ASP.NET

1) What is it, exactly? It's a language? It's not a language? It's a 'framework'? What does that mean? I guess: How does one do things with it?
2) Is it useful? (as in: would it have a positive effect on my career options)

A load of blurb copied from another site and a link to msdn's guide on asp.net's security guide. Interesting post. :)

One of the best things about ASP.NET is the ability to easily separate code into different modules, unravelling presentation code from application logic.

This allows developers with different skills sets to work on their area of speciality simultaneously (e.g. web designers working on HTML code while programmers work on ASP.NET code). Because of its object-orientated nature, ASP.NET also promotes code reuse.

In ASP.NET, there are several features that can be used to make the code reusable and independent of other code. These features are: user controls, server controls, HTML controls, custom controls, components, and the code behind method.

Here's a valuable ASP.NET resource:

*shrug* In .NET language choice is mainly a matter of syntax preference.

We will be expected to write stuff but as far as I'm aware we will have pretty much free choice over which language. I think it's assumed we'll be able to pick up what we need quite quickly.
I don't know, the first lecture was less than clear. It's just my module choice became complicated a few days ago and I was trying to decide between this one and something else, though it looks like I'll go with this one, thanks Gain.

Oh and VB is an experience I had at sixth form, which I do not wish to repeat :P

Well ASP.NET works with any .NET implemented language so entirely possible you'd ignore C# all together. If they've just interested in the concepts that using ASP.NET promotes then I'd bet any examples/coding would be done in VB.NET as its the easiest to pick up. Depends on the goals of the module really.

Its not radically different to any other language. Its a cross between C++ and Java.

Is C# a good language to go with then? As I understand it they teaching emphasis won't be on teaching the language. I'm familiar with C, Java and a few others - think it'd be easy to pick up?

Sure, .NET/C# are among the top wanted skills now.
