Read an Excerpt
This is a book designed for you, the Web programmer, who has an operating knowledge of C/C++. If you have developed Web applications in any other language and want to learn how it is done in C#, then this book is for you!
The book's purpose is to introduce you to the key elements of the C# language in the context of developing Web applications with this language. The book quickly examines the key features of C# then moves you into the world of Web application development. You will learn programming strategies for Web development that will make writing code in C# that much easier.
This book teaches by example. We have tried to include all of the important features common to most Web applications in this book. The examples include all of the programming codenot just parts of it. For experienced programmers this might seem like overkill, but life has taught us that a full program listing can help explain even the most difficult programming concept.
C# appears to be taking a 180-degree turn from the traditional C++ with MFC programming so familiar to Windows programmers. While the language is most definitely C-like, the interface is not the traditional SDK. Instead, it is more closely associated with Visual Basic language because of its use of forms, controls, and so on. You are going to love this environment!
This book will highlight the radical departure of C# Web application development from other languages. Programmers retain C/C++ elements with C#, but use an easier drag-and-drop design. This single revision may revolutionize Web application design.
Get ready, and get excitedWeb application development has never been easier!
