Book Review - jQuery Mobile Web Development Essentials

Tuesday, August 7, 2012 9:07 PM

jQuery Book Review

The imminent release of Visual Studio (2012) will include jQuery Mobile as part of the ASP.NET MVC 4 Mobile application template, and some enhancements to the framework to make developing for mobile devices much easier. So it was a well-timed invitation that I received from Packt Publishing to review their latest jQuery title: jQuery Mobile Web Development Essentials.

Book Review - CLR Via C# Third Edition

C# General Book Review

I've had a review copy of Jeffrey Richter's CLR via C#, Third Edition for some months, and it has taken until now to get round to publishing my thoughts on the book. It's not my fault. I blame the book. It made me forget why I was given a copy in the first place. Let me explain...

Book Review - Beginning ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB

Monday, April 19, 2010 10:24 PM

Book Review

People often post questions to the forums at www.asp.net asking what they need to learn to become an accomplished ASP.NET Web Developer. Answers vary, but tend to focus on learning the framework and a bit of SQL, along with finding your way around Visual Web Developer, or if you can afford it, Visual Studio. My answer tends to consist of the same list of items:

Book Review - Professional Enterprise .NET

Wednesday, October 28, 2009 3:49 PM

ASP.NET 3.5 ASP.NET MVC Book Review

I reviewed an ASP.NET Architecture and Design book recently. It was OK. I felt it was a bit thin, and didn't cover topics beyond beginner level. Then I got sent a review copy of another book: Professional Enterprise .NET. Having read it, this is the book that the previous book should want to be when it grows up.

Book Review - ASP.NET 3.5 Application Architecture and Design

Sunday, October 11, 2009 6:36 PM

General ASP.NET 3.5 Book Review

Back in the day, when I began to get interested in ASP.NET application architecture and design, I spent hours hunting for a book that would explain all I needed to know.  I wanted one that focused on ASP.NET, with its special demands, rather than a general .NET development book.  I wanted a book that would explain what layers and tiers were, and how I should separate code out to make it more scalable and reusable.  I wanted a book that would explain how I could take my skills to the next level. I couldn't find one.  There was a big gap in the market.  Vivek Thakur has attempted to fill this gap, with this apty named title: ASP.NET 3.5 Application Architecture and Design.

ASP.NET MVC - Battle of the Books

Monday, July 27, 2009 1:25 PM

General ASP.NET MVC Book Review

There's always a splurge of new books that come out around the RTM of any new ASP.NET related technology. Authors all over the place are burning the midnight oil, cursing the changes from one CTP to the next, through to Betas and hoping against hope that the Release Candidates and final RTMs aren't stuffed with "breaking changes" which inevitably mean total rewrites of whole sections or chapters in their draft. And then the race between the publishers is on, as each tries to get their offer to market before the others. Here, I look at three of the titles that were published around the time that ASP.NET MVC was launched, and give my judgement on how they fare in covering not only the core Framework but the key features that ASP.NET MVC is designed to offer:

Book Review - Beginning ASP.NET 3.5 in C# and VB

C# VB.Net ASP.NET 3.5 Book Review

Over the years, I have picked up and read many Beginners books that attempt to get someone started on the road to building web sites with ASP.NET. Nearly all of them assumed that their readers know more than they might. Some of them seem to assume that all readers are upgrading from one version of the .NET framework to another, while others assume that you already know about core web development technologies such as HTML, CSS, C# or VB etc. I well remember being frustrated with my first book, in that it didn't give me enough basic information to get started with web development, let alone web development with ASP.NET. Now, up steps Imar Spaanjaars, with his effort: Beginning ASP.NET 3.5 in C# and VB (Wiley/Wrox, ISBN: 978-0-470-18759-3).
