"to asp.net or vb.net", that is the question

P: n/a
This is a very basic question. As someone looking to
develop web sites, I am not sure whether I should be
using asp.net or vb.net. Under what circumstances would
one be favored over the other?

Can someone clears this up for me?

Thanks.

Dekesc,
I would use both! As both are needed.

I would use ASP.NET as that is the technology used for .NET web sites. It
defines your web pages (.aspx) & your web services (.asmx).

Then I would use VB.NET as the underlying programming language for my code.

As ASP.NET needs an underlying language for any server side code. This
language can be VB.NET, C#, or any of the other languages available for
..NET. This underlying language can be intermixed with your web page (.aspx)
or it can be 'code behind' in a standalone file. (.aspx.vb). I prefer the
code behind as its separates your logic from your presentation.

I think your questions need to be:
Do I use VB.NET with ASP.NET or do I use C# with ASP.NET?
Do I use Visual Studio.NET, Web Matrix, or Notepad?

I would favor VS.NET & Web Matrix over Notepad. Then its largely personal
choice on VB.NET or C# or other language.

Hope this helps
Jay

Deksc,
Since VS.NET is so expensive, I probably would opt for
Matrix, ASP.NET and VB.

Any other tools you could suggest for a startup web
developer company (i.e., with limited funds)? I do not do a lot of web development.

Downloading and installing Web Matrix should get you every thing you need to
design & build the web pages themselves. However I am sure you will need a
good graphics editor. Don't have any that I can recommend.

If you don't already have the link to Web Matrix:

Hope this helps

Great information! Thanks for stating the issue so

clearly.
