Packt Publishing released a new title named, Visual Studio 2013 and .NET 4.5 Expert Cookbook authored by Abhishek Sur. I received a free copy of this book from the author and agreed to read the book and write the review.
As the title says, this book turned out to be a nice and detailed collection of insights on various powerful capabilities of Visual Studio 2013 and .NET 4.5. The approach of the book made it very easy to follow, learn as it takes you through the insides of each topic with – what, why, how and so on. This book is written in the form of recipes with step-by-step guide on every topic and they are really easy to understand and to deal with complex software problems.
This book starts with few handy tips of debugging, then covers WCF 4.5, tips on Windows Phone 8, Working with Team Foundation Server etc. This book also covers Testing application using Visual Studio, MEF, T4 templates and ends with some nice touch up on Azure.
