Sebastopol, CA—Get the definitive guide to programming with ASP.NET 4 technologies: Programming Microsoft® ASP.NET 4 (Microsoft Press, $59.99 USD). Web development expert Dino Esposito (@despos) provides essential, architectural-level guidance, along with the in-depth technical insights designed to take you—and your solutions—to the next level.

"For ASP.NET developers this is a critical time, with ASP.NET MVC gaining ground and Web Forms remaining mostly still in terms of evolution," says Esposito. "This book demonstrates that Web Forms is still perfectly usable if used properly and effectively. This book represents the state-of-the-art for Web Forms programming and covers everything a Web Forms developer needs to know. There's a lot more he or she can do and will be asked to do in a real world project, but with the skills gained from the book, he or she will surely be up to the task. It's like the story about being given a fish versus being taught to fish. Having the skill is always the better choice."

Completely reengineered for ASP.NET 4, Programming Microsoft® ASP.NET 4 deftly illuminates the core architecture and programming features of ASP.NET 4 in a single, pragmatic volume. The book covers Dynamic Data, AJAX, Microsoft Silverlight®, ASP.NET MVC, Web forms, LINQ, and security strategies—and features extensive code samples in Microsoft Visual C® 2010.
