Adnan Masood reviewer of Hammad and Rick’s Windows Server AppFabric Cookbook shared that the book is available on Safari Books online, though like him I am awaiting my dead-tree copy too but it’s nice to see it available for anyone with Safari Books subscription.
Around mid last year I was invited by my friend Hammad Rajjoub to be the technical reviewer of the Windows Server AppFabric Cookbook that he was co-authoring with Connected Systems MVP Rick Garibay. I am glad to tell you that the book is now published and is coming to stores near you and in addition to that you can order it online on Amazon, Amazon UK, B&N.
This is not a long post that talks about every aspect of the book because the authors have done a great job explaining the details but as a technical reviewer of the book I just want to tell you that if you are a .NET developer,Team Lead or Software Architect and are considering or using Windows Server AppFabric’s Caching, WCF and Workflow capabilities in your enterprise than this book is for you, the book is written in the recipe-format so its not going to waste your time but leave you with just the information that you need.

Ed showed authoring workflows in Visio 2010, export and customize them with Sharepoint Designer 2010 & Info Path 2010 and debug them with Visual Studio 2010.
Importing existing Workflow
He also imported existing Sharepoint 2007 workflows in Sharepoint 2010 with no troubles but the bad news is that there is no backward compatibility and the tools cannot be used to target Sharepoint 2007.
While the goodness offered with WF4 cannot be leveraged,this means Sharepoint 2010 is built on a mature framework that has been around for a while.
This event also gave a chance to chat with new and existing members of Techies user group,hopefully I’ll see them again.
