Learn how to create exciting, interactive, and professional Web sites with ASP.NET. In this hands-on course, you'll begin by adding the power of interactive controls to your Web pages, and you'll discover how you can use style sheets to give every Web page you create the same clean and consistent look and feel. You'll find out how to connect to a database and put the information it contains on public display. Then, you'll develop a true community-based Web site that allows users to register, log in, create and update profiles, and post messages to a forum. You'll also explore the issue of Web security, and learn some simple things you can do to secure your site against some common attacks.
- Discover how a Web server can create and send dynamic files to a browser, install the free ASP.NET tool, and learn a bit of HTML.
- Build a complete Web program that accepts a user's name and prints a friendly message displaying it.
- Create an interactive form that allows users to add items to a list box and to check which item is selected.
