Practical Guide to SharePoint and the Cloud Nov. 28 2011
By Scot Hillier - Published on
Format: Paperback
Unless you have been sleeping under a rock, you know that the cloud is the next great frontier in SharePoint development. Understanding how SharePoint integrates with the cloud is another story. Getting a clear vision of the approach, best practices, and benefits is a challenge. That's where this book comes in. This is a practical, hands-on, guide to creating solutions with SharePoint in the cloud. Beyond the basics, the book walks you through real solutions that you can leverage today without a lot of fluff to get in the way. Projects in the book span the major SharePoint workloads so there's bound to be something related to any project you might have on your own development plate. I especially liked the security and Office 365 chapters. Nice job!

Great SharePoint+Cloud book with practical solutions Dec 7 2011
By Andrew Connell - Published on
Format: Paperback
Like the other reviewers have said, the cloud represents a huge new growth area for SharePoint. Going forward you can see that Office 365 (SharePoint Online) will offer developers tons of new opportunities and new customers coming into the SharePoint platform. This book does a great job of walking the reader through some real world practical solutions they can implement inthe cloud from integrating SharePoint Online with Microsoft CRM and Azure among other things. I really liked the Office 365 and security chapters... the intro to the security chapter has by far the best description of claims based security I've ever seen. Great job guys!

A difficult but well handled topic Jan. 6 2012
By HairyMidget - Published on
Format: Paperback
One of the challenges with technology these days, is it's complexity. This applies to all of us, but especially for developers. In an era of mobile applications, ever shrinking budgets, and ever increasing efficiency, the push for cloud is the next revolution. Traditionally we have always thought of SharePoint as an on-premise solution, and Office365 breaks out of that mold, but isn't quite as effective until you add Azure to it. The world desperately seeks guidance on this topic. Guidance, which this book aptly presents.

Let me tell you why I specifically like this book,

1. It's timing, it is the right set of knowledge when we need it. Thanks to the authors for sharing their knowledge with us on this very very important topic.
2. It's coverage, it addresses every single topic concerning modern day cloud ready SharePoint applications. This includes O365 coverage, SharePoint on-premises coverage, and coverage around most aspects of Azure.
3. Practicality of the choice of their chapters and examples. I was honestly a bit wary of 3 Microsoft guys writing this book - because they tell the story from the inside, the personality of their books end up being the personality of a whitepaper. This book is not like that. They have choosen to not regurgitate MSDN, but instead show practical examples such as 'creating a training application using SharePoint online', or 'using twitter in SharePoint solutions', or 'Connecting linked in to SharePoint profile data'. Holy Moly - this is what my customers ask me to do all the time, this is the guidance I need .. NOT .. that "SPSite is a SharePoint site" sorta documentation that MSDN is full of (Sorry MSDN).
4. Not ignoring security, I love Chapter 11 for this. Though, I wish they had covered OAuth a bit as well, but they did cover Azure ACS, which has OAuth integration.
5. It's thickness, I *DISLIKE* overly thick books that are full of paper and no useful material. This book, is not thick! You can actually read it like a story book and enjoy reading it as you go through it.

I like this book, I really think you should get on top of cloud ready SharePoint apps (and other cloud ready things).

Exceptional Kick Start and Resource Dec 2 2011
By Todd Baginski - Published on
Format: Paperback
Whether you are new to cloud development, or have worked with it already, this book is a great one to have on your shelf. The authors walk you through fundamental patterns associated with SharePoint and cloud development and use some really nice examples to do so. The examples are easy to understand, interesting, and illustrate several components and integration points you may not have even imagined are possible with SharePoint and the cloud. One thing you will find especially handy is the time the authors took to explain how to use the management and configuration tools associated with the various technologies. So many times developer focused books are so laden with code that these items are missed, that's not the case with this one. The chapter that focuses on the AppFabric Access Control Service is one that shouldn't be missed. The concepts it describes will become commonplace for developers very soon.
Good Book Nov. 26 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In the technical support field, we are in need of a lot of reference materials to meet all needs. This book is a great source of information in an area I was not too familiar with.
