My Writings

I have written three books so far. Those are listed on the left of this page.

I have also written several articles and various blog posts on DotNetSlackers.com. Those can be found by doing a quick Google search!

For quite a while I used to maintain my blog on GeeksWithBlogs.net. I am starting to move that blog to here.

I write books!
I like most started writing with my first blog. This quickly turned into paid articles. And from there I was invited to write a book about all the stuff I had written about in my blogs and articles. Here are the three books I have written so far:

ASP.NET MVC 2 Cookbook

A month or two after starting my first book this new framework from Microsoft came out - ASP.NET MVC. As I had already started writing my book, contract in hand, I had to complete it using the MVP pattern in ASP.NET. But I loved the concept of simplicity of MVC and followed as closely as I could. When my first book was done I started seeking another book gig and got the opportunity to write a cookbook with Packt Publishing. This book was great fun to write. I think I might do another one of these!


ASP.NET 3.5 Social Networking

My first book was around ASP.NET 3.5 and the notion of social networking. More important these were my thoughts on how to build a social application. A lot has changed since these early days!


ASP.NET 4 Social Networking

This is the rewrite of my first book. I didn't have nearly as much to do with this book as I did my first project. A couple fella's from the book company did the majority of the work and showed me what they did when they were done. Read the comments on this one! :)
