Format: Paperback
Unless you have been sleeping under a rock, you know that the cloud is the next great frontier in SharePoint development. Understanding how SharePoint integrates with the cloud is another story. Getting a clear vision of the approach, best practices, and benefits is a challenge. That's where this book comes in. This is a practical, hands-on, guide to creating solutions with SharePoint in the cloud. Beyond the basics, the book walks you through real solutions that you can leverage today without a lot of fluff to get in the way. Projects in the book span the major SharePoint workloads so there's bound to be something related to any project you might have on your own development plate. I especially liked the security and Office 365 chapters. Nice job!

Like the other reviewers have said, the cloud represents a huge new growth area for SharePoint. Going forward you can see that Office 365 (SharePoint Online) will offer developers tons of new opportunities and new customers coming into the SharePoint platform. This book does a great job of walking the reader through some real world practical solutions they can implement inthe cloud from integrating SharePoint Online with Microsoft CRM and Azure among other things. I really liked the Office 365 and security chapters... the intro to the security chapter has by far the best description of claims based security I've ever seen. Great job guys!

One of the challenges with technology these days, is it's complexity. This applies to all of us, but especially for developers. In an era of mobile applications, ever shrinking budgets, and ever increasing efficiency, the push for cloud is the next revolution. Traditionally we have always thought of SharePoint as an on-premise solution, and Office365 breaks out of that mold, but isn't quite as effective until you add Azure to it. The world desperately seeks guidance on this topic. Guidance, which this book aptly presents.

Let me tell you why I specifically like this book,

1. It's timing, it is the right set of knowledge when we need it. Thanks to the authors for sharing their knowledge with us on this very very important topic.
2. It's coverage, it addresses every single topic concerning modern day cloud ready SharePoint applications. This includes O365 coverage, SharePoint on-premises coverage, and coverage around most aspects of Azure.
3. Practicality of the choice of their chapters and examples. I was honestly a bit wary of 3 Microsoft guys writing this book - because they tell the story from the inside, the personality of their books end up being the personality of a whitepaper. This book is not like that. They have choosen to not regurgitate MSDN, but instead show practical examples such as 'creating a training application using SharePoint online', or 'using twitter in SharePoint solutions', or 'Connecting linked in to SharePoint profile data'. Holy Moly - this is what my customers ask me to do all the time, this is the guidance I need .. NOT .. that "SPSite is a SharePoint site" sorta documentation that MSDN is full of (Sorry MSDN).
4. Not ignoring security, I love Chapter 11 for this.
