Earlier this month Rui Maximo, one of the authors of Programming for Unified Communications with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 (Microsoft Press, 2009; ISBN: 9780735626232; 416 pages), posted here about the book. Here’s part of what Rui said:
We saw a void that needed to be filled to help independent software developers better understand the rich development platform offered by Office Communications Server and develop against it. The author team was assembled beginning of last year to deliver on that objective. We trashed a lot trying to figure out the best structure and content to cover because we knew we couldn’t cover all the APIs in the first edition. We hope you enjoy the format of this book. Instead of covering too much theory, we took the approach of jumping straight into coding examples and explaining the APIs as we went. If you’re like us, we figured you might get impatient and want to start coding right away. Consequently, the majority of the book is focused on short coding examples that you can follow to understand how the APIs work. You can fire up Visual Studio 2008 and start building great applications!
Today we’d like to share the book’s full TOC (not just chapter titles) so that you can better understand the book’s structure and coverage. You can grab the TOC here.
