    • 14 Comments
    To help celebrate the Visual Studio 2013 Virtual Launch , we’re happy to share another free ebook: .NET Technology Guide for Business Applications , by Cesar de la Torre and David Carmona! Download the ebook (6.02 MB PDF) here . Here’s a little bit about the guide: 1. Key takeaways Select your architecture approaches and development technology based on your specific application’s priorities and requirements. A single architecture and approach won’t work for every type of application. The Microsoft development stack and .NET are extremely flexible and offer many possibilities, but it’s essential that you choose specific approaches and technologies based on the kind of application—or even subsystem—you build.

    Review: Software Requirements, Third Edition

    • 1 Comments
    Software Requirements, Third Edition By Karl Wiegers and Joy Beatty Published by Microsoft Press, 2013 Review by Robert L. Glass Subsequent editions of computing books trouble me. I’m never quite sure whether I ought to be reviewing what’s new about the book, or the whole book, original parts and new parts together. And, to make that issue more complicated, I'm never quite sure what it is that’s new about the book, so I’m normally condemned to reviewing the whole thing. And, to be honest, I suppose I’m a little bit jealous. None of MY books has ever made it to a third edition! But that dilemma is eased somewhat with this book. It starts right out by explaining what’s new in its subject field since the previous edition. That’s slightly different...

    From the author: Exchange Server 2013 Pocket Consultant–Configuration & Clients

    • 1 Comments
      I’m William Stanek ( www.williamstanek.com ) and I’m blogging today to introduce you to Exchange Server 2013 Pocket Consultant: Configuration & Clients , my 378-page guide to Microsoft Exchange Server 2013. For this book, I decided to do something radically different than I’ve done in the past. I decided to laser focus the book on core configuration tasks and this allowed me to do something I’ve never been able to do before. It allowed me to wrap my arms around Exchange Online, Exchange hybrid, and Exchange Server and discuss them all. Because a discussion of Exchange Online would not be complete without a discussion of Office 365 and Windows Azure, Office 365 and Windows Azure are also explored, where appropriate, throughout the book. Embracing Exchange Online, Exchange hybrid,...
