Want a free copy of Visual Studio 2012 And .NET Expert Development Cookbook

  • submit to reddit

Visual Studio 2012 and .NET 4.5 Expert Development cookbook is your ready-made reference to all the problems we face while working with Visual Studio and .NET 4.5. It gives you explicit references to some of the interesting topics that as a developer you always wanted to master or want to collect and store securely so that it is available to you just the time when needed. It has been my honor to put up such important things into one book and make you understand development better. 

To give you some instances : 

  • Internals of .NET Memory Management and Garbage Collection Techniques.
  • Solution to 10 common mistakes made by developers while writing code
  • Securing code from reverse engineering using Obfuscation
  • Writing Multi-threaded application more quickly and easily.
  • Working with Performance boosters in ASP.NET Web Applications. 
  • HTML5 and CSS3 
  • Write enhanced application in MVVM model.
  • Building Applications using WinJS and XAML in Windows 8
  • Enable Push notification to update Tiles, Toast, Batch notifications of your Windows 8 Applications
  • And many more like this ... 
I am overwhelmed to receive great responses for my articles on "Internals of .NET"  on my blog but I wrote this book in such a way so that you can take most out of the under the hood items of Language and CLR and use those skills while writing or architecting your own application.  This is reference book only for developers and experts with more emphasis given on practicals rather than the theory.  To know more about the book you can go to the publisher site using this link . Moreover, I remember of putting up a draft about the book as well on my blog  which you can try for more knowledge.
