The programming language C# was built with the future of application development in mind. Pursuing that vision, C#'s designers succeeded in creating a safe, simple, component-based, high-performance language that works effectively with Microsoft's .NET Framework. Now the favored language among those programming for the Microsoft platform, C# continues to grow in popularity as more developers discover its strength and flexibility. And, from the start, C# developers have relied on Programming C# both as an introduction to the language and a means of further building their skills. The new fourth edition of Programming C#--the top-selling C# book on the marketing--has been updated to the C# ISO standard as well as changes to Microsoft's implementation of the language. It also provides notes and warnings on C# 1.1 and C# 2.0. Aimed at experienced programmers and web developers, Programming C#, 4th Edition doesn't waste too much time on the basics. Rather, it focuses on the features and programming patterns that are new to C# language. Some of these new features covered in-depth include: * Visual Studio 2005 * Generics * Collection interfaces and iterators * Anonymous methods * New ADO.N ET data controls * Fundamentals of Object Oriented Programming Author Jesse Liberty, an acclaimed web programming expert and entrepreneur, teaches C# in a way that experienced programmers will appreciate by grounding its applications firmly in the context of Microsoft's .NET platform and the development of desktop and Internet applications. Liberty also incorporates reader suggestions from previous editions to help create the most consumer-friendly guide more
