We have two Microsoft patterns & practices titles available for review this week: Developer's Guide to Microsoft® Enterprise Library, Visual Basic® Edition and Developer's Guide to Microsoft® Enterprise Library, C# Edition. Written by the experts on the Microsoft patterns & practices developer evangelist team, these two books are designed for software development specialists, to demonstrate best practices for using the Enterprise Library to save time and dramatically increase productivity.
"Enterprise applications developers need to build more decoupled applications to meet today's business and application architecture requirements," says lead author Alex Homer. "With the Enterprise Library, developers can easily build applications that abstract the mechanisms for crosscutting concerns; thereby reducing development time and cost, and reducing the total cost of ownership of their applications."
Adds Scott Guthrie, the much-followed Microsoft corporate vice president of the Microsoft .NET Developer Platform group, "Each of these books will make your life as an enterprise developer a whole lot easier."
