Recently I've started to lean towards using the Internet when I have a technical problem that I can't get past.

I bought this book to help with studying for my MCTS certification and found the answer to a problem I hadn't been able to resolve for days.

Microsoft Press books can be awful and too high level, but this one is very good in my opinion. I'd feel happy recommending it.

This is an excellent book for the person new to SharePoint. It covers SharePoint from the ground up, how WSS builds on ASP.NET / IIS, the inner working of SharePoint, etc.

And it also "reads well" ... I hate tech books that have the details, but are a pain to read

Well recommended

This is the best book I have found on SharePoint development - it goes into more detail than many others where you need it, but at the same time is relatively short and manageable. A really useful resource for any developer if you find yourself thinking "now, I forgot, how do I do OOOOO in SharePoint" then most likely the answer is in this book. It's also a great way to study for the MCTS Windows SharePoint Developer exam. I hope Ted Pattison brings out a similar book for SharePoint 2010.

If you are a .Net programmer and are begining to do work with SharePoint then this book is a great place to start.
All the exercises and code in this book work on both WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 versions of SharePoint technologies.

I like the way that within a couple of chapters you get going with some great Features with examples and code provided for you. Then you start learning in more detail about how all the pieces (of SharePoint, IIS and SQL) fit together, so giving you the confidence to start experimenting.
Best practices are emphasised throughout, and each chapter gives you a chunk of knowledge you can use right away.

Although this book was published 2 years ago, it is a great way to learn the key knowledge for SharePoint development. Once finished, just add 3 extra tools to make your life easier: VSEWSS from Microsoft, and WSPBuilder and maybe STSDev from Codeplex.

I have owned my well thumbed copy for ages, and I have lost count of the people I have recommended this book to.

Great new SharePoint book by Ted and Dan 1 Jun 2007
By Chicken Chaser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The SharePoint book that I have been waiting for the most has finally arrived. Back when I first heard that Ted Pattision and Daniel Larson were teaming up to write a SharePoint book, I got pretty excited. I knew these guys would have a knock-out book for SharePoint developers, and I'm happy to say I was right.

With this book, you will learn how to:

* Build application pages and site pages

* Develop and deploy reusable Web parts to enable customization and personalization

* Exploit Windows SharePoint APIs to deploy Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX components

* Use XML and Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) to create provisioning components

* Design and implement custom document libraries

* Use Windows Workflow Foundation to create applications that automate business process

* Create Site Definitions to aggregate components and package them for deployment

* Implement Code Access Security, Trust Levels, authentication, and authorization

Do yourself a huge favor, and spend five minutes ordering yourself a copy. It will save you hours down the road.

Staw Away Administrators 3 July 2007
By DCP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love everything about this book when it comes to WSS. It is well written, follows a great path and has a whole lot of information.

The only down side its it is hard to tell by looking at the book that this is a developers book. This is not for admins but for developers. 100% development and offers nothing to admins.Admins go here Beginning SharePoint 2007 Administration: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007

So unless you know all the MS Press color schemes, stay away unless you are a developer,

The best book about core SharePoint development 2 July 2007
By Andrew Connell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Few books focus just on the core foundation of SharePoint, WSS v3. In this book, Ted and Dan did a fantastic job of covering all the bases necessary. Even though I've been in the SharePoint world for years, and the betas for this current version for over 1.5 years, I was amazed how much stuff I picked up that I wasn't aware of. This is THE DEFINITITE GUIDE TO WSS v3 FOR DEVELOPERS! It should be on ~everyone~ desk if you're doing SharePoint development.

Decent Book - Focused on Programming not exam Prep 25 July 2008
By J. Ipock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a pretty good book for someone learning Sharepoint Services 3.0. Unlike a lot of other similarly named books, this one is focused on developing basic sharepoint programming techniques, as opposed to configuration. I bought this book, since it is recommended by Microsoft for the 70-541 certification exam. However, this book does not specifically point out which areas of the book are needed for the cert and which isn't. For example: if you are prepping for the cert, skip the Ajax section - it is worthless. Other areas are good, though.

One improvement that could be made - a DVD (or an FTP link) for a Virtual Machine that has a properly configured Sharepoint setup. Alternatively, a step-by-step appendix which shows how to configure and install all the needed tools, similar to the beginning of Mastering Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (Mastering).

Overall, it's a good book for learning how to program against Sharepoint... IF you know how to set up your dev environment. Do NOT use it as your sole information source, if you are prepping for the 70-541 exam.

Hope this helps!

Great intro to SharePoint development 9 April 2008
By Dan Arias - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was tasked with writing a connector to SharePoint for a third-party database. I didn't even know SharePoint existed before I was assigned this project. Of all the books I looked at, Pattison's book stood out as the most useful introduction to SharePoint development. This book provided helpful examples for my project and answered about 80% of my questions. A second edition could easily cover the rest along with some of the gotchas.

One burning question the book answered was whether one needed MOSS to do development. The answer was that WSS (included with Windows Server 2003) is sufficient.

Since I wasn't a Microsoft .NET developer some of the companion books I recommend for SharePoint development are Scribner's book for workflows, Liberty (et al)'s, and Hilyard (et al)'s books on C#. I'm still looking for a good book for ASP development. It was a bit of a struggle using both Walther's and MacDonald (et al)'s books.
