Pro ASP.NET 2.0 in C# 2005, Special Edition Finally Matthew and I did it - it’s out. This summer during my vacation we finished our work for the special edition of Pro ASP.NET 2.0 in C#. And it’s available on Amazon already. It was really hard work as Apress wanted us to do this in a very short amout of time. We extended the book with some great content based on the feedback we’ve got in the past months from readers and during real-world projects. And we addressed the AJAX hype and unveiled more technical details on AJAX in ASP.NET incl. ATLAS preview. And it’s finally our first paper-back book:)…

Some of the extensions (besides to the CD with all the samples as well as eBook versions of 18 other Apress titles) we’ve included are:

  • Web Application Project for easier migrating ASP.NET 1.x applications
  • Web Deployment Project for a more streamlined compilation model using aspnet_merge.exe
  • Creation of MSI setup packages (which is still interesting for ISVs who are creating products)
  • Additions to advanced Web Parts such as dynamically loading user controls and exporting and importing web parts between different web part pages
  • Using Membership in WinForms applications
  • Custom Resource Providers if you want to manage your localization resources in a database instead of the .resx files
  • More details on the ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX infrastructure and low-level AJAX component development
  • A detailled chapter on ASP.NET ATLAS (which will finally now will be released by end of this year)
