Who Should Read This Book?
This is not a book for novice developers and doesn’t provide a step-by-step guide on how to design and code Web pages. So the book is not appropriate if you have only a faint idea about ASP.NET and expect the book to get you started with it quickly and effectively. Once you have grabbed hold of ASP.NET basic tasks and features and need to consolidate them, you enter the realm of this book.
You won’t find screen shots here illustrating Microsoft Visual Studio wizards, nor any mention of options to select or unselect to get a certain behavior from your code. Of course, this doesn’t mean that I hate Visual Studio or that I’m not recommending Visual Studio for developing ASP.NET applications. Visual Studio is a great tool to use to write ASP.NET applications but, judged from an ASP.NET perspective, it is only a tool. This book, instead, is all about the ASP.NET core technology.
I do recommend this book to developers who have knowledge of the basic steps required to build simple ASP.NET pages and easily manage the fundamentals of Web development. This book is not a collection of recipes for cooking good (or just functional) ASP.NET code. This book begins where recipes end. It explains to you the how-it-works, what-you-can-do, and why-you-should-or-should-not aspects of ASP.NET. Beginners need not apply, even though this book is a useful and persistent reference to keep on the desk.
