ASP has at least two definitions in computer circles. It stands for Application Service Provider and Active Server Page. However, to cover more bases, it also stands for Adjunct Service Point, Administrable Service Provider, and Attached Support Processor, along with probably a half dozen other acronym definitions.

There is likely no real training for an Application Service Provider, outside of trial and error, customer feedback, and discussing challenges with industry consultants, so as not to leave customers stranded. We'll stick with the second definition here then. An Active Server Page is a dynamically created web page that uses an .asp extension, that is, ActiveX scripting. When an internet browser sends a request for an .asp web page, the web server generates a page with HTML code to send back in reply. This is similar to the way CGI scripts work, CGI meaning Common Gateway Interface.

ASPs look the same as .html or .htm pages, for example. The difference is that scripts have been run on them before the files are sent back to the requesting browser. Upon being received, they're displayed as text, graphics, and maybe sounds, depending on the content of each page. The server side-scripts in the source code may display a short survey that people have been asked to fill out, or the date and time, or subscription information, ability to contact you via e-mail, and so forth,

ASP Training Classes

Training classes for ASP can be absorbed at your own pace through web-based training or taken in a structured single pace environment in cities throughout the U.S.A. and Canada. An introductory class in ASP for brand new web designers may well take three days. An advanced class may be two days, an XML class four days, and migrating from ASP to ASP .NET will last five days.
