Should I learn ASP?

    I was wondering if I should take the time to learn asp. It seems like it can do some neat stuff.

    Where is a good place to start?

    Agree w/ ASP.NET; and use C# instead of VB.NET.

    Asp.net + c# * 2
    with asp.net you can build a full membership site with a few clicks and 3 lines of code. its so productive. it lets you focus on doing what your clients want and not how you gonna do it.

    If you've got the basics of any programming language under your belt, you can pick up any language in a day or two. Just go through the syntax of each construct like loops, selection, function, and program flow.

    I cut my teeth on PHP and then learned good programming practice at University with no specific language being taught. I'm fairly confident nowadays I can switch to any language and learn it's basic principles quick enough.

    So I tested it- picked ASP up in two days and while it's got some really handy points I dislike it. But bleh.

    If you have a sound understanding of PHP, ASP won't be a problem.

    I just notice that the really big major sites are mostly ASP or JSP , most of the "i wish my site was like myspace" is php.

    do i need to download the .net studio thing? can i build asp.net sites on my pc or do i have to have a certain host?

    If you have Windows XP Professional, I believe you can install your own personal version of IIS 6.0 which will give you access to ASP. It might work for the home edition, but I think it's restricted version of IIS in that respect.

    By installing the .NET framework (version 3.0 is the latest) IIS will automatically support ASP.NET. You can download a year's trial of the .NET studio. It's known as the Express edition and you can find more information on it from this handy link 'ere.

    I think if it is the first language you are learning I would suggest php as it is more common, however if you already know php then yes why not.. learn asp

    I am still not completely sure. What exactly do I need to start running and learning asp.net?

    is the .net framework, not free and expensive?

    ASP, now known as classic ASP, is on its way out! Don't bother. If you're keen on Microsoft then go ASP.NET

    Better still, go PHP.
