Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1 is now available as a DRM-free PDF ebook

Since the current version of ASP.NET MVC is version 3 you might wonder why I am still promoting my Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1.0 book. The reason is that since a few week it is also available as DRM-free eBook at a discounted price directly from the Wrox site (together with many other books from Wrox). For the moment you have to enter the code FROST to get a 35% reduction on the standard price, but soon the prices on the site will be updated to reflect the reduced price. After you buy the MVC 1.0 book, you might also want to buy...

What’s new in ASP.NET MVC 2 Wrox Blox available for purchase

My latest book, the What’s new in ASP.NET MVC 2 Wrox Blox, is now available for purchase from the Wrox store at the cost of US $6.99. For those who are not familiar with them, Wrox Blox are short and concise ebooks that cover very specific topics. Ranging from 30 to 70-80 pages, they are a very good option in case you need to solve a specific problem, or learn a specific technology, but you don’t to buy a whole book only when you would read a chapter or two. And this ebook is exactly like that:...

Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1.0 available on Amazon

It's been a long journey, that started more than one year ago: today our Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1.0 book is available for purchase on Amazon US. Probably some of you, the ones which pre-ordered the book, will be receiving it soon. And in a few days (probably next week), the book will be officially available also on Amazon UK (still in pre-sale now) and later this month also on physical bookstores. If you want to have a look at what's inside the book, you can download the free chapters we made available last month, or you can just...

Free Chapter of Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1.0 – Testing ASP.NET MVC Applications

It is with an unquantifiable amount of pleasure that I can announce that we have just released a free public preview chapter of our Beginning ASP.NET MVC v1.0. The name of the chapter is “Chapter 9 – Testing ASP.NET MVC Applications”. It explains how to test controllers, how to use mocking to test interactions with the Http runtime, how to refactor an application to make it testable, and also shows some TDD in action. Also, when you read it, remember that the intended audience is developers that are new to ASP.NET MVC and most likely also...

New Features in ASP.NET 3.5 SP1

ASP.NET 3.5 SP1 has been released a few months ago and everybody (including me) talks only about Entity Framework, Dynamic Data and Routing. But there is more. But Sir Wally came to help and wrote a book (actually a Wrox Blox) about the New Features in ASP.NET 3.5 Service Pack 1, which are more than just EF, DynData and Routing: there are new features also on the Ajax side, ADO.NET Data services and caching. So, what are you waiting for, it's only US $6.99, go and buy yourself a copy of this eBook: New Features in ASP.NET 3.5 Service Pack 1 ASP.NET, Wrox,...

The book writing process

As some of you might already know, in July I started writing a book for Wrox. It was a completely new experience for me, and I’ve to thank Keyvan and the guys at Wrox for helping me in understanding the book writing process. During these months I received lots of question on this process from people that never wrote a book, but also from people that wrote a book in Italy: all asking how it is to write a book and how much I’m paid for the book. So here I’m, writing a blog post to answer all...

Look Ma, I'm on a book cover

Well, not yet, but hopefully soon. Which book cover am I talking about? It’s book I’m writing together with Keyvan, about ASP.NET MVC, for Wrox. The book title will be “Beginning ASP.NET MVC”. You way wonder why a book about a technology that is not even in beta and about which there are already six books. The reason is simple: all the six books are “pro” books, targeted at experienced developers, that are already trying out the early bits, but that want to know more. We both are writing two introductory series on ASP.NET MVC on two famous .NET...
