I really do not like it when technical books carry along the reader with clear instructions and examples and then, BAM out of nowhere, you don't understand anything they're saying. This books starts out great the first 4 or 5 chapters and then out of nowhere it goes from beginner/intermediate to seasoned veteran. For example, they jump right into complex design patters like dependency injection and Test Driven Dev without a complete tutorial on how to build a site without them.
This book still has promise as a reference manual but in my opinion just go out to the asp.net website and follow their tutorials, much better so far.
This book is best-geared towards an intermediate MVC developer who recognizes the basics of MVC and needs a boost to really master what the framework is doing and how to write an application from the ground up. Freeman also gives plentiful examples of test-driven development which are geared towards those with no experience with unit testing.
I rented the book for one month on my Kindle and am going to buy it since it's one I'll want to use as a reference for years to come.
This books has so far been the best book is have gotten my hands on. It is easy to understand and follow and is coming at a time when it is starting to make sense and the MVC archetecture is specifically how I am building this project.
There are easy to follow workshops to build the apps allowing you to see how all the pieces come together and work with so many options and moving pieces its important to have the web app build.
I am entering intermediate space and I really like this books so far and I cant wait for the Client version to come out.
I've a couple of years of ASP.NET forms development under my belt and some experience with using MVVM in Silverlight.
I picked up this book having no experience with MVC in ASP.NET.
I'm about half way through the book and what I appreciate the most is the first half of the book walks one through an example online store with a substantive, but not overbearing, explanation of things along the way. The last half of the book has in depth chapters on each of the different MVC feature to which you've been introduced in the example store you've built.
I appreciate this approach because:
1: Too much theory up front is confusing and entirely too dry.
2: The practical example you work up front gives the in-depth topics in the back some context.
3: The author's approach is coherent - it isn't scattershot like so many technology books I've read.
This is the book you read before ASP.NET MVC Platform (same author).
I've purchased that second book already and I'll be checking for more titles by this author in the future.
Thanks Adam Freeman!
Please note this book is labeled "Pro" for a reason. You must know the major fundamental concepts of object-oriented development in C#, as well as an understanding of client-side web development, before you want to read this.
But given that, this covers every topic you'll need to know for MVC 5 in a highly readable, informative (and at times, humorous) book.
