This book was written with the experienced .NET developer in mind. Many of the chapters talk specifically about the enhancements of changes that have been introduced with the new versions of the .NET Framework. However, when those readers who are not fluent in .NET development should be able to take a lot out of the detailed examples provided in this book. For the experienced reader, a few ¿history¿ chapters have been added to help identify when various functionality has been added so that you can quickly identify the needed toolset to be able to adopt a specific feature. This book focuses on enhancements that have been added to .NET and Visual Studio 2010 over previous versions. In certain chapters and sections, a more historical view is presented to help provide context. For example, in the chapters discussing WCF, an examination of WCF basics and features added in .NET 3.5 are needed to help provide a full understanding of the functionality provided in the 4.0 release.Was this review helpful?
