TechEd 2010 Twitter Book Give Away
If you’re going to TechEd North America this year, Sams Publishing will be giving away 9 advanced reader copies. In order to win a copy, be sure to follow the InformIT Twitter account and the #TechEd hash tag. Sporadically throughout the day a tweet will be sent out stating that the first person who comes to the booth and mentions my book will get a copy. The give away will probably occur over multiple days, so be sure to keep an eye on Twitter. Technorati Tags: Books,Sams Teach Yourself C# 2010 ......

Sams Teach Yourself Visual C# 2010 in 24 Hours
I am very happy to announce that the core content for my upcoming Sams Teach Yourself Visual C# 2010 in 24 Hours book is done! I still need to incorporate comments from Claudio and Eric (my technical editors) and then incorporate edits from the Sams editors, but all of the really hard work is now done. Even though I knew before starting that it would not be easy I don’t think I was really prepared for just how difficult it is to actually write a book. I started actually writing around mid-July 2009, ......

Sams Teach Yourself Visual C# 2010 in 24 Hours
I have previously mentioned that I’m working on the upcoming Sams Teach Yourself Visual C# 2010 in 24 Hours book. Things are progressing nicely, if a bit slower than I’d prefer. I have the draft for the cover art, which looks really good. I’m also very pleased to announce my technical editors – Claudio Lasaala and Eric Lippert. Claudio is a Senior Developer at EPS Software Corp. He has presented several lectures at Microsoft events such as PDC and various other Microsoft seminars, as well as several ......

Sams Teach Yourself C# 2010 in 24 Hours
I’m sure most of you are familiar with the Sams Teach Yourself books, at least in passing if not in owning one. I am very excited to announce that I will be joining the Sams Publishing authoring team for their upcoming Teach Yourself C# 2010 in 24 Hours book. This new edition will be quite a bit different from the previous editions since it will be much more language-focused and will take a more holistic view of the language. If you have already looked at one of the earlier editions and decided that ......

Book Review: ASP.NET Data Presentation Controls Essentials
If you are an ASP.NET developer or want to become one, there are numerous books available that talk about the ASP.NET framework and/or how to build web sites using ASP.NET.

Free Microsoft Press E-Books Offer?
I've been seeing several people blogging about the free Microsoft Press E-Book offer. All you need to do is register and you get access to 3 e-books from Microsoft Press that you can download in PDF format. If you pay close attention to the details for each book, you will notice that these aren't full copies of the books. The only one that appears to be a full copy, based on the listed chapters and the actual table of contents in the PDF, is Introducing Microsoft LINQ. The other two e-books only ......

Programming for the masses
Over the last year or so I have noticed a disturbing trend brought about by the idea of "brining programming to the masses". Last April, according to Microsoft, there was a "growing community of 18 million recreational and hobbyist developers." Even IBM was getting in to the mix, with a project called QEDwiki. I am a professional developer and have been a developer for over 14 years. I have a B.S. degree in Computer Science, did an internship at Martin Marietta (now Lockheed Martin) while in school, ......

WPFwiki
The guys over at Xceed, makers of the powerful yet free Xceed DataGrid for WPF have just launched the WPFwiki. The wiki was created to be a community resource for developers working with Windows Presentation Foundation. Even though the site was just launched, the idea started in 2003 when the WPF DataGrid was just starting to be developed. As the developers encountered problems and questions that they felt would be of common interest, it was recorded in a database along with the answer. In March ......
