In this ASP training course, students will learn to build full-featured, database-driven Web sites. This introductory course for new programmers lays out the basics of server-side Web programming with an introduction to classic programming structures and good programming practices. Students will apply these programming skills to the development of a fully functional data-driven website with ASP written in VBScript. Students will harness the power of ASP to remember users with cookies and sessions, collect and process information users enter into an online form, and provide rich integration with databases to track clients, orders, and products using ASP and the enhanced functionality of ASP components.

Students will also learn to use sophisticated programming strategies and advanced features to add polish, speed and efficiency to Active Server Pages Web applications. In this ASP training course, students will work more thoroughly with ASP components for Web-to-database integration and use the server's file system to add features and functionality to a website. In addition, students will learn to work with other built-in and third-party components.
