Earlier this year, I co-authored the book Real World .NET, C#, and Silverlight, along with 14 other Microsoft MVPs. Although the printed edition won’t be available for a few weeks, I came home last night to find a box containing 5 copies sitting on my front porch. I’m very excited to see my name listed as a book author for the first time. I wrote Chapter 1, which covers ASP.NET 4 and jQuery. Most of my chapter covers the use of ASP.NET MVC. The book is published by Wrox.


The other authors and the topic they covered are
