Great reference book for any .NET developer working on back end technologies i.e Entity framework and delivering data using web services by the way of WCF. Goes into the details of the layered architecture. Examples are good and to the point. Book is laid out well and contains 13 chapters and explains the concepts very well. Best part is that it is easy to get to the specific information you are looking for while working on your own projects.I urge the author/publisher to come out with another edition of this book that explains the use of EF with the newer "Web API technology".
Excellent book. This book took me from having little understanding of WCF Web Services to having a great understanding. All the examples were straight-forward, easy to follow, and informative. You'll definitely be glad you bought this book if you're serious about learning WCF Web Services.
This book has a lot of useful information explained in a very concise way.If you wanna learn WCF in a quick and straight-to-the-point way, this is the book.
What is really great about this book is the the author does not assume you know anything. Each example gives you precise instructions how to carry it out. Click this, Enter that. Here is some potential error messages you can get when you do this. Very little is left to chance and almost 100% of the projects work every time. The writing is clear and concise. He starts with simple concepts and builds on them. I wish all the programming books out there were more like this.
