Steven Sanderson has seen the ASP.NET MVC framework mature from the start, so his experience, combined with comprehensive coverage of all its features, including those in the official MVC development toolkit, offers the clearest understanding of how this exciting framework could improve your coding efficiency—and you'll gain invaluable awareness of security, deployment, and interoperability challenges. The ASP.NET MVC Framework is the evolution of Microsoft's ASP.NET web platform. It introduced a radical high–productivity programming model that promotes cleaner code architecture, test–driven development, and powerful extensibility, combined with all the benefits of ASP.NET 3.5. An integral benefit of this book is that the core Model–View–Controller architectural concepts are not simply explained or discussed in isolation, but demonstrated in action. You'll work through an extended tutorial to create a working e–commerce web application that combines ASP.NET MVC with the latest C# 3.0 language features and unit–testing best practices. By gaining this invaluable, practical experience, you can discover MVCs strengths and weaknesses for yourself—and put your best learned theory into practice.
Delve inside the core SQL Server engine--and put that knowledge to work--with guidance from a team of well-known internals experts. Whether database developer, architect, or administrator, you'll gain the deep knowledge you need to exploit key architectural changes--and capture the product's full potential. Discover how SQL Server works behind the scenes, including: What happens internally when SQL Server builds, expands, shrinks, and moves databases How to use event tracking--from triggers to the Extended Events Engine Why the right indexes can drastically reduce your query execution time How to transcend normal row-size limits with new storage capabilities How the Query Optimizer operates Multiple techniques for troubleshooting problematic query plans When to force SQL Server to reuse a cached query plan--or create a new one What SQL Server checks internally when running DBCC How to choose among five isolation levels and two concurrency models when working with multiple concurrent users

The only complete, pragmatic guide to the advanced CLR debugging techniques developers need to find and fix the toughest .NET software bugs. • •By Mario Hewardt, co-author of the best-selling, widely-praised Advanced Windows Debugging.. •Shows how to use .NET's powerful native CLR debugging tools to track down challenging bugs far more quickly. •Includes the best coverage of .NET memory debugging available anywhere. •Illuminates the debugging implications of the latest .NET 4.0 runtime changes. Advanced .NET Debugging is the definitive guide to tracking down the most complex and challenging bugs in today's .NET application code. Authored by Mario Hewardt, co-author of the widely-praised Advanced Windows Debugging this is the only book to focus entirely on .NET's immensely powerful native debuggers: the Debugging Tools for Windows, including WinDBG and SoS. Using this book, experienced .NET programmers will be able to analyze problematic code and identify the root causes of problems far more quickly than they ever could with visual tools. Hewardt begins by introducing the essential concepts developers must master in order to debug code with the native debuggers, including the tools available, the core fundamentals of the .NET CLR runtime, and essential debugging tasks. Next, he turns to sophisticated debugging techniques, teaching through real-world examples that demonstrate a broad spectrum of common C# programming errors. Hewardt thoroughly covers postmortem debugging without access to the physical machine; PowerDBG and other .NET debugging 'power tools'; and, finally, the debugging implications of the brandnew .NET CLR 4.0.
