Learning software and programming is a lot like learning to play the piano. If you want to learn how to play the piano, you need to sit down in front of it and start practicing scales. You do not need to read 1000+ pages about piano theory.
This book is based off of the exact same principals. If you work through this book, you will get better at ArcGIS.
The book was published recently and the author uses the latest ArcGIS release at this time which is 10.3. The examples are written for the Visual Basic version of Visual Studio .NET and although I am not a developer I have been able to adapt the examples from the book in some applications we are building at work.
The author goes from simple examples to intermediate and more advanced applications that can be easily applied to your daily flow of work. I particularly found interesting the application in chapter 4 “Real Time Maneuvering” where a person is been tracked through the GPS signal of a cell phone and the distance from this person to a control tower is updated in real time to finally calculate signal strength.
The author hosts a channel in Youtube called IGeometry where he has published a big amount of videos in the topic of ArcObjects and that He keeps up to date with new releases of videos. You can reach him with question and most of the time He answers shortly.
