5.0 out of 5 stars A great book focused on Access 2013 webapps, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Professional Access 2013 Programming (Paperback)
Access webapps - there are scores of books on Access programming (some including a section about webapps). But there is none devoted to the new 2013 flavour of Access webapps. - Correction: As of the time of my writing, there is this book, and none other to my knowledge. Why it does not say so in bold letters on the cover defeats me. I think it is an error of design, but if I am right in that respect, then it is an error that suits me fine.
Access webapps is an awesome concept: To combine the versatility, individuality and decentrality of Access presentation+I/O on the one hand, and the central storage and safe-handling of data by SQL Server on the other hand is simply a concept that rocks. There are still limitations to the implementation by Microsoft, but the principle is super sound. - It is easy and intuitive to get started. You can go a long way by that, but you do get to a point where there are clearly more possibilities, but it becomes a challenge to put the pieces together correctly. Internet resources are still scarce. And now there is this book.
I've only had the books for a few days by now and have only performed selected readings. Still, I have found what I looked for, presented in an easy and logical manner - and without all the inconsistencies too often found in the first and early editions of IT books written on the basis of pre-release editions of the software concerned. Thumbs up, and five stars from me.
(For the record: Final 250 pages, 30% of the book, is about traditional client-server design and development. I have no opinion about that part, but suspect it must be anything but comprehensive.)
