Migrating from PHP to ASP.NET
A migration from PHP to ASP.NET in most cases is not very complex for simple to small applications. Due to underlying architectural differences as well as ASP.NET's OOP paradigm, more sophisticated and complex applications need to be planned and well thought out to take advantage of ASP.NET's more rigorous separation of display from logic and data, as well as time saving built in functionality that significantly reduces the amount of code necessary to do comparable tasks. This paper discusses the migration of PHP (PHP:Hypertext Preprocessor 4) to ASP.NET. It compares and contrasts the basic underlying syntax of PHP with Microsoft Visual Basic .NET, as well as the underlying functionality and architecture of the two systems.
