Advice needed.

What book/forum/learning tool is recommended for a beginner to pick up and run?


I can do most of what I need via html, this is very basic.

I would like to do much more.

MSDN videos and quiokstarts might be a good resource.
A good book is always better - but it does take time to go through.

Happy to go through slowly.
I do not need to be up to date, merely on a 'Can Do' basis.
I just want to be on a constant learning curve.

But if you recommend the MS site then good, I will take the time to follow it through.

Vidoes might be a good way to start. So if you can get some good startup videos on ASP.Net - nothing like it.
Books from Apress.com has always been very good. Take a look at this[^] one. It is for beginners but still is comprehensive enough.

Thanks, that looks like what I need.
I have made several websites, but they are pretty crude and nasty, I do need to get better.

My pleasure. Have good luck on your quest for knowledge.
My couple of suggestions.

Books are always great. Ebooks[^] too.

Tutorials like W3Schools[^] is really easy to beginners.

Then forums like CP[^], Stack Overflow[^] are good for Questers.

Also videos like PVT[^] is easy to beginners, Also Techonvideo[^] which contains many categories.

E-learnings[^] too.

MSDN[^] also great one.

Other things are Whitepapers[^], cheat sheets[^], etc.,

Some people has great blogs[^] which will helps others.

Last & least Search engines[^]

Note : Added sample URLs for some categories.

I started programming with C# here.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/beginner/bb308760.aspx[^]

That was 6 or 7 years ago so it might look different now.
Just go Tier 1-3 at the bottom.
If you dont want the web approach you can click windows development at the top.

After Tier3 I had enough information to go further on my own doing what i was aiming for.
I had no programming experience when i started so it sounds like you have a better base then I did.
   
Hi
First you go through some videos about basic in youtube
then you can try http://www.w3schools.com/ASPnet/default.asp[^]

then you go for asp.net official website
http://www.asp.net/[^]

then code project http://www.codeproject.com[^] for questions and answers

by this time me u'll have better idea where to go further ...

thanks
naufal
