Kudos to 4 Guys from Rolla

I've been reading more of their articles on ASP.NET and love what they write. It's easy to understand, gives good code examples, and deals with Real World problems.

Who else do you like?

Wow, surprised no one has responded to this. I think the Rolla guys are absolutely excellent. Their series long ago on the ASP.NET DataGrid was killer.

The M$ sites are actually quite good as well: GotDotNet (http://www.gotdotnet.com) and ASP.NET (http://www.asp.net). I used to visit The Code Project on a regular basis but they had way too much content for me to keep up with.

And I detest Experts Exchange http://www.experts-exchange.com/ because they require you to create an account to see look at their resources. Which I never have, of course.

Not really. If you scroll down past all the ads, you'll see the answer.

Having said that, I dislike Experts Exchange because the pages are so ad- and image-heavy.

I agree that GotDotNet and ASP.NET are helpful. But, for reading/learning something - these guys rock!

experts-exchange is quite helpful. You get free points to "bid" with.  And you accrue points over time. I signed up years ago, so I have 000's of points.


You're not going to get rocket science answers, but it's a good alternative if you can't google the answer.

+1 for GotDotNet, ExpertsExchange and ASP.Net.

All of them are very useful for information. I also like going to CodeProject, which not only has good information but also sample projects to play with.

One word of caution, though - some of the projects there contain very bad source code.

David - And then there is http://bugmenot.com for other similarly annoying "sign-in-or-else-nope-nada" situations!
