A Fast Intro to .NET
Sorting out the story from Redmond
- By Gerry O'Brien
Unlike most technologies that come from Redmond, .NET wasn’t clearly
defined. Nigel meets the challenge head on and takes the reader through
eleven chapters in an attempt to explain .NET.
Through the use of text, images code samples, he helps the reader understand
the topic a little better. He does an excellent job of explaining each
of the various products, helping the reader understand what role the product
plays in the .NET world as well as providing an understanding of how it
integrates with other .NET products or technologies
At only 206 pages—index included—the book is a lightweight
for certain on page size but lives up to its title as a Jumpstart. For
any IT professional, developer or Network Administrator, the book will
provide you with a good understanding of what .NET is. If you’re
not sure whether you need .NET, this book will provide the answers to
help guide your decision.
