Book Review: Professional Enterprise .NET – Wrox

Professional Enterprise .NET Cover

Book Title: Professional Enterprise .NET
Authors: Jon Arking and Scott Millet
Publisher: Wrox

I must say one of the best book I have read on Enterprise Design and Code. The author did very well in explaining how to write flexible, extensible code. If you are a mid level .NET developer and you are curious enough to think about more flexible, testable and extensible applications, you will definitely love this book.

This book covers some of the very exciting topics such as Separation of Concerns, Flexibility, Reusability, Unit Testing, Test Driven Development, Inversion of Control, Domain-Driven, Data access layer, Model-View Presenter, Model-View-Controller. Although it may sounds dry but the author did a great job in keeping me stick to the book. After so many time, this was the book which kept me reading it until i finished it.

The book started with the discussion on What is Enterprise Architecture and Development? Then with an example of Mortgage Loan sample application, the author have applied above mention topics and concepts.

You can also download code of this book from codeplex site.

All in all, I think that it’s worth investing time and money on this book and it’s really a comprehensive guide to the latest enterprise development patterns and methodologies that will make your code cleaner and maintainable.
