If you're a PHP developer and have ever wanted to know a bit more about the world of ASP.NET, you're in luck. In this new post to the NETTUTS.com site, Chris Taylor walks you through some of the basics and how the language compares to PHP.
This tutorial, for PHP developers, will provide you with an introduction to ASP.NET using the C# language. If you've wondered what ASP.NET is about, this tutorial will strive to answer at least some of your questions. Even if you're an ardent open-source fan, ASP.NET contains some techniques and features that are useful to know about. And, as some might say, it's good to know your enemy!
After a brief introduction to what the language is, he gets right into building a sample application, a basic form created by the ASP.NET wizard. He looks at using debug mode, viewing the structure of the application (in the IDE) and the code behind some of the files. He also covers server-side controls, configuration files, what PHP calls superglobals, and includes a cheat sheet to cover some of the things he's covered so far.
