5.0 out of 5 stars Most useful recent Microsoft software development book on the market 23 Feb. 2015
By J Grenadier - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have now coded up most all of the exercises in this book. They were useful and well explained.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets 19 Aug. 2014

Straight to the point what you need. Detailed history and explanations....and code for you to follow with every lesson as you build up a real application. I have been watching and reading Jesse Liberty for a long time now. As good as it gets.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for Windows 8.1 Development! 18 Jun. 2014
By Cerebral Mischief - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book contains several very good tips/tricks as well as best practices on how to properly build engaging and wonderful Windows 8.1 applications. With details about how to produce useful tiles, properly using asynchronous development to provide a response UI while other threads are performing other slow tasks. Over all this book is a must have for any developer looking to build solid Windows 8.1 applications!
