ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks and Tips is
the name of a special book from Wrox. I say "special" because Wrox
has not published many books similar to this one.
This advanced book (compared with other Wrox books) is written
for professional .NET developers so readers should have a good background in
.NET (especially ASP.NET 1.x and 2.0 plus C# language) to get the best result
from reading this book.
From the book's name you may take that this book is useful
for Microsoft MVPs, but each and every professional .NET developer can read and
MVP Hacks and Tips is written by
seven Microsoft MVPs: David Yack, Jose Mayo, Scott Hanselman, Fredrik Normén,
Dan Wahlin, J. Ambrose Little and Jonathan D. Goodyear and Wrox's famous name,
Jim Minatel, is its Acquisitions Editor.
The book is short enough to not be boring. The primary
purpose of this book is to collect a great collection of hacks and tips that
are worth knowing for every developer. All of us have our own hacks, but
rarely make them public; this book wants to share the personal hacks of seven
MVPs with others.
The book consists of descriptions about many hacks and tips,
ASP.NET and some other .NET related stuff. Some hacks are inspired from
external resources, such as blogs and articles. The authors tried to give a
good history and some ASP.NET 1.x equivalents of their hacks.
Personally, I highly recommend it for everyone who wants to
have more information about ASP.NET. Just do not forget to first have enough skills
in .NET 2.0 before reading this book. To get these skills you can read other
great Wrox books, Professional ASP.NET 2.0 and Professional C# 2005.
