Where to start learning ASP.NET

P: n/a
I'm ineterested in learning ASP.NET, in conjunction with both C# and
VB.NET. However, i don't really know where to start.

Are there classes available at local colleges, or do i have to go
through microsoft to find classes? would it be easier to try learning
on my own by purchasing Dummies books and microsoft official books?
Would it be beneficial to pay someone as a private tutor to help me
learn it?

thanks in advance for the replies!

There is a lot of material out there to help you learn, there is even a lot
of free material out there to help you learn :)

for this I recommend asp.net unleashed by steven walther.

When learning you might want to make a website for yourself or someone else
along the way to learn and implement the things you have learned from these
resources.

Amai,

If you have prior experience in web application development, you can self
learn using quickstarts tutorial. There are also lots of resources that you
can find on the web.

If you are new to web application development, it might help to take
someone's help or some course to learn the basics. once you know the basics,
you will have to try out sample programs and can master asp.net. Experience
is the best way to learn..

My experience with web devolopement is few and far between,
unfortunately (programming side, at any rate). I've worked sparingly
with php, javascript, and some cgi, but that's the extent of my
knowledge (short some html and css).

i don't know if those can be considered basics, or even along the same
lines of asp.net and c#, but hopefully this gives you an idea of where
i might be in regards to learning these new languages.

There are tons of free resources if you'd like to learn on your own. Just
get a copy of Visual Web Developer Express and start watching the videos and
webcasts:
