By Craig E. Shea on December 1, 2011
Format: Paperback
Well, the book isn't as technical as I would've liked, but I guess the author did kind of say that up front in the introduction to this book. It's not really a programmer's book for SharePoint. HOWEVER, having said that, if you've never done SharePoint development before (ever), then this would be a pretty good place to start. If you're an experienced developer with a background in ASP.Net and/or Silverlight, then you will be able to skip a good amount of stuff and just focus on what's different/new when developing in SharePoint.

Why 4 stars and not 5? Well, because sometimes the instructional exercises are not clear about when/where certain steps are to be performed. As a book geared towards those who have never done SharePoint development before, this is a big deal. In fact, some of the steps are just plain wrong (it looks like the author may have been using a Beta or Release Candidate version of SharePoint 2010--based on some of the screenshots that appear in the book--but even so, there is no errata at Wrox's site. And, I didn't post one because it was too much of a pain to do so). In particular, Chapter 4, pp. 155-156, steps 7-15 are not correct. In fact, in the later steps, looking at the Site Settings page in SharePoint, there is no Look and Feel section anymore (at least, not as a major category header) and I could not find where the author was talking about to apply a custom master page that was created in this exercise as the site's master page.

Other than that, though, the book is overall very good about explaining the high-level concepts pertinent to SharePoint 2010 development--and I do mean high-level; this book is really geared to brand new SharePoint developers with possibly little previous development experience.

I have read several technical books on different technologies and this book is by far the worst. The author does not explain any of the concepts well enough to really understand them and I had to troubleshoot the majority of the exercises just to get them to work. I spent more time debugging his poorly written examples than actually reading the book. In chapter five there is an example of an Excel add-in that pulls in a SharePoint list. In the 3rd step of the exercise he states that we must build the project using .Net 3.5 framework but his code example shows we need to have a "using System.Xaml" directive which is only available in the .Net 4.0 framework. In that same chapter he briefly walks through how to build a custom WCF web service to interact with a SharePoint list but doesn't explain how to deploy it or get it to work. Reading this book has been one of the most frustrating experiences and I can never get the time I spent on it back.

I have 10 years experiences as Web Developer and I want to getting into SharePoint 2010. The book is easy to understand if you new to SharePoint. However, I felt that the excersies could be better. I find myself struggling try to follow step by step instruction and run into so many problems, such as I cannot find item on the menu/ribbon, deploy object but it didn't show up in SharePoint, etc. I'm on chapter 4 right now and planning to giving up.

I hardly write any book reviews, but I felt obligated to write one this time. This book is full of errors, and it is impossible to follow the step-by-step guides of the book which make up the majority of the book. It seems like the author is using a different version of SharePoint. Don't waste your time and money.

I will never buy another Wrox published book again. This book is disastrous. The author half acknowledges mistakes and then adds lame excuses as to why the errors occurred. Next, he says that he is going the blog about fixes to the errors in the book instead of issuing an Errata on the "Wrox" website specifically established communicating information about the book. I searched through his blogs which offer little help for the numerous errors in the book. I am only at for Chapter 5 and I give up. I'm even sorry that I have to waste more time writing this review except that I hope someone will read this post and stay away from Wrox publishing titles and especially Steve Fox.

I have been working in the SharePoint space exclusively since 2003 and have trained hundreds of people in SharePoint development. People who are new to SharePoint need structured learning with step-by-step examples in order to be successful. This book delivers exactly the kind of learning experience that developers need to get started with SharePoint or to transition from ASP.NET development. Steve Fox is a recognized expert in SharePoint development, an excellent communicator, and someone who understands what concepts are important in the massive platform that is SharePoint. If you are trying to break into SharePoint development, you should get this book, read it cover-to-cover and work every sample.

I couldn't say more. This book is perfect for a developer. It teaches you the basics for SharePoint development. Not everything, but enough to get you started on your own. This book took me very far. I've written very complex business applications that integrate deep into SharePoint. This book doesn't teach how to write complex business applications, but it teaches you enough that someday you could write your own with your own experience.
