I am an old guy. In 2013 I created a 2 websites on 2 separate servers, hosted by a provider, one for eCommerce(running on IIS) and the other to run the company's programs, which are written in VB. There was a third server, to handle the MSSqlServer databases, reachable only by the other 2 servers.

The eCommerce app was developed with ASP.net on a Windows XP box. (Please don't laugh or make fun, it was 7 years ago.) Sigh | :sigh:

Th boss never pulled the trigger to start using it. Frown | :( Sigh | :sigh: Frown | :( Sigh | :sigh: Sigh | :sigh:

Now he wants it up and running. The data Servers are VM machines. the data server is MS Server 2016, and the eCommerce server and the application server are MS Server 2008 R2.

The languages and technologies have changed so much I do not know where to begin. Can you recommend a simple book for a Newbie( Which I am for all practical purposes ) on creating and maintaining websites?

I am limited to a Visual Studio 2015 community edition if that makes any difference.

Also, a book that explains VM's and how to manage them would be great.

Your help would be sincerely appreciated.
It's hell getting old.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
