How to get started building websites RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have been using VB to develop programs and I now need to create a website.

    Created a web site years ago with asp.net.

    But now I see there are many more choices, what to do?

  • Hello,

    What technology to use will depend on what you are looking to do, how quickly you can get up to speed with a technology new to you.

    Things have changed a lot in six years.

    You could look at blazer which is on the bleeding edge.

    Another option is web api which can be done purely in ASP.NET or done in a hybrid manner (which we have done)

    Of course there is always ASP.NET to look at which has changed a lot in recent years.

    Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help and unmark them if they provide no help, this will help others who are looking for solutions to the same or similar problem. Contact via my Twitter (Karen Payne) or Facebook (Karen Payne) via my MSDN profile but will not answer coding question on either.

  • It is worthwhile doing the straightforward HTML, CSS, and PHP tutorials in this website : -


    They are free tutorials and a lot of fun to do.

    Learn straightforward pure html first before you get mucked around with ASP :) :) :) . I was the same - - started with ASP many years ago, but more recently reverted to widespread browser friendly html - -

    PS I found web hosting that is ASP compatible was more expensive and exclusive - - may have changed nowadays.

    Burn all valuable data to CD/DVD disks. EMP proof.
