I had this blog post on my posts-to-write list for a long time, but Rion Williams was faster. Instead of writing nearly the same I want to highlight and recommend his article. It will help to get you started with ASP.NET and .NET in general. Rion covers helpful links for learning the languages, books you should read, and resources and tutorials.
The year has just started and there are already new things you can investigate. Today I’m presenting some articles from January which I think are worth reading. This month they are mostly focused on ASP.NET Identity, an authentication framework, which helps to build secure applications more easily.
