Default How is the experience building with this book and C#?

I have a pretty good foundation of ASP.net, C#, and sql server. I have been debating this book and the original my Marco Bellinaso. This one offers some newer things that would be interesting but the original seems like it would be easier to work from.

I want to build the app using C#(even though the book is in VB) and have read a lot of things about this book that make me leery. For example, since I have read a couple times that there was vb code in the C# version of the download I'm assuming some of these things have been addressed but I'm still not sure if I want to do it.

If someone has read this book and built the app in C# can they please share their experience. Or, if someone has worked from the original and this one can they share some insight. I want to have as good of an experience as possible and am concerned about getting frustrated with this book.

Thanks.

Frankly, my suggestion is to first download the application and try to run it. Poke around the source code and see what happens. I'm sure you'll be able to form an opinion pretty quickly that way.

Default My 2 cents on with edition...

KW,

Frankly, having read the 2.0 version from MB. I'm finding that one MUCH easier to work from. I was very excited to get the updated version, but I'm finding that the I'm having a tough time figuring out where the code snippets go (oh, in x folder, under x.vb... too bad it didn't say that in the book, I have to look for it in the source code). I'm a VB developer, and was glad to see a book in VB, but honestly, I had an easier go translating the 2.0 book to VB than I've had with the 3.5 book.

I was considering replacing the 2.0 book with the 3.5, but I think I'll keep the 2.0 book around.

Thanks for your opinion. I bought this book and returned it after glancing through it. I use C# and decided I didn't want to deal with translating.

I also found it funny that somewhere, I think on amazon, there is a comment about this being the most discussed book in the wrox forums. It made it sound like a good thing. But it could be because it is very popular and/or because there are a lot of problems with it

I know that the last version of the book was phenominal, and it got a lot of GREAT press. But I'm not seeing alot of good being said about the book in the forums for this version.

I had the same problem so I spent a considerable amount of time figuring it out, I wrote 2 blog articles filling in these gaps, you can find them at:

Hope that helps.
