The new edition of the Wrox ASP.NET book is officially on the shelves today! Amazon received their shipment and it is now in stock for a CHEAP $34.64. My co-authors, Scott Hanselman and Devin Rader, revamped this book and added quite a number of new pages to deal with the new features from AJAX to IIS 7 to LINQ to this book. We really focused on helping the ASP.NET developer understand the tools, APIs, controls, and environments at their disposal for this release. ASP.NET is, in my humble opinion, one of the coolest, most exciting, quickest, and secure ways to present your applications. The technology keeps changing and adapting to the changing market place. We use this technology heavily at Reuters and at Lipper (www.lipperweb.com). Let me know what you think of the book. One of the nice things about this book and one of the big differences you will see in this book over others is that we cover everything in short and to the point examples in BOTH VB and in C#. We do not say that the book is in both and then point you to a separate download for the code in the language that didn't make the book (as most other books do).

The 2.0 book was packed with all the info I needed on any topic I looked up.

The wording was friendly and informal, but included subtle details and potential gotchas and concise examples of when and how some item would be used.

Seeing it's available now, the 3.5 version just went into my Amazon cart and will be here in 2 days. Thanks!

But why C# and VB together? Will it not confuse the developers who are focused on a issue to solve instead of looking at syntax equivalents? Thanks.

Thanks for the book. I'm enjoying it. The WROX site seems to have issues with the errata form so I thought I would leave a few here until they fix it.

p.40 Figure 1-11 is not what the text says it is
p.41 Figure 1-12 is not what the text says it is
p.1082 Both the VB and C# code examples are in C#

BTW - I like both languages side by side.
