Yo people! Books are a great piece of bibliography when you need to start a new programming language or want to look some reference. Unfortunately, I have found that techniques (design patterns, obsolete code) and the way certain code is implemented, can change over time, and can make a book "incomplete" in those terms. 

 

I'm looking for a site or sites which a la alistapart which I can read from time to time to learn about the new trends, programming paradigms, what is the new way to do things, etc. for both PHP and ASP. 

 

Thanks a million :D

ASP .NET MVC

 

Edit: Sorry. Never thought there was a difference. Will start beginning to learn ASP .NET MVC in the following weeks, and I didn't know it was such a big difference!

Thanks a lot. Indeed, Apress, wrox, and others actually do good stuff. The thing I'd like to know is how do I keep updated with constant changes. 

 

I found this gem yesterday on YouTube

 

 

I feel that I'm writing too much garbage, and I need to fix that!  It won't be easy, and it will take me a couple of years to do so, but I'm willing to learn.

Follow codeplex projects.

 

Also, newsletter wise, code project isn't bad.

 

Follow the bloggers too.

There's a big difference between Web Form and ASP.NET MVC. I'll not say what i think of Web Form ...


Follow the blogs of core people in the development community ;)

 

This. Could not agree more.

Ahhh yes a fellow ASP.NET MVC developer!  It is the jesus of web programming unlike that PHP ######.

 

You'll get the enjoyment of bundles, routing, and many other benefits.  Also Code First Entity Framework is awesome too!

Already looked that up, and oh boy! It's a paradigm shift. Will be reading more from it, since that'll be doctrine I'll be adopting from now on.

Crap. That's the thing I'm fearing. I have started learning C# from a Wrox 2008 book. Seems that it uses the old ArrayLIst (didn't know it was deprecated in favor of List) :/
