Overview

This book presents the C# 5.0 language in a uniquely succinct and visual format. Often in programming books, the information can be hidden in a vast sea of words. As a programmer who has over the years used a dozen programming languages, the author understands it cansometimes bedifficult to slog through another 1,000-page book of dense text to learn a new language. There are likelymany other programmers who feel the same way. To address this situation, this bookexplains C# 5.0 using figures; short, focused code samples; and clear, concise explanations.

Figures are of prime importance in this book. Whileteaching programming seminars, Daniel Solisfound that hecould almost watch the light bulbs going on over the students’ heads as hedrew the figures on the whiteboard. In this text, he hasdistilled each important concept into simple but accurate illustrations. The visual presentation of the content will give you an understanding of C# that’s not possible with text alone.

For something as intricate and precise as a programming language, however, there must be text as well as figures. But rather than long, wordy explanations, Solis hasused short, concise descriptions and bulleted lists to make each important piece of information visually distinct.

By the end of this book, you’ll have a thorough working knowledge of all aspects of the C# language, whether you’re a novice programmer or a seasoned veteran of other languages. If you want a long, leisurely, verbose explanation of the language, this is not the book for you. But if you want a concise, thorough, visual presentation of C# 5.0, this is just what you’re looking for.

What you’ll learn

  • Details of the C# 5.0 language presented in a clear, concise treatment
  • New features in the latest version of .NET, version 4.5, in the author’s unique visual style
  • How C# differs from and is similar to other programming languages, aiding migrating C++ and VB programmers who already know how languages work

Who this book is for

  • Visual Basic programmers interested in moving to C#
  • C++ programmers interested in moving to C#
  • Novice programmers interested in learning C#
  • Students in introductory programming classes learning C#
