Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent, throrough and well written discussion of a number of advanced topics in .Net development such as asynchronous operations using delegates and threads, synchronisation, serialisation and others. Tells you not only the best way to get things done but also expalins the motivations for making a particular implementation choice.

Don't be misled by the somewhat specialised title - the book should be read by all types of developers not just those writing components for use by others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Late to the game... 9 Jan. 2014
By Futureman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been developing in Microsoft for about 12 years - and most recently in C# and WPF. I saw a reference to this book on a StackOverflow message thread, so I thought I'd pick up a copy. Result? I am admittedly an Old Dog, but I can definitely be taught new tricks....and I learned a LOT from this book. The whole "component" philosophy - specifically Interface-oriented design - has really helped me understand where to go with some of my current projects; I highly recommend this book...especially since it's apparently not being updated with new editions and is easily obtainable on the Amazon 2nd-hand market.

I know - you're thinking: "what took you so long to grasp this stuff?" I guess technology - like so many other cultural practices - takes a while to trickle down. But this book is a waterfall of I'll keep returning to.

Great read...enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of A Kind On .NET Components And C# Programming 27 Feb. 2008
By Armen Jamkotchian - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Without any second thought I will place this book among the best books on the subject ever published. I hope everybody will agree that there are only a few books that worth reading from the beginning to the end without skipping a page. To me this is one of those rare books.
The author manages to reflect on broad architectural concepts and yet be extremely specific. He was able to present the most complicated aspects of component oriented programming and the C# language in a very simple, yet concise manner. Many complex issues that may turn off even experienced programmers are described in a way that not only are very well understood, but could easily be migrated into a working program. The author has found an absolutely perfect balance of presenting general architectural aspects of the subject he is discussing and real life implementation techniques.
I truly believe that anybody who is dealing with such aspects (to name but a few) as serialization, asynchronous invocation, multithreading, reflection, events, delegates, deterministic finalization, etc., MUST read this book.
By the way, this author has published another wonderful book on Windows Communication Foundation - "Programming WCF".

5.0 out of 5 stars .Net on Steroids ! 25 April 2008
By Shan Man - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A Classic Book that begins it's journey, where all books end. The true difference between a casual programmer and a disciplined programmer is more prominent in his/her code when they start using advanced features of the framework. A true programmer knows his stuff in and out and knows how to leverage the features of the framework effectively in every line of code. And to get to that level of proficiency it takes reading and practicing the concepts on daily basis. And if at all, there is any book out there, that will help you, then it is this book. A definite YES. 5 Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb component compendium 24 Nov. 2011
By Miszka - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At first I was very skeptical because of the year and version of the presented technology. Nowadays, .NET framework 2.0 is a bit old but don't be misled. This book is all about conventions, rules, possibilities and ways You should write Your programs. This is a great book for beginners and intermediates to develop skills of component programming - a very desirable skill in today's world. Every larger project, every bigger dev studio uses the paradigms of component programming, because it cuts costs, makes programs extensible, takes care of the problem of versioning and makes the components reusable in future projects. All of this is compatible with .net framework 4.0.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for every .NET architect and developer 30 Sept. 2005
By T Anderson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a must read for every .NET architect and developer that is doing any type of Product Line Engineering or Framework building. Component-oriented development is the heart of both and this book teaches you how to do it correctly.

Mr. Lowy has done a great job of putting everything you need to know about how to do Component-oriented development in .NET 2.0 into one place. I highly recommend this book.
