just getting started..

hello, my name is nick, i am 14, and i am moving from doing static html sites to doing asp.net sites. i am looking for some good video tutorials on microsoft web developer 2008, i am posting here because most of the ones i find on google are about developer 2005. the topics i am most interested in are a good overview of the tools and some of the functions, and a good database overview, not really particular to anything, seeing as i have used sql databases only a little,  but anything would help and would be much appreciated. also a question, can you create a connection to a database even if the database is not up yet,  but edit it to connect later? i have to update mine, something bugged. ugh. lol, but anyways, any help would be appreciated, thanks Big Smile

In my opinion, it's fine to start from 2005. After you are familar with VS 2005, you can start to get more feature in VS2008. Anyway, everything in VS2005 is useful when you go to VS2008.

So let's do a schedule for learning ASP.NET as below and you can take them one step by one step. 

1. You can kown about the general ASP.NET at: http://www.asp.net/learn/videos/#beginners In this link, you can know about the basic about ASP.NET. When you watch the videos, you can take the quickstarts as the above post: http://quickstarts.asp.net/QuickStartv20/default.aspx

2. To learn more about data-access in ASP.NET: http://www.asp.net/learn/data-access/ This is important part of ASP.NET.

3. After the aboves, you will be a superior. It's the time to know about AJAX in ASP.NET http://www.asp.net/learn/ajax-videos/

4. Now, you can try a starter-kit to learn how to develop a completed web site. http://www.asp.net/downloads/starter-kits/

5. Get feature about 2008, such as LinQ, PageDataSource and so on.

You can get more information at http://www.asp.net/learn/

Hope it helps.

Hello, I'm just getting started with openSUSE. I'm about as green as they come. My wife's hard drive died and rather than shell out $200 for another copy of windows, I'm wanting to migrate to Linux.

Hello - I downloaded VDW and installed it with no problems at all.  Overall, WVD looks promising and seems like it provides a lot of power.

I tried to set it in the properties window, and when that didn't work I cleared it and tried to set it through Format -> Style. Still no go. Any ideas? Thanks Hoiw exactly table element look like?
