ASP.Net using servers {1}

by Michael M
Microsoft Active Server Pages also known as ASP was first released in 1996 and has provided web developers with a rich and complex framework for building web applications. But since 1996 ASP has evolved greatly and has improved a lot. ASP is still known but they have now renamed it ASP.NET. It is a framework for building web applications that run over the web and client- servers are represented by a browser forwarding request. Communications over the web occur through HTTP which relies on TCP and IP to transmit data between the two nodes. ASP.Net is connected with Microsoft’s Internet Information Server also known as IIS. The Asp. Net worker process performs many task with the isapi extension and they are the main things that happen under the ASP.Net request.
This week we talked about ASP.Net in class as well as we learned some basic code that can be used for our project three. The thing that I learned in class this week is that you no longer need to use javascript in the web page the ASP.Net will take over and use its own language to process some of the users request. The thing that I took from reading this article was some of the history of ASP. ASP has evolved a lot and is kind of like a server. It connects to browsers and sends request.
I have not really dealt much with ASP. I am really interested in learning how to use it because in class this week we went over basics but the thing about Visual Basics is it is so much different and I am not used to it yet. Once I get used to using the program it will be a lot better because I will be able to do projects a lot easier. I have talked to people that understand the use of ASP and they all say it is easy once you know what to do that is why I wanted to find more information about ASP.Net.

Visual Basic simpler and better than C# {Comments Off on Visual Basic simpler and better than C#}

by Gerardgon Z
Visual Basic was designed to be relatively easy to learn and use. Programmers know the annoyances and limits of programming and Visual Basic stepped in to create a better and simpler way to code. The article talks about 10 different ways Visual Basic is better than C#. It talks about the case sensitive code that C# uses that makes it very and prone to mistakes and typos in the code. Visual Basic allows for a simpler select clause than C# in that you do not need to add ‘break’ to each and every single case. The symbols used in VB are equivalent to the English language ands, ors, and nots instead of using symbols.VB is also more forgiving in the way it handles code and strictness. You don’t have to go through messy variable conversions because VB is a smarter language that understands what the coder is trying to do. The article lists a total of ten reasons of why VB is better than C# and voices his opinion of each of these topics. read more...

Visual Basics {Comments Off on Visual Basics}

by Michael M
The article I read today was actually really interesting it basically went over visual basics and how it actually got started. Visual basics was created by Microsoft by John Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz. It was a program that was a great design and one that really tied Microsoft up into the computers. It was a program that  was created to make writing programs easier for users. It was one of the most widely used softwares at one point. Microsoft has been moving to a more powerful software that was redesigned and created in 2005 it is the .net. It may be one of Microsofts mistakes because they are forcing users that are so prone to using their old software to change and learn the .net program because they are no longer going to support the old one. Users are beginning to either switch over to the .net while other users are switching to different companies because if they have to adapt to change they might as well learn something new. The cool thing about visual basic is it allows users to build what they want and draw which the part of why it is called visual. Some people say that visual basic helps people that cannot program but that is not true because if you can program this tool can help make your programs that much better because it can help you out while you program. Visual basics is object oriented and also allows for inheritance with the .net version. Prior versions did not support that. read more...

Visual Basic and C# working together {Comments Off on Visual Basic and C# working together}

by Daniel M
The article that i read was about how visual basic and C#, which are both Microsoft languages, had been competing i the past. One of them would release something new and the other would have to play catch up to make themselves look good. Now both of the teams have to report through the same organizational structure. The idea behind this is to create a tighter cooperation between the two teams to make the capabilities of each language better and also to create consistency between the two languages. The idea is to make the languages more declarative. Declarative languages, according to the article basically are more abstract than the classic programming styles. It allows the compiler to not have to compile operations in a specific manner. The next thing they are trying to do is make both n\languages more dynamic. It would make the languages more like Python, Ruby or JavaScript. Microsoft has generally been more about static languages and they want to change that. The use of static and dynamic code will make for a better program. The las thing that Microsoft is trying to do is make the programming concurrent. Concurrent programming basically executes multiple steps at the same time. Computers are running more cores in their processors and they are also running virtual cores which allows for more processing power which in turn allows for more of the code to be run at the same time. This will allow the applications to run much faster. the article does talk about how writing parallel code is very hard and time consuming. read more...
