Book everyone using ASP.NET MVC should have on their desk Nov. 14 2009
By Antonacci Igor - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although I've been a Web Developer for several years, I changed my career path since few years and all my knowledge about Web Programming was not-so-fresh.
Beginning ASP.NET MVC drove me through the new way of making THE WEB with the MVC pattern in the .NET World.

Simone and Keyvan start with Chapters regarding all the basic building blocks of ASP.NET MVC (from what a Model/ a View / a Controller are, to ActionFilters, ActionControllers and so on) with very clever examples.

Every chapter starts with the assumption the reader has no knowledge about such topic and, at the end, makes you aware of what that piece is and how to use it in next chapters.

I've been ready in less than 2 weeks with my first real-world (simple) Application...and I neither finished the book at that time!

The book also covers technologies an "ASP.NET MVC Starter" should know about to let a Web Application works: Ajax, Security (Authentication - Authorization).
Final Chapters get the reader a basic but good idea on how to extend ASP.NET MVC and how to use it in the real world following a couple of
Case Studies.

All chapters are pushing the reader thru the Test-Driven Development methodology: the way of programming ASP.NET MVC has been though on.
Very practical but won't leave you without theoretical topics in mind.

It is my definitive MVC Reference even now I feel more "comfortable" with this new Technology: it covers all I need for a good Web Application.

Personal Experience and gain in knowledge: EXCELLENT; one of the best technical book I ever read.

Easiest way to learn MVC Sept. 26 2009
By De Sanctis Marco - Published on
Format: Paperback
What I really liked on reading this book was the "I show you the actual code and then explain how it works" approach. It's very practical: you won't find a lot of theoretical concepts (although they're definitely part of the book) as any concept is explained by examples which you can eventually reproduce on your own computer. The book covers a wide range of aspects about developing web apps with ASP.NET MVC, starting from the basics of the project's anatomy, going through AJAX and Unit testing, and ending with customizing the framework to your needs. If you are a web forms developer, you never touched MVC and you want to be ready for it in a couple of weeks, well... this book is for you.

Truly a beginner book oriented more towards WebForms Programmer April 8 2010
By Ayp - Published on
Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know about ASP.NET MVC.

This book is more oriented towards the ASP.NET WebForms programmer who are trying to make the transition to

ASP.NET MVC way of programming. Having said that anyone - even those who have not done ASP.NET WebForms

programming - can understand the concept and can get going. The book explains things gradually step by step so

that any body can understand it. The book also contains "Try it out" sessions where the sources are given

first and then explained later by highlighted code. The highlighted code reinforce the new concepts we just

got introduced to. The book also provides exercises to do at the end of each chapter and the solutions are

provided in Appendix B in case you are struck with your solution. In short this book covers everything a MVC

beginner programmer needs to know.

Sometimes I wish the authors are precise and not very eloborate - but I guess the authors wanted to make sure

that the beginner gets the concepts right and so were very eloborate.

Came highly recommended Oct. 23 2009
By Dave Dustin - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although I haven't read it cover to cover yet, I purchased this because the rest of the dev team are all making use of MVC, and given that my dev role is secondary (Primarly a DBA), I don't get to play in the big projects.

But flipping through the book, I can easily tell that this is going to fill in a lot of the gaps and answer the questions I've been having while trying to get up to speed.

Great book Sept. 21 2009
By Villa Luca - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have just finished reading this book and I find that has been written very well, in very easy way to read, with and many examples that guide the readers step by step through all the chapters of the book.
It was easy for me to learn MVC on ASP.NET by the case study and and exercises.
I think that It's one of the best books to learn MVC ASP.NET. Great book really.
