Who Is This Book for?
This book is intended primarily as a reference and learning tool for developers who have experience in web development. Both professional and amateur developers will find this book helpful in making the transition from classic ASP (or other web development technologies) to ASP.NET.
This book is not intended for beginners or those with no experience with web development. While the tutorial section that begins the book is intended to bring you up to speed on ASP.NET quickly, it does not teach basic web development skills. Beginners or those with no experience with classic ASP would do well to find a good introductory web development book and then return to this book once they understand the fundamentals of web development.
