ASP.NET is a web programming platform developed by Microsoft. It is the successor to Active Server Pages. The term "classic ASP" is often used to distinguish previous versions of Active Server Pages with the .NET (pronounced "dot net") versions.

This Study Guide is an introduction to ASP.NET. It assumes no prior experience with web programming or with any particular web programming language or platform (including classic ASP), though we will often compare ways of doing things in ASP.NET with ways of doing them in other languages, especially PHP. We believe the differences between classic ASP and ASP.NET are substantial enough to merit separate treatment.
