ASP.NET 2.0 Programming: Problem Design Solution is aimed at describing, designing, and implementing a site much like the ones you’re probably working on or will be soon, while taking the opportunity to introduce and explain many of the new features that the new great ASP.NET 2.0 framework offers. Difficult problems are addressed head-on so you'll be ready for most of the problems you’ll typically face when writing a modern website, and have one or more solutions ready for them.

This book is remarkable in many aspects, and the approach of studying a commercial website allows to cover a variety of very helpful techniques in ASP.NET 2.0. You'll learn many useful aspects of ASP.NET 2.0, instead of focusing on every domain of the framework. Also, the quality of the studied website exceeds the quality of many popular commercial websites throughout the web...

One of my worst gripes about ASP.NET books is that they routinely go over an extensive tour of every single little component, but dedicate very little time and space to each component and more importantly they do not show how these component fit together in a real application. So you are left with all pieces of the puzzle in your box, but no strategy for putting them together. Granted, most programming book even in the JSP/Strus/JSF area do only show toy examples of applications... but that's better than nothing! Well Marco has accomplished even more in this book, showing how to build and real life application.
The Beer House (a web site for an imaginary pub) has security and role management, themes, profiles,rather sophisticated strategies for data access, and shows you how to build an international site with articles, newsletters, forums, polls and even web parts! And last but not least it's a fun project...who isn't tired of the boring lifeless examples usually found in technical books? Seeing an programmer like Marco who takes joy in what he does and can mix fun and business is always a good sign....
It's clear that he has spent countless hours building various web content management systems on his own.. and he's had a great idea in putting his expertise in this book. I just wonder why more developers don't do the same thing! My only little complaint is that I would have liked to see more space devoted on how to build the UI. Yes, I know, this is not a book for beginners, but I have yet to see a book that covers how to effectively use the ASP.NET data bound controls.. they usually devote just a page or two to each, usually showing just one example of their possible uses.. and I think that there are many developers out there who could benefit from such a study, not even counting those coming from other platforms, who are veterans in OO programming and building business logic but much less versed in the intricacies of Visual Studio Wizards.
I would not buy this book right now anyhow.. because two new books from the same author are upcoming..
ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution
ASP.NET 3.5 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution
and I am sure they will be even better than this one!

This book is a must read for any ASP.NET web application developer (Beginner to Intermediate). I have learned and developed quite a few new concepts and ideas in a more practical and example/goal oriented approach. Very helpfull for live application development/Project challenges. Different from other books which just talk about what is there in ASP.NET 2.0 but seldom talk about how to bring all those features together to build a complete solution. The author makes sure to give a breif overview/background of the feature before diving in to make use of it.

A must read for any ASP.NET web developer who is looking to put all the features together to build a solution! Two thumbs up..Can't wait for the 3.5 version. HAPPY CODING!

The content in this book deserves better formatting. The code samples are in font so small and embedded as images. The result is that the "Zoom" feature helped little, and the code required being tethered to the laptop. I could not use this book for more than an overview. Disappointing to see that the publisher did not use text for the code.

So far, I am enjoying this book and following the desing and solutions sections. They are very helpful! I was familiar already with 1.1 framework bit not with 2.0.
