Reviewed Book “Learning Vaadin 7 – Second Edition by Nicolas Fränkel”

I have gotten this opportunity to review the book named ‘Learning Vaadin 7- Second Edition’ from Packt (UK based publishing company specializing in focused IT books).

Following is a review I made for this book

“This book is a useful step by step guide that focuses on both basic and advanced concepts of Vaadin framework. There are few corrections needs to be done, as in chapter 1, I found a typo error in the diagram and also in chapter 3, JSON syntax is not correct. Apart from this it’s a nice read and good for developers to reference when doing hands on. Nicolas has not only articulated core concepts but has also shown the way of configuring and developing programs using Eclipse IDE”
