Product description

If you're a novice programmer and you want to learn C#, there aren't many books that will guide you. Most C# books are written for experienced C++ and Java programmers. That's why Jesse Liberty, author of the best-selling books "Programming C#" and "Programming ASP.NET", has written an entry-level guide to C#. Written in a warm and friendly manner, "Learning C#" assumes no prior programming experience, and provides a thorough introduction to Microsoft's premier .NET language. The book helps you build a solid foundation in .NET, and shows you how to apply your skills through the use of dozens of tested examples. You'll learn about the syntax and structure of the C# language, including operators, classes and interfaces, structs, arrays, and strings. Better yet, this updated edition of "Learning C#" has been completely revised to include the very latest content and teaching techniques. Here's what's new: a detailed explanation of C# 2.0 ; an introduction to Visual Basic 2005, a tool set for building Windows and web applications; more than 200 questions and programming exercises to help you better judge your understanding of the material; a greater emphasis on event handling; and information on generics and generic collections. By the time you've finished "Learning C#", you'll be ready to move on to a more advanced programming guide that will help you create large-scale web and Windows applications. Whether you have a little object-oriented programming experience or you are new to programming altogether, "Learning C#" will set you firmly on your way to mastering the essentials of the C# language.
