What is ASP.NET?

ASP.NET is a server-side technology for building web applications using the Microsoft .NET stack. These links will give you a general appreciation of the technology, and how it differs from other web technologies.

WebForms vs. MVC

One of the fundamental choices when working with ASP.NET is the way the application will be set up. The two main choices are Web Forms and MVC. This section describes the differences, and how to choose between the two. The rest of this guide assumes Web Forms. For MVC, see the ASP.NET MVC Learning Guide (coming soon).

Basic Syntax

Working with Controls

Controls are the common tool used in ASP.NET Web Forms to display content. This section contains articles about creating, and working with, ASP.NET controls.

Working with Data

Data is a common component of web applications, and ASP.NET makes retrieving, displaying, and editing data relatively easy. This section describes some of the ways of working with data in your ASP.NET applications.

Authentication / Authorization / Personalization

This section describes securing your ASP.NET applications. This includes controlling who can access your web application, as well as how to avoid common security errors. In addition, it covers articles about personalizing your web application for the authenticated (and non-authenticated) users.


As web applications may be accessed from anywhere, you will likely need to ensure your application is localized, and global-aware. These articles describe the globalization capabilities of ASP.NET.
