About the Book

This book is a work in progress. As we write more sections we'll raise the price, but if you buy now then you'll get all this extra content for free!

We took a great example of a legacy ASP.NET and we're tearing it to pieces, fixing and improving it as we go. It's our hope that the end product will be a more stable, easier to adapt piece of software that is healthier than the original.
