The First Pure ASP.NET 2.0 Title,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pro ASP.NET 2.0 in C# 2005 (Paperback)
This is problably the first 2.0-specific book to hit store shelves. I'm currently building with Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2. AFAIK this build has the final major changes. The book seems to be written for the final VS release. In ohter words, I have not found any outdated examples yet in my reading.
I got this book last week and I'm very pleased with it. I jumped ahead straight to the Membership and Profile sections. There are *several* chapters on this! I'm very impressed so far with their teaching abilities and I appreciate the fact that they give full examples. First the authors cover how to use ASP.NET 2.0's shrinkwrapped solution. Then they give detailed information on how to implement your own custom providers for Memebership and Roles. This is fantastic because at the time of this review, I had not found any complete examples on how to do this.
So far this book hs a great reference and help to me. It's over 1,000 pages but nothing of what I've seen appears to be "fluff". Nice job! I would definitely recommend this ASP.NET/C# programmers. I think beginners can follow it and advanced users will like the solid 2.0 coverage.
