Although I tend to be frugal with praise, this book has earned my 5 stars.
Ashok Pai
Faced with this, Sahil has put together a great book that covers quite a lot of the breadth and provides the depth necessary for developers to get rolling.
Scot Hillier
The real practical examples in the book are really nice and made the things easy to understand.

First, this book is good. I would recommend it without question to developers who are working on the SharePoint platform. Sahil Malik covers many of the new features as well as goes over some of the basics in a practical, mostly easy to read manner; there's practical advice in every chapter that you'll want to highlight and tuck away in your brain.

However, it's pretty apparent that the book was rushed (at least editorially) due to the large number of grammar mistakes, awkward sentences, terrible analogies (some of them a bit inappropriate in any textbook), and somewhat questionable _structure_ of the content.

Again, Sahil does a good job of capturing a lot of the key changes in 2010 and gives good examples (chapter 5 being the most interesting to me, personally). If I were grading on content alone, the book would be closer to 5 stars. It's the editing team at Apress that have let down Mr. Malik by not putting enough attention in properly structuring and organizing the content and not performing adequate proofreading. I feel that many of the concepts and ideas could have been organized a bit differently and more coherently to help the reader better link the concepts together and have a clearer path to ramping up. It may have helped if the book had a more focused target audience (Mr. Malik himself points out that the book is broad in nature).

That said, as I mentioned in the opening of the review, I would definitely recommend this for SharePoint developers who are transitioning or preparing to transition from 2007. Despite it's flaws, it's still worthy of the time and money that you'll invest in it.

This review is long due. I had bought this book when it was first published and since then I have used this book repeatedly numerous times whenever I need extra hand during my SharePoint Development. If you are developer and understand the basics of the SharePoint and needs to build the custom solutions on top of SharePoint technologies then this is book for you. If you are not planning to use Visual Studio then stay away from this book. This is targeted to both seasoned ASP.NET and entry level SharePoint developers. Even as a seasoned developer, I simply loved this book along with Sahil's dry humor. This book starts out with step by step process of building VM needed for the SharePoint development. Once you have VM ready, it will take you thorugh features and solutions framework basics. Middle four chapters discussing web parts, SharePoint pages, client object model, ADO.NET data services, building Lists and List Instances are true gems. Go for it. You will not disappoint.

SharePoint 2010 is a massive platform. It is simply impossible to imagine a single book that could cover the breadth and depth of development in 2010. Faced with this, Sahil has put together a great book that covers quite a lot of the breadth and provides the depth necessary for developers to get rolling. The target audience is an ASP.NET developer moving into SharePoint development. In my mind, this means that a lot of people need to read this book because every ASP.NET developer should be learning SharePoint development as well. While any given chapter in the book could easily be a book in its own right, Sahil has done a great job focusing on the most-important aspects that developers need to be successful. Well done!

As a .NET developer who has worked "around" SharePoint 2007 for a couple of years, I was looking for a book that would give me a solid overview of what it takes to write my own code for SharePoint 2010. Sahil's book was just what I was looking for.

It is well paced, interspersing theory with chunks of real code and meaty walkthroughs. You get to see how things work without that overly code-heavy, I've-been-reading-this-same-page-for-an-hour approach that plagues many technical books. And Sahil's sense of humor keeps you awake just when things start to get a little dry.

I highly recommend this book for developers who are comfortable with .NET and have a basic understanding of what SharePoint does from a user's perspective.

Format: Paperback
I was lucky to receive one of the first copies of this book that were given to attendees of Sahil Malik's advanced 5 days SharePoint course in June 2010 in Oslo. The course was based on the book's content, and we spent the whole week going through the book's chapters and applying what we just learned to various labs that Sahil prepared for us. I must say when it comes to SharePoint Sahil knows absolutely everything. He has a strong advantage of being an author of other books on advanced .NET topics, so he presents SharePoint as a complex .NET product rather than just content management of Web site provisioning system. And SharePoint is really hard to present right. Those familiar with Microsoft Foundation Classes know how ackward it is to look at some methods inherited their names from the era of 16 bit development. Backward compatibility never improves product's elegance. The same it true for SharePoint: it's full of legacy heritage, it's built around Web forms that are also considered by many developers to be a legacy technology. You should memorize that classes SPSite and SPWeb refer to site collection and site respectively, and today they would have been named differently.

However, Sahil Malik managed to show a clear view of SharePoint architecture and present best practices of building applications with it. Moreover, being a master of whole spectrum of .NET platfrom, he shows brilliant examples of using SharePoint together with other technologies: Silvelight, WCF, REST, Office etc. I was completely new to SharePoint development, but after one week of book study and lab excercises I was confident to manage various SP tasks: from configuring a SharePoint server to building business intelligence solutions.
