Welcome to the ASP Forum. I love Classic ASP. My whole web site is built with that, Javascript, and of course HTML from scratch. Post your questions here. Feel free to ask about ASP.NET too. I'm not an expert (yet) but I can make my way around it, and yes, I'm brushing up my skills to I can prepare some ASP.NET lessons soon.

This forum is for everyone to read but only students (paid customers) can post here. If you'd like to become a student, you can watch ASP Beginner Level 1 for free, and then purchase Level 2 for just $1.00 here. After you create a logon, you will have full access to the Forums.

Hello Rick,
I am now coming to terms that i have to let go of classic ASP. Which alternatives do i have? I would be good that you recommend something where the learning curve from Classic ASP will be easy. Thanx

Hi Micah,

Classic ASP was replaced with ASP.NET.
So you have a couple of options, one is to learn VB.NET and the other is C#.

The other thing to think about is how do you want to build it?
Originally there was WebForms but I wouldnt use that.
MVC (Model View Controller) is an option.
You can then split your projects out into FE (Front End) and BE (Back End), make a separate API that you can call to get data etc.

SPA (Single Page Application) this could be done in Angular or Vue etc.
Blazor is new (Web Assembly)

Sorry for a lot of options but it might be worth doing a little reading.

Alex said it best. Personally I recommend ASP.NET which is backward compatible with Classic ASP 3.0. So everything you've learned so far is still valid, PLUS it's got a lot of added features. You can still use VB in ASP.NET.

Thank you Alex and Rick for pointing me in the right direction
