If you never relished the task of learning C++, C# is the language you've been waiting for. Microsoft's pretty well managed to deliver the power of C++ together with the relative simplicity of Visual Basic. And that's a compelling combination. Beginning C# is an equally compelling resource for anyone who's new to C# -- whatever their background. You'll find it especially helpful if you're moving to a "true" object-oriented language for the first time (though even experienced OO developers will welcome the coverage of C#'s approach to objects).
The first quarter of Beginning C# offers a practical introduction to the basic syntax of the language: variables, expressions, flow control, functions, error handling, and basic debugging. Wrox's author team next moves on to C# objects and classes, introduces the language's approach to events, and presents two comprehensive chapters on .NET's powerful new Windows Forms and form controls. There's a full chapter on GDI+, which will enable major improvements in Windows user interfaces.
You'll find detailed coverage of ADO.NET data access and .NET assemblies. The book's highlight: a practical introduction to C# and ASP.NET web programming, including a full chapter on the sizzling topic of web services. (Bill Camarda)
