The book is perfect for me...it has intermediate and advanced concepts. The SportStore sample is simple but scopes all the main facets of MVC. I don't agree in that Adam doesn't pay attention to UT: there are tons of samples using mocking and dependency injection...It's good for me
So good that I already bought the new edition (MVC 6) but sadly the release date was delayed to march 2016. I think that all this time could be help to enhance the index section, please!
Thank you very much, and sorry for my english...
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.
One point I'd like to add is that I like to use this book for as a reference for issues I'm not comfortable with, as it gives a more well-rounded and connected picture then blog/SO posts.
I found, unfortunately, as I prefer using the dead-treed version, that the Index part of the book is too thin and sparse for such use, and many of the keywords I'm interested in are lacking there (Razr directives, keywords and so on)... I would expect more comprehensive Index, like in OReilly books.
To use the book as a reference, I recommend to get your hands on a pdf/ebook version, and search up the keywords you are interested in, and if you wish, then go to the according page of the physical book.
I hope the redaction, if they read the comments here, will enhance the Index part of the book in the next edition.
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.
Chapter 12: SportsStore: Security & Finishing Touches is the only chapter in the book dedicated to security. In this chapter the author chooses to use an obsolete technique for authenticating users. Although he notes this in the chapter, I think a better approach would have been to dedicate those pages to introducing the ASP.NET Identity system that is replacing ASP.NET Membership.
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.
I also never could figure out how to get the referenced materials from the publisher's website. Neither one of these things affects my 5 stars though. Great book you can't go wrong.
