasts, online books and much more.

"ASP.NET is a technology for creating dynamic Web applications. It is part of the .NET Framework; you can author ASP.NET applications in most .NET compatible languages, including Visual Basic, C#, and J#. ASP.NET pages (Web Forms) are compiled, providing better performance than with scripting languages. Web Forms allow you to build powerful forms-based Web pages. When building these pages, you can use ASP.NET server controls to create common UI elements, and program them for common tasks. These controls allow you to rapidly build a Web Form out of reusable built-in or custom components, simplifying the code of a page."
