C# IS A RELATIVELY NEW LANGUAGE that was unveiled to the world when Microsoft announced the fi rst version of its .NET Framework in July 2000. Since then its popularity has rocketed, and it has arguably become the language of choice for both desktop and web developers who use the .NET Framework. Part of the appeal of C# comes from its clear syntax, which derives from C/C++ but simplifies some things that have previously discouraged some programmers. Despite this simplification, C# has retained the power of C++, and there is now no reason not to move into C#. The language is not difficult and it’s a great one to learn elementary programming techniques with. This ease of learning, combined with the capabilities of the .NET Framework, make C# an excellent way to start your
The latest release of C#, C# 5, which is included with version 4.5 of the .NET Framework, builds on the existing successes and adds even more attractive features. The latest release of Visual Studio (Visual Studio 2012) and the Visual Studio Express 2012 line of development tools also bring many tweaks and improvements to make your life easier and dramatically increase your productivity.
This book is intended to teach you about all aspects of C# programming, from the language itself, through desktop and web programming, to making use of data sources, and fi nally to some new and advanced techniques. You’ll also learn about the capabilities of Visual Studio 2012, and all the ways that this product can aid your application development.
The book is written in a friendly, mentor-style fashion, with each chapter building on previous ones, and every effort is made to ease you into advanced techniques painlessly. At no point will technical terms appear from nowhere to discourage you from continuing; every concept is introduced and discussed as required. Technical jargon is kept to a minimum; but where it is necessary, it, too, is properly defined and laid out in context.
The authors of this book are all experts in their field, and are all enthusiastic in their passion for both the C# language and the .NET Framework. Nowhere will you find a group of people better qualified to take you under their collective wing and nurture your understanding of C# from first principles to advanced techniques. Along with the fundamental knowledge it provides, this book is packed full of helpful hints, tips, exercises, and full-fl edged example code (available for download at p2p.wrox.com) that you will find yourself returning to repeatedly as your career progresses. We pass this knowledge on without begrudging it, and hope that you will be able to use it to become the best programmer you can be. Good luck, and all the best!
