Buckle up beginners, and say OOPs

This book moves too fast for beginners in Object Oriented Programming. If you're going to pop right into OOP, get a slower paced book to start with, and then move onto this. Laura Lemay is an awesome author (Sams PERL in 21) and Rogers puts a nice monkey humor twist on it

A Must Read For VB Experts

The book does not rehash microsoft documentation; like installing beta 2, system requirements, syntax, ...etc. You can get all of that from microsoft site. Instead, the book shows why and when .NET should be considered as a technology given the problem at hand. It goes deep in the framework of .NET and compares its features with the COM technology showing the potential downside of using COM and how .NET goes around those pitfalls.
The book is for experienced VB developers who are considering the .NET world. I love the book, it is written with a sense of humor that wont bore you. Among all the books I reviewed on the subject This one is the best (even better than the wrox ones).

A developer must have..

The reader, Frank Carver (Ipswich, Suffolk United Kingdom), could not be more clueless... I've been practicing Scrum for over a year and am a certified ScrumMaster, and one of the major strengths i see is the customer's ability to drive the project (which includes being involved throughout the sprint frank). I appreciate the fact that Scrum is a management wrapper, allowing me to inject whatever engineering processes are appropriate from project to project
