Description

Appropriate for all basic-to-intermediate level courses in Visual C# 2010 programming. Created by world-renowned programming instructors Paul and Harvey Deitel, Visual C# 2010 How to Program, Fourth Edition introduces all facets of the C# 2010 language hands-on, through hundreds of working programs. This book has been thoroughly updated to reflect the major innovations Microsoft has incorporated in Visual C# 2010 and .NET 4; all discussions and sample code have been carefully audited against the newest Visual C# language specification.Students begin by getting comfortable with the C# Express 2010 IDE and basic Visual C# syntax. Next, they build their skills one step at a time, mastering control structures, classes, objects, methods, variables, arrays, and the core techniques of object-oriented programming. With this strong foundation in place, the Deitels introduce more sophisticated techniques, including searching, sorting, data structures, generics, and collections. Throughout, the authors show students how to make the most of Microsoft's Visual Studio tools. A series of appendices provide essential programming reference material on topics ranging from number systems to the Visual Studio Debugger, UML 2 to Unicode and ASCII.show more
