Programming Entity Framework by Julia Lerman

Entity Framework is the next generation data access framework from Microsoft. It comes to fill in the gaps between database programming and object-oriented design. I was waiting for months for this book to be published. It covers all aspects of developing applications with entity framework and all tips, tricks and hacks that I've found the hard way so It's definitely a must have. The book is organized more like a best practices sessions. You'll need some insight for database and .net programming to use it but than again Entity Framework is not for the meek. All code samples are on C# and VB.


Programming Microsoft ASP.NET 3.5 by Dino Esposito

I've got this book as a gift for being a judge on the Imagine Cup for Bulgarian finals. I didn't actually plan to read it but once I started I couldn't help myself. The book covers every aspect of web development with 3.5 and also have some introductory chapters on Silverlight. I wouldn't recommend it to complete newbies who are now starting with programming and web development but it is very good choice for everybody else. The author is Dino Esposito and this is so far his best book in my humble opinion. Take special look at the chapter covering HttpModules and HttpHandlers.
