||.NET Development Using the Compiler API|
This is the first book to describe the recent significant changes to the .NET compilation process and demonstrate how .NET developers can use the new Compiler API to create compelling applications. As an open source compiler, the Compiler API now makes its code available for anyone to use. In this book, you'll get a concise, focused view of this tremendous resource for developers, who can now use any part of the platform implementation to their advantage in analyzing applications, improving code generation, and providing enforceable patterns, all under an OSS model.
You will learn how to analyze your code for defects in a fast, clean manner never available before. You'll work with solutions and projects to provide automatic refactoring, and you'll discover how you can generate code dynamically to provide application implementations at runtime
Having the Compiler API available opens a number of doors for .NET developers that were either simply not there before, or difficult to achieve. However, the API is vast, and this concise book provides a valuable roadmap to this new development environment.

||Beginning SOLID Principles and Design Patterns for ASP.NET Developers|
This book teaches you all the essential knowledge required to learn and apply time-proven SOLID principles of object-oriented design and important design patterns in ASP.NET 5 applications. You will learn to write server-side as well as client-side code that makes use of proven practices and patterns.
SOLID is an acronym used to describe five basic principles of good object-oriented design - Single Responsibility, Open/Closed, Liskov Substitution, Interface Segregation and Dependency Inversion. This book covers all five principles and illustrates how they can be used in ASP.NET 5 applications.
Design Patterns are time proven solutions to commonly occurring software design problems. The most well-known catalog of design patterns comes from Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson and John Vlissides, the so-called GoF patterns (Gang of Four patterns). This book contains detailed descriptions of how to apply Creational, Structural and Behavioral GoF design patterns along with some Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture.
||ASP.NET jQuery Cookbook, 2nd Edition|
ASP.NET jQuery Cookbook explores the wide range of utilities that the jQuery library provides. It teaches you the nitty-gritty of plugging in these features in ASP.NET web applications. It covers every aspect of interfacing the library, right from downloading and including jQuery on web pages to selecting controls, handling events, and creating animations. This book also walks you through DOM traversal and manipulation in ASP.NET and then through visual effects and graphics in ASP.NET sites. It explores advanced features such as posting AJAX requests and writing plugins. It will provide you with all the information you need to use this library confidently with ASP.NET.
||Extending SSIS with .NET Scripting|
Extending SSIS with .NET Scripting is a timeless and comprehensive scripting toolkit for SQL Server Integration Services to solve a wide array of everyday problems that SSIS developers encounter. The detailed explanation of the Script Task and Script Component foundations helps you develop your own scripting solutions, but this book also shows a broad arsenal of readymade and well-documented scripting solutions for common problems. All examples are in both C# and VB.NET and work for all current versions of SSIS.
SSIS is one of the leading ETL, Data Consolidation, and Data Transformation tools in today's market. SSIS is used by ETL Developers, DBAs and Data Analysts to transform data as required for different ETL processes. There are many built-in components and tasks to help developers to perform actions. For example, there are tasks for sending and receiving files through FTP, sending an email, and for accessing a wide range of database management systems. Yet there are times when developers require a task or component that does not exist and it would make their life much easier if they could create that task or component, and that is what this book it is about. It shows how to write .NET scripts and use the powerful Microsoft .NET library to implement new functionality as needed.
||ASP.NET MVC 5 with Bootstrap and Knockout.js|
Author Jamie Munro introduces these and other related technologies by having you work with sophisticated web forms. At the end of the book, experienced and aspiring web developers alike will learn how to build a complete shopping cart that demonstrates how these technologies interact with each other in a sleek, dynamic, and responsive web application.
||Machine Learning Projects for .NET Developers|
Machine Learning Projects for .NET Developers shows you how to build smarter .NET applications that learn from data, using simple algorithms and techniques that can be applied to a wide range of real-world problems. You'll code each project in the familiar setting of Visual Studio, while the machine learning logic uses F#, a language ideally suited to machine learning applications in .NET. If you're new to F#, this book will give you everything you need to get started. If you're already familiar with F#, this is your chance to put the language into action in an exciting new context.
Along the way, you'll learn fundamental ideas that can be applied in all kinds of real-world contexts and industries, from advertising to finance, medicine, and scientific research. While some machine learning algorithms use fairly advanced mathematics, this book focuses on simple but effective approaches. If you enjoy hacking code and data, this book is for you.
