Book Review – Profesional SharePoint Designer 2007

Posted by Brian Gough on February 15, 2009

I have recently read through this book authored by Asif Rehmani, Woody W. and Bryan P.

Whether you are just getting into SharePoint Designer or have been using it for a little while, this is an excellent book to have on your shelf. It is well written and easy to follow, so you get a better grip on Designer faster.
A couple of things that stand out for me are 1)the extras that point you to other resources to help augment Designer and make things easier for you, and 2) the depth that they go into especially around Web part Page Services Component ( WPSC ) and creating add-ins for Designer. This really helps the reader to see and understand that there is more to Designer than just the out-of-the-box UI.
So for those of us that want to get into the real nuts and bolts of designer and what it can do, this is a nice introduction. The fact that they include a section covering the use of Visual Studio to help enhance Designer is also a nice touch. With this one book, you will get a solid understanding of what you can do with Designer and how you can use Visual Studio to make it even better.

Well done guys!
