Good MapXtreme Textbook

Posted on 2009-04-21
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I am a proficient VB programmer (VB6, VBA) and less experienced in VB.Net.  I have recently learned about MapXtreme, which requires programming in a .Net environment in order to do useful things.  At the very beginning, I need some considerable hand holding to write a lot of programs that do simple things in order to build on success to feel like comfortable and competent code developer, but I can not find any MapXtreme textbooks out there anywehre.  I've checked on Amazon and EBay.  I also downloaded MapInfo, and I got a great deal lof handholding from the video series that gives very explicit instruction on how to run that application.  I would like to find a comparable video series or textbook to ground me in the basics of MapXtreme.  Any suggestions?
Thanks, ~Peter Ferber

    I am not aware of any MapXtreme books being available on the market.  I used MapXtreme back in 2001, or so, and the hand holding was via the reference book that came with it, or by a consultant that used it.  I am not sure if it is because it is a niche topic or what.  They should have some sort of dev section on their website to get information.
