Head First C#, 2nd Edition Book Review

Dr. Dobb's JournalMike Riley
May 27, 2010

I always look forward to new releases in the Head First series of books. The approach used in these titles remind me of high school textbooks presented in a much more energized, engaging way. This updated edition of Head First C# features the .NET 4.0 framework and the Visual Studio 2010 IDE. I didn't read the first edition, so I can't comment on what has changed, but the material related to the latest .NET and Visual Studio features is relevant and well represented. - Tools

What a year it has been for Apple developer-related books.

With the unbridled success of the iPhone and Apple's App Store, commercially-driven developers are flocking to create and/or port applications to this highly successful mobile platform. Computer book publishers are also flocking to the subject, exemplified by the fact that dozens of iPhone programming books have been released in the last year alone.

jQuery Novice to Ninja Book Review

Dr. Dobb's JournalMike Riley
May 10, 2010

jQuery has become the one of the must use/must know Javascript libraries of many Web 2.x domains. This remarkably compact .js file contains plenty of dynamic presentation layer goodness, but learning to use it well beyond the numerous example snippets on the web is a necessity if your web project depends on it. Several books are already on the market, and publisher Sitepoint recently joined the fray with jQuery: Novice to Ninja by Earle Castledine and Craig Sharkie. How does it stack up against the rest? Read on to find out. - Tools

May 05, 2010

PHP has come a long way since its introduction 15 years ago. What began as a means for PHP creator Rasmus Lerdorf to display his resume to prospective employers visiting his personal website has blossomed into what many refer to as the Visual Basic of the web. As a result of its lengthy and highly successful history, numerous books have been written about it. How does O'Reilly's latest addition, PHP: The Good Parts, compare to this vast sea of PHP content?

The Art of Assembly Language, 2nd Ed Review

Dr. Dobb's JournalMike Riley
April 27, 2010

I haven't seriously programmed in assembler for nearly 20 years. The last time I did was for a set of routines on the Motorola 68000 chip powering my long gone Atari ST computer. The computing world has changed quite a bit since then and so have the number of programming options and frameworks. However, a lament made by a number of prominent CS educators is that abstracted frameworks lessen the understanding of what is really going on at the machine level. Does The Art of Assembly Language satisfy such educational deficiencies by effectively teaching lower-level practices to the uninitiated? Read on to find out. - Tools

April 14, 2010

Blender, the powerful open source 3-D rendering tool, offers designers and developers alike the power to script, program and generate vistas of the imagination. And while the tool has a steep learning curve, its riches await those who patiently invest the time to learn its intricacies.

Making it Big in Software Book Review

Dr. Dobb's JournalMike Riley
March 30, 2010

After reviewing the less than stellar 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know, I was skeptical about reviewing yet another book that interviewed developers for their professional wisdom. However, unlike 97 Things, Making it Big in Software takes a different approach with a much more recognizable cast. Is it worth your while? Read on to find out. - Tools
