Great ASP.NET 2.0 Tutorial Videos Online

Last week we published a series of great ASP.NET 2.0 “How do I?” videos on MSDN.  These videos are code-focused videos (no slides or marketing at all – pure code) that walkthrough using some of the new features in ASP.NET 2.0 and Visual Web Developer (which is free).

 

The “How do I?” videos are each about 10-15 minutes long, and are a great way to quickly come up to speed with some of the new features.  I highly recommend setting some time aside to watch them.  Here is the current listing of them:

 

Data Access – Create a new database from scratch, define a table, populate it with data, create a strongly typed DAL TableAdapter to work against it, and then build a filtered master/detail set of ASP.NET pages with data sorting, paging and editing support against it.

 

Master Pages and Site Navigation – Create a consistent master page layout for a site using the new ASP.NET Master Pages Feature.  Then create a site navigation menu using site navigation and the new TreeView control.

 

Membership and Roles – Add an authentication and authorization system to a site from scratch, and implement login, create user, change password, password reset, and role based security in a secure way.

 

Profiles and Themes – Enable per-user profile personalization on a site.  Then use this together with the new Themes/Skins feature to allow a visiting user to customize and personalize the look and feel of a site. 

 

Web Parts and Personalization – Enable customizable drag/drop portal UI within web-pages, and allow visiting users to customize the information experience they see.

 

Output Caching and SQL Cache Invalidation – Learn how to use the output caching feature in ASP.NET, as well as the new SQL Cache Invalidation support to build super efficient output cached pages that stay in sync with the data within your database.

 

Partial Page Caching – Learn how to use the Partial Page output caching with ASP.NET to enable regions of a page to be cached, while also allowing other portions of the page to stay dynamic.

 

Localization – Learn how to build culture-aware and locale specific applications using ASP.NET 2.0.

 

Wizard and Validation Controls – Build a canonical form data registration page using the new ASP.NET 2.0 Wizard control and validation control features.

 

Tips and Tricks – This video highlights a number of cool new features in ASP.NET 2.0, including: cross-page postback support, file uploading, the MultiView control, encrypting web.config settings, and more.

 

AJAX Update:

 

Atlas -- This video shows building a todo Task List using Atlas, the new ASP.NET AJAX framework.

 

Interview with me on Sys-Con

 

Sys-con magazine also last week published an online video interview with me on their web-site that you can watch here.  In it, I talk a little about the history of ASP.NET as well as our approach and plans with Atlas.  I also reference a new web-site here that you can visit to register for additional free web-casts on ASP.NET 2.0.  If you live in the US or Canada and watch three of the web-casts, you can register to receive a free copy of Visual Studio Standard edition.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Scott

Scott,

I agree, these videos are great! I expecially enjoyed the "Tips and Tricks" video. One question: is the code from the encrypt configuration settings part of this available?

Thanks Scott for the links.

Question: Any tips on deployment? Esp deployment with databases. {connection strings etc etc}

Most of the videos i've seen is just " Hit Copy Website and Upload" however it doesnt seem to work that way.

_great_ videos, I put them on TOP of my xx-GiagaBytes dev videos colletion, the picture is really sharp to the small size of them (compared to webcasts). The guy presenting them (named Scott) is really skilled with VWD tool, I learned a few handy tricks I really didn't know about. Like dragging a stylesheet to code window of a page will put <link rel="... line or double-clicking properties will expand them (doh! :)

What was I dissapointed a bit was for example Master Pages video, where the presenter is doing hard TABLE LAYOUT combo magic, and not only for positioning elements, but also for styles. It is nice he presents visual goodies of VWD to style elements, but in the end they are hardcoded to .master or .aspx page and it isn't a great win.
I would like to see your approach ScottGu you've taken a while ago with CSS and divs.
E.g. watching a 'wizard' chapter where we could see what this control generates in the end (HTML) and how can we change the style of it in .skin or .css files and use VWD as a help (VS with CSS plugin is a better win).

Is there anyone at Microsoft doing the same kinds of video tutorials you are doing for ASP.Net but for Winforms?

Excellent work on producing these videos. I am asking our development team to go through these. One quick question: What screen-recording tool are you using for producing these tutorials?

Thanks!

Alex

# re: Great ASP.NET 2.0 Tutorial Videos Online

Hi Alex,

I believe we are using Camtasia to build these videos.

Thanks,

Scott

Thanks for all the great compliments on the videos!

I forwarded them to the team here at Vertigo Software that developed these videos for Microsoft -- Scott Stanfield, Tom Phan, and Jack Gao.

We spent an unbelievable amount of time trying to get these "just right." And if you've ever worked with our CEO, Scott Stanfield, you know he's a perfectionist and quite the video enthusiast. :)

Alex, the videos were created using a combination of Camtasia and Sony Vegas 6.

Thanks for these useful videos. Before I saw these videos, I had lots of confusion about some topics which are covered in videos. So now I came to very femilier with those topics. Anyhow, Visual representaions are very effective than normal study materials in text form or slides forms.

