Format: Paperback
For a while now i have been looking at writing a CMS in .NET, but the majority of .NET books out there either did not cover the specifics or were written quite poorly.

Now people that know me, know i hate reading and in all honesty i would rather wait for the movie. Well i guess this one wont get made into a movie so i decided to take the plunge and actually read it! Well i was quite surprised for the first time in what must be 10 years, i had a book that kept me reading. At one point i was still up at 4 am, i just could not put it down!!

So yes in my opinion it is a great book.

Any way, the book covers the building a CMS framework in ASP.NET 4, i guess you worked that out due to the title of the book! I found it to be very well written and covers the basics. The Author leaves quite a bit for you to do and expand yourself which IMHO is great as it helps you learn rather than just copy everything word for word.

I would say i was a medium skill level .NET developer before reading this, but still learning. Upon reading this book i felt that i learnt quite a lot (not quiet expert yet though), but i would happily recommend this for novices, even though the Author says its best suited to experienced people i still feel novices could learn quite a bit with the accompanying source code.

At the end of the day if your going to buy one ASP.NET book this year, get this one!! It not only covers building a CMS, it also allows you to build on your ASP.NET knowledge along with other languages too! Not to mention building a CMS is a great way to learn how .NET works!

Good Intro to Technologies - Short on CMS 8 Feb. 2011
By mstechnewbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Firstly, let me say that this review is based upon a cursory reading and review of the book. In other words, I have not sat down in front of Visual Studio to develop any of the examples presented in the book, nor taken a glance at the source code associated with the book. Given that understanding, let me start with what I find good about the book. The book does its job well as described on the cover to teach "the latest features of .NET 4 to build powerful ASP.NET web applications." For example, as described also in the Product Description, above, it does teach how to use P/LINQ, DLR, MEF, IronPython, Axum, and AJAX. I did not see much on MVC, though, other than a brief introduction to the technology in chapter 1. The book also provides and in-depth discussion of "distributed caching via memcached," as described in What you'll learn, above.

Where the book falls short, really short, is that it doesn't teach almost anything, other than a very high-level overview of some of the concepts and very brief database design to support the Content Management System (CMS). All examples seem to be based on a hardcoded page that includes some HTML that is supposed to be representative of some content. More pages are spent on implementing tagging, than on anything that I think would be associated with a CMS. In the chapter on MEF, a brief introduction to a PageAssembler class is shown, that builds (or assembles) buckets and embeddables, and an example is also shown of creating an embeddable for breadcrumbs, but very little of anything else to do with a CMS. For example, nothing on integrating an HTML editor or handling images is shown or discussed. I guess what's really missing is the design of more of the embeddables that would go into a CMS.

By following this book you will get a good framework for a web application using some of the latest features and technologies of the .NET 4 framework, but don't look for much on designing and building a CMS. Now, the source code associated with the book, which I've yet to delve in, may have the greatest full-featured CMS, but don't look for much instruction in the book on building or developing a CMS. Given that, it is still a good book for what it does do. If you're looking to learn how to build a CMS, though, this book will not get you there.
