1.0 out of 5 stars Perfect example of how NOT to write a book, September 7, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Professional DotNetNuke 5: Open Source Web Application Framework for ASP.NET (Paperback)
The authors waste the first 73 pages of this book talking about their backgrounds and the history of dotnetnuke.
For someone who is trying to learn the technology as it exists today, this is trivia and a waste of valuable time. The one reason I bought the book was to learn how to compile custom modules in Visual Studio (which is advertises as explaining). In the 534 pages of piecemealed fragments of information and code, this was never explained. This book is a puzzle that you, the inexperienced DNN developer, have to piece together and hope for the best. Code examples supposedly downloadable from DNN's website were unavailable there. In a word - pathetic. Don't waste your money.
