ASP + ASP.NET + Dreamweaver

I too was very dissapointed to learn of Webassists decission to drop support for Classic ASP, in favour of PHP. As a designer, rather than a coder, these extensions have been a god send with creating database functionality in websites I produce.

But now it's time to move on, and it's a big decision. PHP is still a very 'techy' language, unlike Visual Basic, which can be read quite easily to get a general grasp of what is going on.

So who is staying with Dreamweaver and is going to learn PHP, MySQL etc. and who is sticking with Visual Basic and moving up to ASP.NET and dedicated platforms for this language, such as Visual Web Developer (Free), Expression Web or Visual Studio.

PHP has gained such popularity because the whole platform is free, something that Microsoft has realised and are trying to address. The whole .NET platform is now available as a free development platform in one form or another.

So sleepless nights with my head in the books await.

...Just which books?
