Default I see that you have a new book out

http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-ASP-....5+in+c+and+vb

So with that being the case, I was wondering does the new book create the same app again like the last two books with a social media music review application or does it create something new and different, fresh and exciting? Because if does create something new, fresh and exciting like maybe like an online Christmas candy E-Commerce store, then I will be the first to buy it ASAP. I mean if you got into some JSON with with some web workers or some web sockets and some SignalR stuff with maybe some Bootstrap, Angular JS and some WCF along with a smattering of MVC that would be great. Or maybe some Web API with Kendo UI would be even nicer. But yeah if the code builds a different kind of app different from the last two books, I would like to look it over and get started on it.

It's building the same application again using ASP.NET Web Forms.

The book is called Beginning ASP.NET 4.5.1, not "All-round experienced Web Pro in two days" ;-)

Default The guy does have a point.

It would be nice if we could see just a little more advanced level stuff like WCF and MVC in books like yours that take it from a beginners level. They are moving in that direction here at work and an intro book like yours with that kind of information with a nice intro into those technologies would be very nice.

WCF is discussed in the context of light-weight AJAX calls from the browser to the server. WCF is a huge topic on its own, so this book only touches on the basics.

MVC is not discussed, as this is a book about Web Forms.

Cheers,

Imar
