Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Kevin Hoffman’s Microsoft Visual C# 2005 Unleashed offers a virtually endless cornucopia of C# 2005 techniques, knowledge, and up-to-date sample code.

In roughly 1,000 pages, Hoffman covers practically the entire language, and much of the surrounding .NET 2.0 platform: from basic C# syntax to objects and generics, I/O to multithreading, data access to cryptography, web services to remoting.

Events, delegates, XML, security, code optimization: They’re all here. You’ll find especially strong coverage of ASP.NET 2.0: nine chapters' worth, covering everything from master pages to Web Parts; even creating custom providers and developing new ASP.NET controls. In an equally extensive section on Windows Forms development, Hoffman offers especially useful coverage of Visual Studio 2005’s ClickOnce, which lets you create powerful client applications that are as easy to deploy and update as web pages are. Bill Camarda, from the June 2006 Read Only

Meet the Author

Kevin Hoffman has been programming since he was 10 years old. His grandfather repaired an old Commodore VIC-20 that someone had thrown away. Armed with his wirebound BASIC programming manual, a VIC-20 and "slowed" floppy drive from a Commodore 64, he was already creating text-based roleplaying games. He went on to learn just about every programming language he could find, including Pascal, C, C++, Delphi, Scheme, LISP, ASA, Perl, and many others. After learning all the languages he could find, he finally found C#, his Holy Grail of programming languages, and has been addicted to programming with C# on the .NET Framework ever since.

    integrate C# with other Microsoft products

    Hoffman's book is not so much about teaching the basics of C#. But more about the support infrastructure that Microsoft has built about it. What it terms the .NET Framework. To be sure, some early chapters discuss what is inherently in C#, like the syntax of conditional statements or of string manipulation. The former is essentially what you could have read in a Fortran text of the late 60s. The if-else is so fundamental that all major subsequent languages have copied its syntax. The string functions match those in Java. Ditto for the sections on collection classes. But the bulk of the book goes deeply into .NET. Higher value-added functionality for C# coders. Easy read and write of XML files. Part of Microsoft's big push into standardising on XML for a lot of data interchanging. Nowadays, reading and writing of XML should be considered a default ability of a current language. C#'s features here just match those of Java, for example. More importantly, the .NET Framework also includes abilities that are intrinsically specific to Microsoft. Like being able to use COM objects within a C# program. There is certainly no equivalent default ability in the standard Java distributions. Another worthy case involves tying C# to Microsoft's SQL Server, with such things as stronger means of doing database transactions. Or hooking C# to a web server with ASP.NET. For this, the newest feature seems to be Web Parts, which let the programmer easily mix shared data and data specific to that user viewing the web page. All of these play to Microsoft's strengths in comprehensive integration of its products.
