Default Migrating to asp.net


After watching this video from MS, I really feel like I am missing the boat on asp.net.

I feel like its so "drag and drop" (with web dev 2005) that I dont need to understand *all* of whats going on with the code like I have to with asp. In one respect thats good. If I can mostly drag and drop and entire project it should make things quick and dirty.

But I kinda feel like I should have to know whats going on in the background. I am concerned that I could get to a point where a have a project, but have no idea how it works or how to troubleshoot it. Has anyone found this to be the case?

If anyone could give me some of their personal experiences with migrating to asp.net, I would appreciate it.

Not everything is quite as Drag and Drop as they show in their videos. While it's true that it's getting extremely automated, there are still many things that aren't quite customizable using just the default settings. Many vanilla sites will work, but any sites used by businesses with a lot of requirements will still require that you know what's going on in order to take full advantage of the .NET Framework.

One way to get more familiar with the ASP.NET works, is to build your own reusable User Controls and Server Controls. The later will require that you know how the Page Life Cycle works so that you know when ViewState variables, etc... are available.

Basically the easiest way to learn .NET is to forget everything that you know about Classic ASP. Especially if you're skipping directly to .NET 2.0. Learn the objects and you'll be alright. The only way you'll have a problem trouble shooting is if you don't take the time to understand what you're doing. If you find an example on the web, don't just plug it in, play with it as well to see what the different options do.
