Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Mono is an open-source implementation of the infrastructure upon which Microsoft's .NET Framework is built. Providing a compatible option with all of the technical features of .NET without the restrictive licensing and prohibitive costs that Microsoft imposes, the Mono project was initiated and co-financed by Ximian Corporation for the development of an open source version of .NET Framework for Linux/Unix and Windows platforms (Mac OS X support will be added)..

Mono will allow cross-platform programming and operating of .NET compatible applications. Experts see the presence of a Unix-compatible version as decisive for the success of .NET.

Mono Kick Start is a practical introduction to Mono and .NET compatible application programming with Mono. After a classically structured crash-course on the C# language and Mono's own compiler, the authors reach down deeper to subjects like threads, network programming, security, database interaction, XML, and more.

A comprehensive practical section shows you how to set up Web applications with Mono, how GUIs can be programmed using GTK, and how applications written with .NET can be operated in the Mono framework.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Charles B. Destefanis on November 13, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a good introduction to C# and Mono, unfortunately something is lost in the translation. One paragraph seems to be missing a sentence, and I was confused on numerous occcasions by variable names that appear to be in German. It can be confusing when the "avg" variable suddenly changes to "zah1". The "Human" class is refered to as the "Mensch" class in one example, and apparently "Andreas" is German for "Andy." If these kinds of errors don't trip you up, I recommend this book.

Even this book was wrote in the early times of Mono I found it a really good introduction to the Mono Development, it is not designed to the "Professional C# Programmer" but for the really beginer in Mono and the C# Language.

It covers topics from the basic of C# Programming to topics about Network Programming, Database Programming and XML Programming.

If you want to start programming in Mono, start with this book

Format: Paperback
I have to say this was my first Mono book and I was impress. At the time of getting it, I knew nothing about Mono and it really introduced me to C# in an easy to understand manner. The book is not advance by any means but with the examples and easy explanations it will take you from beginner to intermediate level user in no time. To this day I still find myself referring back to this book at the easy to follow examples. I give it 5 stars and I recommend it for anyone new to Mono or just want to something to refer to if needed.

Mono Kick Start is co-written by Hans-Juergen Schoenig and Ewald Geschwinde for intermediate to advanced users and is a fast-paced, hands-on, nicely organized guide to Mono and .NET compatible application programming with Mono. Includes subjects like threads, network programming, security, database interaction, XML, and more, plus a comprehensive practical section that shows readers how to set up Web applications with Mono, how GUIs can be programmed using GTK, and how applications written with .NET can be operated in the Mono framework.
