ASP.Net 2.0 Points of Interest

December 2, 2005

Over the holiday weekend I read through new Professional ASP.Net 2.0 from Wrox, and I really enjoyed it. I came to it as an experiencedasp.net guy who has paid close attention to 2.0 until now (and man, am I in love!). The book was informative for me and actually I was surprised at the thoroughness. I would recommend it to anyone just starting ASP.Net as well.

When I read books and find information I may want to refer to, I usually start an index of the book. My bookmark gets filled with notes and page numbers. Now I don’t want to steal the thunder of the book, but I thought it may be interesting to list out my points of interest from this book. And hopefully you’ll be tantilized to go figure out what each tip means. 🙂

  • Page.RegisterClientScriptInclude()