Keep up the good work and hope to see more of these in the future

Hi Scott!

I don't know how I hit on your site. I searched in Google and somehow I landed here. Lucky me.
I was looking everywhere for some intro tutorials on .NET. Basically I am a java web developer using struts. Recently I was asked to work on one of the .NET projects. Well guess what I am clueless.
So I started searching for some intros and I came to your site. Your video tutorials are too good. I learnt a lot in one hour which I cannot learn even if I go to a class. How beautiful are these turotials - quality yes the quality is too good. We need more of this stuff man. Now I see how really the Web is useful for educating yourself when there is quality stuff.
Thanks a lot for these wonderful QUALITY tutorials.

# Great way to learn basics fast

Friday, March 10, 2006 5:12 AM by Esben
Hi Scott
I've seen all the videos and i hope more is on the way. Especially the one with masterpages and CSS styling. I have a question about the video with users and userrole management. I like all the embedded functionality in the new controls BUT i think the videos id based too much on the embedded sqlserver express.

In the site management i cant switch sqlprovider, unless i have specifyed it manually in the website.config. And that makes it very difficult to use the user/login-controls with e.a. a existing database or if i want to use a database in another SQL server.
In generally the user/login-controls are very difficult to use if you dont want to use embedded sql server express. I'm missing mor info about how the controls work. Likewise it would be nice with some stuff about setting up the user-control to work width LDAP-servers, Active directory, windowslogon.

I'll add my thanks to the multitudes! Excellent work - tell your manager I've approved promotions all round. :)

One thing that seems to be missing is tutorials / examples that show best practice. So many times I've read or heard "this is not best practice, but..." and at that point the value of the tutorial is lessened.

What I'd love to see is a few videos covering best practice on: Security (encryption and deployment issues across dev, test and prod environments), SQL Server for Membership and Roles, etc. What I'm getting at is that as soon as I need to think about developing for an enterprise application, the techniques used in existing examples are no longer suitable.

Hello Scott,

I have recently started looking into ASP 2.0 from scratch. I have done a lot of programming before but never thought that Web development was of any use. It just seemed to be a very tedious way of achieving next to nothing.
I have looked in to almost all your videos on this page and I must say they are absolutely fantastic and for me they were (and still are, as reference) an invaluable tool for my ASP 2.0 knowledge!

Thank you very much,

Hi,

I love the videos and they are totally awesome. But I'm still having problems getting my page to be out on the Internet, especially those that deals with database. They work fine under localhost, but I get errors when I try to view the page from the Internet or Intranet. Wonder if there will be a more in depth guide to getting the configurations of IIS 6, ASP.NET 2.0 and SQL Server 2000/2005 to work? I'm totally bugged by getting them to work. Any magic touch that I need to master? Cheers!

I have a question regarding your video on "Localization". When you override the InitializeCulture(), how would you get the value for "Language1" in C#? Thanks.

Hi Lau,

Here is a blog post I did that walksthrough how to configure ASP.NET to use SQL 2000 or SQL 2005 to store the application services content: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/08/25/423703.aspx

Hope this helps,

Hi scott, fantastic videos, just wondered whether you have any details on how you can use detials view to add data to a table in gridview; were one of the fields in the gridview is already populated with details from a different table. is this possible?

Hi Shaka,

Have you had a chance yet to check out the data access tutorials here: http://www.asp.net/learn/dataaccess/default.aspx?tabid=63

They take the data sample in the videos much further and show how to implement the most common data access patterns.

Hope this helps,

# How to write CSS for pages that are linked to a Master Page

Sunday, December 31, 2006 12:27 AM by Sergei

I have a Master page which is linked to few content pages. The master page contains the masthead, Navigation bar and footer. In the content pages i have created 3 paragraphs and what i want to do is position these paragraphs in to 3 columns using CSS. Now where should i write CSS to style the content in the content placeholder?

# re: Great ASP.NET 2.0 Tutorial Videos Online

Sunday, December 31, 2006 11:15 AM by ScottGu

Hi Sergei,

What I'd recommend doing is storing the CSS rules in a separate .css stylesheet file, and then link to this stylesheet from within the <head> section of your Master Page.  Then all content pages will pick up the styles.

You can then use CSS class rules to optionally apply the rules to only select elements within your content page.

Hope this helps,

Scott

Hi Sergei,

I'd recommend checking out this past blog post of mine: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2006/07/22/Recipe_3A00_-Dynamic-Site-Layout-and-Style-Personalization-with-ASP.NET--.aspx

It discusses how to allow a user to dynamically customize both their master page and their theme preference.

Note that you don't have to have a .CSS file be under the app_theme directory.  Instead, you can have a .master file link to it directly - in which case you can share it across themes.

Hope this helps,

Scott

Thanks scott, I followed your instructions and wrote CSS rules in an external stylesheet file and linked it using the cssClass attribute and it is working now.
