I have worked with SharePoint for years both as a developer and architect, so you can trust me when I say I know how complex this product has become. To expect a book to in detail cover all possible corners of the API is simply silly -it wouldnt be done until next version of the product was out...
The book has a good balance between describing the wealth of new features and supplying code samples for the features in question. Extra details are found in the downloadable code samples. This is what I expect; I really find it annoying if I have to read page after page of HTML or boiler plate code. What I pay for are words from the experts, not a ton of code samples.
This book is to the point and very usable for both developers on all levels and architects planning how to build sites on this new platform.
This book is a must have no matter where you sit regarding experience. If you are a Novice or Expert, there is a TON of great information (contrary to a previous post)and "Code Examples". Every SharePoint book that I have purchased has several Chapters that are middle of the road with a few that hit the mark. However, this book seemed to stay on track and serve up the content to help our SP dev team make the decisions required for a Vnext product. We are in the process of upgrading all of our SharePoint code from 2007 to 2010 in which this book was a key read in order to plan and explore the plethora of new features and functionalities in which dovetail with the current suite of features added to 2010.
Personally - this book is a Must Have hands down.
Great Job to the Authors!
This is not an introductory book, but it is somewhat of a survey course for developers not familiar with SharePoint 2010. I feel that this book is an excellent overview of available technologies which expose a professional developer to all of the tools available in the SharePoint 2010 development toolbox. Of paramount importance for any professional is the knowledge of an available functionality or API. With this knowledge in hand, any developer can search the web for complete samples, but without this information a developer is frequently reinventing existing capabilities.
If you are a SharePoint Developer, regardless of your level or experience with 2007 or 2010, you should read through this book in order to understand your dizzying array of solution approaches.
Some of the previous comments complain about the lack of complete code samples (some of which are available as downloads from [...]) and in a few places a lack of sufficient depth. While it is true that some areas (workflow for example) are deeper or more complete than others (BCS for example) that does not mean that the less fleshed out areas (BCS for example) are without merit or value. What really exists is an opportunity for each of these areas to be explored in their own book.
That said, it still has good info in it. It is kind of a hybrid between, development, administration, and user book. It introduces a lot of topics that I normally would not look at, for example Records Management.
The code is mostly in solution format, which is a plus, but it is a little confusing to use. It can be used, it just wasn't organized that well.
All in all I would say buy this book if you are looking for a variety of SharePoint topics, but not as your primary development book. I would recommend looking through the table of contents first.
Second of all, any books written by Reza Alirezaei is must for any SharePoint Architect. He is an excellent writer, teacher, and wonderful person to reach out to if you stuck on anything he has written.
I been working with SharePoint 2010 since pre-public beta (when it was called Office 14) and reading this book, not only reaffirm the basics but explains some of very complex subjects - Search, InfoPath Forms, Workflow, and BI. I have gone through each word of the Electronic Forms and Workflow chapter written by Reza and I would simply buy this book for those chapters. Workflow chapter will take you through the brilliant workflow development lifecylcle from Visio 2010 to SPD 2010 to VS 2010. Electronic forms chapter will show two flavors of the forms - List Forms and InfoPath Form Templates. BI Chapter will take you through the step by step guide to build the BI Center using the Excel Services, SSRS, and Performance Point Servies Integration.
Apart from these content specific chapters, first four chapters written by Tom is must for any developers who has worked with SharePoint 2007. It describes what's new in SharePoint 2010, IT Pro Enhancements, and Developer Enhancements. Chapter 4 is real gem. If you ever want to know the internals of some of the UI features like master pages, themes, ribbon, status bar, dialog boxes then you must read this chapter. Believe me, as a SharePoint developer, one of the first thing you would do is customize these components.
SharePoint is a huge subject and no one book would work as a complete reference. Use this book for more decision making and high level architectural reference along with other entry level books. Hope this helps.
