Great New ASP.NET 2.0 Data Tutorials Published

Over the last year Scott Mitchell has written 75 awesome data access tutorials covering ASP.NET 2.0 and VS 2005.  You can read all of them for free on the www.asp.net site (VB and C# versions are provided for each tutorial).

Earlier this week we published the last 9 articles in the series:

Scott Mitchell has more details on them on this blog post (make sure to thank him for writing all of these!).

Hope this helps,

Scott

P.S. All of the tutorials are available in both HTML as well as in a PDF format that you can download and print/take offline.

Scott;

>>make sure to thank him for writing all of these!

It's funny you posted this now. I had just contacted Scott (M) and thanking him about his great work. I also asked him if he has any plans to do the same with LINQ and he said, he hasn't had much time lately to look at LINQ. Hopefully we can see great stuff from him.

I hope someone else is working on a tutorial like Scott's about LINQ for ASP.Net. Maybe by the time I finish my project, I'll be qualified to write a few ;-)

It would be great to have some samples like this using LINQ also.

Darn, I wish they were screencasts.

Saves about 10 times the time to learn.

Critical comment, hope you won't mind:

The last tutorials are just in time, because typed datasets are about to be obsolete with LINQ to SQL coming out at the end of this year.

I hope we will see another series just like this, but based on LINQ. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with all the new stuff from Microsoft, and you feel like you're always behind the times.

Scott has really done a great job on these articles.  I hope he continues to write tutorials for you guys becuase he has a true talent for technical writing.  Keep up the great work, Scott!  (I wanted to thank him on his blog but comments were disabled).

At last year's DevConnections in Orlando, Scott was there to give some presentations, and there must have been like 20 people waiting around afterward just like me waiting to personally thank him for his books and his site..... I know that I wanted to tell him that his book "ASP in 21 Days" really jumpstarted my career...

Hi Scott,

I am still looking for data tutorial which will show how to make best use of SQL Server 2005 caching. The one where ASP.NET and SQL server talks to each other and take care of automatic invalidation.

Cachedependency="CommandNotification"

Still this great feature is not greatly explained anywhere.

Thank you

Hi Vikram,

>>>>>>> It would be great to have some samples like this using LINQ also.

We'll also be planning on doing an equivalent series for LINQ as well.

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Mike,

>>>>>> The last tutorials are just in time, because typed datasets are about to be obsolete with LINQ to SQL coming out at the end of this year.  I hope we will see another series just like this, but based on LINQ. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with all the new stuff from Microsoft, and you feel like you're always behind the times.

We will be planning another series like this that uses LINQ to SQL.  Two things I did want to mention:

1) Typed DataSets are definitely not going away.  We'll be supporting them for at least 10+ years into the future (and probably longer) - so using them is definitely very much an option going forward.  

2) The articles in Scott Mitchell's series above typically all use an ObjectDataSource, which then talks to the DAL.  You can use this exact same approach with LINQ to SQL - which should mean a very good skills transfer if you do decide to use LINQ to SQL.

Hope this helps,

Scott

Well, that's good to hear. Will Typed DataSets have new features in Orcas or in the future?
