Excellent source for learning to program Asp_Net MVC 2
This book is not a tutorial. While there is a lot of useful sample code, you won't find step by step instructions to create an MVC application. This book is also not a quick reference guide. While it is full of information, it is designed to be read and studied.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This book rates 4 stars for providing a thorough explanation of the features of ASP_Net MVC 2 and the programming philosophy behind it. The author goes beyond describing the various features, methods and architecture and gives the reasoning behind them. He not only describes HOW to do things, but gives very clear information about WHY you would want to do things in a particular way. The sections on customizing the built-in objects are extremely insightful.
Unfortunately, I had major problems trying to run the downloaded companion code under Visual Studio 2008 with .Net 3.5 framework. But that did not detract from the excellence of this book for learning to program Microsoft Asp_net MVC 2
