The book is of the greatest benefit when the reader, who already knows C# and Visual Basic, is faced with the task of designing and shipping a medium or large software. In fact, it is many books in one. It is a UML introduction, an introduction to modeling / development / version control / testing / deployment tools by a specific company, an introduction to project management, and an introduction to the design of .NET software.

The book is a textbook rather than a reference, complete with examples and two exercise projects that the reader can complete step by step. Pragmatic solutions are given priority over theoretical correctness.
