    Does anybody know anything about ASP.NET for designing webpages. I need help with the graphical designing you can do where you drop and drag different componets but I really could use some good intro tutorials and I haven't found any while I was searching the web. I basically want to creat visual please websites that have some neat and cool tricks. All info is appreciated. Thanks.

    Microsoft makes a product called Visual Web Developer which is exactly what you're describing. Do a search for it in Google. It's included in Visual Studio and there's also a free trial available on Microsoft's website.

    If you want to learn how to use it do a search for

    Visual Web Developer for Beginners

    in Google and you can download some free video tutorials from Microsoft.

    You should also look into PHP for web development. PHP is free, open-source and there are tutorials for it everywhere (especially www.php.net). I think it's much better overall than ASP.

    Hi

    Just wanted to clarify brian394's response.

    MS also offer a free web developer called Visual Web Develper 2005 Express Edition. During signup at MS site you actually register for some online courses etc which are really good.

    Link to download: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/vwd/

    Thanks

    Yes! Grab Visual Web Developer Express but don't forget SQL Server Express as well. Both are free tools. BUT, if you are going to develop database apps with SQL Server Express, you actually have to make sure the server is running on the hosted webserver when you distribute your apps. Below are some KICK BUTT video tutorials that will seriously help you with development. I suggest watching them all:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/learning/learn/newtodevelopment/default.aspx


    Trust me with this...you will just be blown away by the power of .NET 2.0

    Well, You can also use MySQL, wich mostly is a lot cheaper than using MS SQL Server 2005 and MS SQL Server 2005 Express Edition.

    If You need a Personal Site Starter Kit for MySQL you can find it here: www . mrwize.nu

    couldn't post links yet ... not enough posts I thing :p
