The practicing programmer's DEITEL LIVE-CODE guide toC# and the powerful Microsoft .NET Framework.
C# for Experienced Programmers is written for programmers with backgrounds in C++, Visual Basic, Java or other high-level languages, who want to learn C# through the intermediate level. If you already own C# How To Program, 1/e, you should not purchase C# for Experienced Programmers. However, you may be interested in our ASP .NET with C# for Experienced Programmers, which will be published in Summer 2003. Students should not purchase C# for Experienced Programmers. Instead, students should purchase C# How To Program, 1/e, as it contains self-review exercises and other ancillary materials suitable for self-study and classroom use. We also recommend that everyone consider The Complete C# Training Course, 1/e, which includes C# How to Program, 1/e and the C# Cyber Classroom--an interactive, multimedia, Windows-based CD-ROM. The Complete Training Course offers a great value and provides a powerful learning tool for readers who want to pursue C# programming through the intermediate level.
Written for programmers with a background in C++, Visual Basic, Java or other high-level languages, this book applies the DEITEL signature LIVE-CODE approach to teaching programming and explores Microsoft's C# language in depth. This book presents important C# concepts in the context of fully tested programs, complete with syntax shading, detailed line-by-line descriptions and program outputs. The book features 230 LIVE-CODE programs that contain 26,006 lines of proven C# program code. In addition, the book includes 402 programming tips that help you build applications that are portable, reusable and optimized for performance.
Start with a concise introduction to C # fundamentals, then rapidly move on to more advanced topics, including Windows Forms, ADO .NET, ASP .NET, ASP .NET Web services, network programming and XML processing. Along the way you will enjoy the Deitels' classic treatment of object-based and object-oriented programming.
