Reviewer Comments

This book is unique in that introduces developers to both .NET and the software development cycle at the same time. The opening chapters contain a concise introduction to .NET and software engineering. The rest of the book walks you through the development of a complete .NET application that includes a Photo Editor and an Online Photo Shop. I found the discussion on using plug-ins with your .NET application to be very interesting. This book would be an excellent tool for individuals wanting to learn about the process of software development or .NET.
