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.
