Abhishek Sur, Microsoft MVP and one of my close Community friend recently published a book on “Visual Studio 2012 and .Net 4.5 Expert Development Cookbook”. In this blog post I am going to speak about my experience in reading this book. This book focuses on commonly asked questions related to the new features that are introduced in .Net Framework 4.5, Visual Studio 2012 IDE, .Net Assemblies, Memory Management, ASP.net 4.5 enhancements, Async Programming, Windows Presentation Foundation and Windows Store application development. This book will be very useful for any developer who focuses to keep up-to date on the new technology stuffs that are been released by Microsoft.    [more]
