We have gone through a bunch of the building blocks that make ASP.NET applications possible, and up to this point you have been given a good foundation. Starting with the next chapter, you can really dig deeper into the meat of ASP.NET. You’ll start off by learning about different controls, then progress through to the cool form validators, data access, state management, and security, and finally even touch on XML.
By the time you’re through with this book, I’ll have to worry whether I’ll get to do a follow-up title to this book or New Riders will be calling you to write it. (P.S. Writing a book is a lot harder than you’d think, especially for a lughead like me.)
