The topics cover information that pertains to the project as a whole, such as the file structure of the project, the life cycle of an application, how to create a consistent look (themes) and a consistent layout (master pages) for all of the pages in the project, and how to use custom modules in the project.

Web controls run on the server and include form controls such as buttons and text boxes, as well as special purpose controls, such as a DropDownList control. These classes enable you to programmatically manage these elements on a Web page.
