ASP.NET MVC 4 and the Web API
This one hundred page book focuses exclusively on how you can best use the ASP.NET MVC 4 Framework to build world-class REST services using the Web API. It sets aside much of what the ASP.NET MVC Framework can do, and focuses exclusively on how the Web API can help you build web services. You will not find any help on CSS, HTML, JavaScript, or jQuery. Nor will you find any help on the Razor view engine, HTML Helpers, or model binding. If you need this information then Pro ASP.NET MVC 4 is your perfect book. more »
Pro PHP MVC
Model View Controller (MVC) is becoming the definitive architecture of website development frameworks due to the stability, extensibility and predictability it lends to development. It is not just the primary separation of database, business logic and interface components, but includes a wide range of considerations for building high-performing, scalable and secure applications.

Pro PHP MVC looks at the building blocks that make any good MVC framework, and how they apply to PHP. It exposes all considerations that many developers take for granted when using a popular framework, and teaches you how to make the framework your own. more »
Pro ASP.NET Web API Security
ASP.NET Web API is a key part of ASP.NET MVC 4 and the platform of choice for building RESTful services that can be accessed by a wide range of devices. Everything from JavaScript libraries to RIA plugins, RFID readers to smart phones can consume your services using platform-agnostic HTTP.

Fortunately, ASP.NET Web API provides a simple, robust security solution of its own that fits neatly within the ASP.NET MVC programming model and secures your code without the need for SOAP, meaning that there is no limit to the range of devices that it can work with – if it can understand HTTP, then it can be secured by Web API. These SOAP-less security techniques are the focus of this book. more »
Programming Microsoft ASP.NET MVC
Delve into the features, principles, and pillars of the ASP.NET MVC framework-deftly guided by Web development luminary Dino Esposito.

Plunge into the framework's internal mechanics and gain a practical, what-why-how perspective behind each ASP.NET MVC building block. You'll understand how and when to use this programming model as an alternative to Web Forms-to gain full control of HTML, simplify testing and extensibility, and design better Web sites and experiences. more »
