Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
In particular, I found the sections that covered MVVM particularly helpful. On the downside, I think the discussion
in Chapter 7 on Remote Data Services neglects Azure. A developer may want to logically progress from
using SQL Express to using Azure but this book doesn't cover it in any detail.
The book does cover Windows Azure Mobile Services in a later chapter.
I think the book doesn't give the Microsoft implementation of SOAP the respect it deserves. If you wanted to get something
running quickly, reliably and maintainable for the long haul in a line-of-business application environment, it could often be the
best way to go.
My biggest complaint is with the Amazon's Kindle Apps that I used to read the book. Honestly, I'm not going to steal the
book if you give me a decent cut and paste feature so that I don't have to retype the example code. Such
cheapeosity is beyond my vocabulary. On the plus side, Microsoft has done an excellent job with VS2013 by
extending Intellisense even to data binding strings and adding other features such as Snippets that makes typing in source
code almost a pleasure.
