The complete software developer's guide to working in .NET environments
Praise for .NET Patterns:
"Was both insightful and comprehensive. It's great to see these patterns presented within the context of many architectural dilemmas facing the vastly interconnected enterprise. Web service architects are sure to see enormous value in this text."
—Ed Draper, Microsoft
Patterns have proven to be practical tools for the programmer who knows how to use them. In .NET Patterns, distributed computing and .NET expert Christian Thilmany presents both an introduction to patterns for programmers working in the .NET environment and a library of patterns unique to the .NET platform.
Part of John Vlissides' critically acclaimed Addison-Wesley Software Patterns Series, .NET Patterns extends the proven concept of design patterns into the arena of .NET design and development. Now, .NET developers can depend on patterns to provide solutions to recurring problems in software design.
In addition to covering both lower and higher level programming with patterns, this book also includes helpful primers on XML and web services, as well as thorough coverage of debugging, exceptions, error handling, and architecture.
Whether you're working in .NET environments or transitioning to .NET environments, you'll find .NET Patterns a comprehensive resource for software solutions.

A very practical code book for everyone. The writer seems to hit all areas of being practical and yet pointing out patterns that can be used in a person's life everyday. Read morePublished on March 3, 2009 by Sharon Thilmany

The negative reviews puzzle me completely! I can only imagine the readers were expecting something different or didn't read the same book I did... Read more
I really don't understand the bad ratings of other reviewers. Either these reviewers didn't read the book or they are totally in love with theoretical issues on design patterns. Read morePublished on September 12, 2004 by Josef Schiefer
There's some good stuff in this book, but it isn't a dedicated patterns book, if you ask me. On top of that there's just too much crap in the form of extremely poor editing... Read morePublished on July 15, 2004 by "handypandy1"
This is the poorest book to come out of Addison-Wesley Pub Co. It is simply not usable and a waste.Published on May 8, 2004
This more of a how-to book than a patterns book. The author tries hard to make this a patterns book but its not. Its not a bad book.. just not what I expected from it.Published on January 6, 2004 by V. Vaid
I have to agree with the previous reviewer about the low quality of the content in this book. It's kind of absurd to mention .NET and patterns in the same breath, since . Read morePublished on December 19, 2003 by "mark_schreiber"
