Effective REST Services via .NET Getting Closer

Kenn Scribner and I are busy getting our book, Effective REST Services via .NET, ready for publication. We’ve already written all the content and received the technical reviews. This past weekend, Kenn spent some serious time making sure that the voice in the book was consistent. Today, the editors get there hands on the manuscript in order to fix punctuation and English. That’s right, the folks with degrees in English will fix our prose. It’s exciting to know that this book is getting closer to being on bookshelves and available for ordering from Amazon. Unlike the other .NET REST titles out there, we don’t spend 300+ pages talking about WCF and how cool it is. Instead, this book walks through all the different ways that a .NET developer has created to expose and consume REST services. IHttpModule, MVC, Azure, ADO.NET Data Services, JavaScript, XMLHttpRequest, WinForms, ASP.NET, Silverlight, WPF, and WCF. Depending on what you are doing and the type of service you are consuming, one of these technologies makes more sense than the others. No other book or resource covers the set of mechanisms in this manner. If you develop web applications as a intranet or Internet developer, you will appreciate having this book on your bookshelf. I can’t wait to have my copy!
