Todd has a great advantage at being one of the "first" -- many of the other SharePoint books aren't due until much later this year. Quite an impressive feat.
Yes, there are a few typos, and probably a few errata will be released -- I don't care. He does a great job covering the new stuff and comparing it to the old stuff.
If you are TOTALLY new to SharePoint Development, you may wanna skip this one. However, if you are a hardcore MOSS developer and "gotta have the info", this is a great start. It pretty much covers almost every aspect of WSS 3.0 development. I have been working with MOSS 2007/WSS 3.0 for some time now, and I learned a lot from this book. This is NOT a depth book on WSS -- this is a breadth book. Combine this with the other content emerging (MSDN, blogs, wikis, etc.), and you have a real head start on ramping up on this great technology -- before it has been officially released!
If you want to get your feet wet with SharePoint programming, you can't go wrong with this book.
It is apparent that this book was put out to market before it was truly ready, yet I am grateful that it exists imperfectly or I wouldn't have any good resource for developing with SharePoint.
The author provides a website to address erata including a forum which he responds to at times. The website has helped me get over some tutorial problems mentioned above.
The book is definitely worth the money; the examples have saved me considerable pain and frustration.
Your boss has already told you to use WSS
You already know what WSS is supposed to do
You have some programming experience, especially in C#
You know about the .NET Framework
You have some basic knowledge of how the web works
You really want to know about WSS.
If you don't know what WSS is, the first sentence says that it 'is the ideal platform for the creation of reusable and modular websites for use in an intranet, extranet, or Internet scenario.' But I thought that same sentence would do for a book on Front Page or ASP.NET or a whole bunch of other technologies.
Summary, a good book for the developer, too advanced for the complete beginner. If you're a beginner I'd suggest that you start with SharePoint For Dummies then move to this book.
Oh, and it is all you can buy at the moment anyway!
This book would have been perfect.. if I didnt get to the first big code example (page 205-209) and find so many bugs.. Work thru setting up this project and you will see what I mean. This has kind of scared me away from the rest of the coding examples in the book.. some other typos and such (isnt it a foreword????) that made me smile right off..
Bottom line - SPS 3.0 explained well, dont trust the coding examples.
