Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1.0

I finished reading Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1.0 this past weekend. Keyvan Nayyeri and Simone Chiaretta did a great job with this book. It should be simple enough that a pure beginner will be able to get up and running yet it contains enough depth...


Cleaning Off My Bookshelf

I have four (3-shelf) bookshelves in my home office that are on the verge of overflowing with books. There is an entire bookshelf just for books that I have not read yet, but need to. Apparently I'm something of a book nut. I hadn't really noticed...


Professional Community Server Themes

I had the pleasure of working on a great project earlier this year with two very talented co-workers: Wyatt Preul and Ben Tiedt. I served as the Technical Editor for their new Wrox book, Professional Community Server Themes. Between the awesome...


Book Review: Designing with Web Standards

As a web application developer I tend to spend most my time writing code to make web sites do stuff. I spend a lot of time working with databases and various n-tier layers except for one. I choose to keep my nose (as much as possible) out of the...


Book Review: The Non-Designers Web Book

Unfortunately I didn't like The Non-Designer's Web Book by Robin Williams and John Tollett as much as I liked the last book that I reviewed. It's not that it is a bad book in any way, it's just that it wasn't what I expected. Based on the title...

Want some alone time with one of the brightest new technology minds?

No, not me, silly! Seth Godin is offering a conference-call Q&A session on Friday, September 8th that will last "all day" if necessary. Rather than paying a fee to attend, he is asking that you buy 11 copies of his new book, small is the new...


The Must Read Book of the Holidays - Windows Developer Power Tools

No offense to Phil Haack, but his timing might be a bit off. With the book not being published until November it probably cannot be the summer's must read book - but it definitely will be the Must Read Book of the holiday season! In fact, at over...


An early review of Search Engine Optimization An Hour a Day

Last week I picked up a copy of Search Engine Optimization: An Hour a Day by Jennifer Grappone and Gradiva Couzin. I have a slight interest in SEO, however I try not to get drawn into it too much because it can really eat up your time and I prefer...
