Announcing my upcoming book "Learning AngularJS for .NET developers"

UPDATE: The book was launched on 25/07/2014 and it has a free chapter "Testing and debugging AngularJS applications" that is described here.

My blog was a bit quiet in the past 6 months and I had a good reason for this. Since February I am working on a book called "Learning AngularJS for .NET developers" covering the intersection between AngularJS, ServiceStack, ASP.NET MVC and ... Node.js.

Using AngularJS with ServiceStack while keeping ASP.NET MVC in the background

UPDATE: This post is now only valid for ServiceStack v3. ServiceStack v4 has now built in support for a Windows Authentication Provider: https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/blob/master/release-notes.md#windows-auth-provider-for-aspnet .

  I mentioned in a previous post the productivity gains on the server side front when using the excellent ServiceStack framework. In this post I want to present a starter application that relies on AngularJS and ServiceStack to provide almost all its functionality while using ASP.NET MVC for very few and specific features.
