New Book Brings Together More than a Dozen MVPs

A new book on discovering and understanding the Microsoft .NET 4 Framework has special meaning to our community. Real World .NET 4 and C# is a collaborative project created by real-world experts—in fact a whopping 15 MVPs contributed to its making.


Each MVP wrote a chapter, drawing from a particular area of expertise to provide valuable information on using various .NET 4, C# 4, Silverlight 4, and Visual Studio tools in real world applications. They cover topics such as Windows Presentation Foundation, Silverlight 4, Windows Communication Foundation, ASP.NET performance, and the entity framework.

    Very cool idea…I had a big wish to write book, but couldnt manage time. I am sure lots of MVPs will show interest to write books jointly and when a book is written with dozens of MVPs, guess what it will be a master piece!

    Any development book with rowing on the cover must be good!  I'll have to check it out!
