The name of the writer of this particular book should ring familiar: Kris van der Mast. Yes indeed, that’s me Smile.

I made up a contract to write another book about Azure Web Jobs and I hope to have it ready by end of this year.

Grz, Kris.

I just found out about this free eBook which can be found for download here.

The book is not a language primer, a language reference, or a single technology book. It's a book that will help professional developers move from previous versions of Visual Studio (starting with 2003 and on up). It will cover the features of Visual Studio 2010 through an application. It will go through a lot of the exciting new language features and new versions of the most popular technologies without putting the emphasis on the technologies themselves. It will instead put the emphasis on how you would get to those new tools and features from Visual Studio 2010.
