Beginning ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB is Ready!

If you're following me on Twitter, this is old news. But if you don't, then I am happy to announce that I finished writing my latest book for Wrox: Beginning ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB.

As always, it took me much more time than anticipated, but I am very happy with the result. Although it's an update to the previous version targeting ASP.NET 3.5, I have been able to put a lot of new stuff in this book. Most notably are a chapter on jQuery and one on the ADO.NET Entity Framework (replacing the chapter on Linq to SQL) but I have also introduced many of the smaller and bigger changes in the ASP.NET 4 Framework and in Visual Web Developer 2010 Express edition.

While I was in Seattle late February for the Microsoft MVP Summit, I made some final, small changes to the manuscript and then submitted everything to the publisher. Shortly after that, the book went to the printer. Woohoo!

The book should be available in stores and on Amazon in early April. I really can't wait to get hold of a copy myself after all the work I have put in it. Exciting times.....
