Dear friend,

This is a great opportunity for you to become a better programmer and successful with ASP.NET and C#.  This is your unique chance to learn from somebody who has the experience and knowledge that can help you improve your skills.

So why should you listen to me?
Click here to read what my students said about me.

Can you tell us more about this product?
Shoppingcart_csharpuniversity is a fully functional example ASP.NET database driven web application written in C#.  Full source code and a back-end database are both included.  Don’t waste time with the “hello world” examples you will find in most books, take it from me, they won’t get you up to speed with .NET.  This is similar to a C# (CSharp) ASP.NET eBook, but much better.  This download was designed to make you a much better programmer and learn ASP.NET with C# fast and easy!

Over the years, my experience as an instructor has been that the majority of students or job team members that I either taught in the classroom or mentored at work, LEARN BY EXAMPLE!  Programming students are very eager to get beyond the book knowledge and see how it is done in the real world.  If you are learning or using ASP.NET and C#, this example application can help you improve your .NET skills.

  • Learn C# and ASP.NET programming techniques by reviewing the example code and descriptive comments of an expert.  Learn about some of the cutting edge controls in ASP.NET 3.5 like the SqlDataSource, ObjectDataSource and GridView controls.  Plus learn how Master Pages and User Controls can really improve your web app development experience.
  • You can run the example application and experiment with it by changing or adding new code to the project for practice.
  • Most, and probably all of the techniques should work with other databases such as Oracle and MySQL as well.

This example web application was designed to be an online shopping cart for a virtual toy store.  I utilized some of the most powerful server controls and features of the ASP.NET 3.5 web framework to demonstrate how you can maximize productivity, facilitate re-use and make programming with C# in .NET fun.  Here are some screen shots of the example shopping cart actually running (click to enlarge).

There are a number of .NET programming techniques that I have demonstrated in Shoppingcart_csharpuniversity.  The following is a quick list of just some of the techniques:

  • Reusability, layout and server controls
  • Validation
  • Data binding
  • Database tasks
  • Object-oriented
  • Lists
  • Sessions
  • Configuration
  • Events
  • and many more

This product also comes with the following free BONUSES:

  • Comments in the source code that provide documentation.
  • Application design overview where I walk you through how I designed the application and chose various ASP.NET and C# features.
  • Database schema diagram that shows all of the relationships between the database tables.

Here is what you need to use this product:

  • Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition or Visual Studio 2008
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Edition (optional).  The full version of SQL Server will work fine as well.  Most, and probably all of the techniques should work with other databases such as Oracle and MySQL as well.

So Ted, how much is all of this cool stuff going to cost me?
This product only costs $19.99 (USD) and is available for purchase by using the secure BUY NOW button below.  That is simply a steal and you should take advantage of this awesome opportunity right away!  Please note that by purchasing this product, you are accepting the terms of the license agreement (click here to read).

  1. This is the only way to learn programming. You can spend how much you want and play with a real application and real source code. You will learn how a programmer thinks. It depends how much smart you are.
    I love it; I’m waiting for other product. Also price is understandable compare to what you earn.
