I just finished reading "Pro ASP.NET Core 6" and this is my review.

A few weeks back I had the chance to read this book and now, I would like to share my feelings with everybody.

The author

I do not think I should introduce the author of this precious book.

Adam Freeman
He is an experienced IT professional who has held senior positions in a range of companies, most recently serving as chief technology officer and chief operating officer of a global bank. Now retired, he spends his time writing and long-distance running.

With advent of ASP.NET MVC 4, I started following him and now its time to say thanks to him for what he has written and shared with all of us.

.NET echo system especially ASP.NET Core 6 is replete with new features that should be discovered or some parts that can be a bit complex at least at the first impression. Then, reading this book is the solution. In each chapter, the fundamental concepts are explained for middle/senior developers.

Let’s have a look at the table of contents:

My evaluation

You can start a real project from scratch by reading this book. Every page of this book would shed a light on a dark portion of ASP.NET Core Development in your mind. I can only recommend reading this book, and it is definitely a useful book to keep on your desk because it can always be useful during the development of a project.

You can find this book directly on Amazon : Pro ASP.NET Core 6
