Professional C# 2005 will help you master the one language best suited to contemporary .NET development: the Microsoft language that best reflects recent innovations in software development. Yes, that’s C# 2005, a.k.a. Whidbey.
Professional C# 2005 doesn’t just cover the core language: It places C# in the broader context of .NET and shows C# at work supporting database access, dynamic web pages, advanced graphics, access to directory services, and much more.
The authors begin with C# syntax and language elements: variables, data types, flow control, enumerations, arrays, namespaces, classes, structs, inheritance, operators, casts, type safety, operator overloading, delegates, events, memory management, strings, regular expressions, collections, and more. They thoroughly explain (and fully reflect) Whidbey’s major improvements: generics, anonymous methods, iterators, and partial and nullable types, among others. As you've come to expect from Wrox books, there are barrels of code examples.
Next, you'll turn to the .NET environment, including assemblies, Framework security, localization, and deployment. A full section on data access covers ADO.NET, XML, Active Directory, and SQL Server 2005. (The latter, of course, comes with the .NET CLR baked right in, so you can use C# to create stored procedures, functions, and data types.)
The authors walk through creating both Windows and web applications, highlight some key .NET platform improvements, such as ASP.NET master pages. Finally, you’ll find strong coverage of Web services, .NET remoting, and interoperability between .NET and pre-.NET applications: not just backward compatibility with COM, but the use of .NET components within COM applications.
