Your First ASP.NET Application

The best way to get started with ASP.NET is to jump right in. In this chapter, we will show you how to get set up for ASP.NET development and build your first ASP.NET application. The application we will build is simple, but it allows us to show you how to prepare your workstation for ASP.NET development, how the ASP.NET development tools work and—most importantly—how quickly you can get up and running with ASP.NET. We’ll provide some context and background about the ASP.NET Framework in the next chapter, but this book focuses on coding so that’s what we are going to start with.
