Microsoft ASP Introduction

3 days

Course Overview

If you’re looking for a way to create attractive, intelligent web pages or, if you’re just
looking for a way to extend your HTML know–how, then ASP is an effective way to
achieve your goals. With ASP, you can customize your web pages to be more dynamic,
more efficient and more responsive to your users. It’s not just a technology, though —
to get the best out of ASP, you’ll be using it in tandem with HTML, and with one or more
of the web’s simple scripting languages. This ASP Introduction will teach
you everything you need to create useful real–world applications on the web.
This course starts with an explanation of ASP–Active Server Pages–and why they are a
Good Thing. It covers installing and testing IIS 5.0, and then you are ready to write your
first ASP example. Next you learn about client and server side scripting followed by
sessions on variables; control structures; objects, properties and events; cookies, the
all-important error handling and so on all the way up to creating a working ASP-based
database application. COM+, ADO and XML are covered en route, and the result is a
considered and well- constructed course in ASP for professionals.
If you’re already creating HTML pages and want to extend your skills to the corporate web then
you’ll want to attend this course.

Prerequisites
