Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Working developers have plenty of reasons to like Visual Studio 2005, and this book illuminates all of them. Coauthored by Microsoft MVP Nick Randolph, Professional Visual Studio 2005 is all about using VS '05 to build better software, and do it more productively and safely.

That's why, for instance, there's an eight-chapter section on automation, with comprehensive coverage of everything from code generation templates to preemptive error correction. It's why that section is followed by even more timesavers, from regular expressions to registry hacks. It's why VS '05's key security features, including cryptography and code obfuscation, each warrant their own chapter.

From code snippets and IntelliSense to Visual Studio 2005's highly touted refactoring tools and generics support, if it makes you more effective, it's in here. Bill Camarda, from the October 2006 Read Only
