  • User-75275877 posted


    I am looking for 2 books.

    1 - Asp.net 2
    By browsing this forum, I have read some good review about 'Professional ASP.NET 2'. Shall I get this one ???

    2 - Design Patters
    Is there a good book that gives practical examples of Design Patterns that are useable for developing web sites. During the days of Java development, I read following book http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/1861005288/qid=1140185580/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_2_1/203-7428891-5012760

    I thougt the above book was a good one

    I am looking for similar kind of book in Asp.net and C#.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks

    My recomendations are ASP Unleased 2005 and Headfirst Design Patterns. ASP Unleashed 2005 hasn't been released yet, but it will be well worth the wait.

    Let me second Ryan's recommendation of Head First Design Patterns.  This is perhaps the best programming book I have ever read, and one of the few I have read from cover to cover.  You would not regret buying this book.

    Please note that it uses Java for its code samples.  But have no fear; Java is very easy to understand, and you'll have no problem applying the design patterns to C# or VB.NET.

    Yes it is no major difference with c# and the book is good

     I bough Patterns in C# from http://dofactory.com/Patterns/Patterns.aspx

    and they had a project with all the samples in Head First Design Pattern book.

    See Bonus 2: Head First Design Patterns on http://dofactory.com/Framework/Framework.aspx
