4.0 out of 5 stars Professional Book from Professionals, 28 April 2007
This review is from: Professional ASP.NET 2.0 (Programmer to Programmer) (Paperback)
Professional ASP.NET 2.0 is a 1253 paged book covering everything about ASP.NET 2.0. Reading this book and understanding the concepts and new features has been a wonderful experience who wants to dwelve into asp.net world. This book from 5 authors has everything right from scratch briefing the Visual Studio 2005 features to configuration, application management and deployment issues in developing a web solution.

If you are novice to asp.net development, do not have to worry too much! One could just follow the guidelines and information provided any chapter with little difficulty.

Almost 5 chapters are found dealing with Web pages and variety of asp.net controls that could make the reader a real professional in writing control programming. The chapter 10 on Collections and Lists is a unique one which I don't find in any ASP.NET books. It deals with using collection type of objects in web pages and clearly explain the C# 2.0 features in detail.

The book has two chapters on ADO.NET 2.0 describing binding and managing newly introduced data objects. The chapters 15,16,17 on Personalization, Membership and Role Management and Web Parts are stuffed with lots of examples and walk-throughs.

The chapter 18 on Security is nothing but the same old authentication and authorization features available in aspnet 1.1.

State Management and Caching features described in Chapter 20 and 21 are yet again the same old stuff plus the additional features avaialble in 2.0. But, these topics are all explained and placed in proper manner that reading them won't irk you at any point of time.

To worth to specify here is the chapter on Mobile development and Web services. With the entire architecture changed underneath the device oriented applications, the author(s) has took sincere efforts to gather the right information on technical aspects in device applications.

Most of the miscellaneous features covering File-IO, Debugging and C# and VB.NET language enhancements also found place in this book describing the most valuable changes that a developer using in his applications.

Professionls do like such books for two reasons. One, is that book being authored by experienced developers known for their professional work. And, two, the completeness and coverage of the topics spanning around 30 chapters;if they got to refer for a forgotten topic, this one is a right choice.
