Overview

Professional C# 2005 prepares you to program in C#, and it provides the necessary background information on how the .NET architecture works. It provides examples of applications that use a variety of related technologies, including database access, dynamic web pages, advanced graphics, and directory access. The only requirement is that you are familiar with at least one other high-level language used on Windows—either C++, VB, or J++.

It starts with a tutorial on C# and the .NET framework. This introduction assumes no prior knowledge of .NET, but it does move rapidly, on the assumption that the reader is an experienced programmer. Once this background knowledge is established, the book starts to sweep through the vast .NET class library, showing how you can use C# to solve various tasks.  This comprehensive coverage is one of the key selling points of previous versions of the book, and is maintained and enhanced with this new edition by adding new chapters on Generics, ObjectSpaces, Yukon, and Indigo. Some reference material is included either as appendices or is available to download from the Wrox website.

After the introduction and initial chapter, the book is divided into a number of sections that cover both the C# language and its application in a variety of areas. Coverage includes:

  • Writing Windows applications and Windows services
  • Writing web pages and web services with ASP.NET
  • Manipulating XML using C# 2005
  • Understanding .NET Assemblies
  • Using ADO.NET to access databases
  • Integration with COM, COM+, and Active Directory
  • Distributed applications with .NET Remoting
  • Generating graphics using C# 2005
  • Accessing files and the Registry, and controlling .NET security

Using C#, you can write, for example, a dynamic web page, a component of a distributed application, a database access component, or a classic Windows desktop application. Between them C# and .NET are set to revolutionise the way that you write programs and to make programming on Windows very much easier than it has ever been.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
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.

Meet the Author

Christian Nagel is software architect and developer, associate of Thinktecture, who offers training and consulting on how to design and develop Microsoft .NET solutions. He looks back to more than 15 years’ experience as a developer and software architect. Christian started his computing career with PDP 11 and VAX/VMS platforms, covering a variety of languages and platforms. Since the year 2000 — when .NET was just a technology preview — he has been working with various .NET technologies to build distributed solutions. With his profound knowledge of Microsoft technologies, he has also written numerous .NET books; is certified as Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), Solution Developer (MCSD), and Systems Engineer (MCSE); and is Microsoft Regional Director and MVP for Visual C#. Christian is a speaker at international conferences (TechED, DevDays, VCDC) and is the regional manager of INETAEurope (International .NET User Group Association) supporting .NET user groups. You can contact Christian via his Web site, http://www.christiannagel.com and http://www.thinktecture.com.

Bill Evjen is an active proponent of the .NET technologies and community-based learning initiatives for .NET. He has been actively involved with .NET since the first bits were released in 2000 and has since become president of the St. Louis .NET User Group (http://www.stlusergroups.org). Bill is also the founder and executive director of the International .NET Association (http://www.ineta.org), which represents more than 125,000 members worldwide. Based in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, Bill is an acclaimed author and speaker on ASP.NET and XMLWeb services. He has written XMLWeb Services for ASP.NET, Web Services Enhancements: Understanding the WSE for Enterprise Applications, Visual Basic .NET Bible, and ASP.NET Professional Secrets (all published by Wiley). Bill is a Technical Director for Reuters, the international news and financial services company. He graduated from Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, with a Russian language degree. You can reach Bill at evjen@yahoo.com.

Jay Glynn started writing software nearly 20 years ago, writing applications for the PICK operating system using PICK basic. Since then, he has created software using Paradox PAL and Object PAL, Delphi, VBA, Visual Basic, C, C++, Java, and of course C#. He is currently a Project Coordinator and Architect for a large financial services company in Nashville, Tennessee, working on software for the TabletPC platform. He can be contacted at jlsglynn@hotmail.com.

Karli Watson is a freelance author and the technical director of 3form Ltd (http://www.3form.net). Despite starting out by studying nanoscale physics, the lure of cold, hard cash proved too much and dragged Karli into the world of computing. He has since written numerous books on .NET and related technologies, SQL, mobile computing, and a novel that has yet to see the light of day (but that doesn’t have any computers in it). Karli is also known for his multicolored clothing, is a snowboarding enthusiast, and still wishes he had a cat.

Morgan Skinner began his computing career at a tender age on a Sinclair ZX80 at school, where he was underwhelmed by some code a teacher had written and so began programming in assembly language. After getting hooked on Z80 (which he believes is far better than those paltry 3 registers on the 6502), he graduated through the school’s ZX81s to his own ZX Spectrum.
Since then he’s used all sorts of languages and platforms, including VAX Macro Assembler, Pascal, Modula2, Smalltalk, X86 assembly language, PowerBuilder, C/C++, VB, and currently C#. He’s been programming in .NET since the PDC release in 2000, and liked it so much he joined Microsoft in 2001. He now works in Premier Support for Developers and spends most of his time assisting customers with C#.
You can reach Morgan at http://www.morganskinner.com.

Allen Jones has a career spanning 15 years that covers a broad range of IT disciplines, including enterprise management, solution and enterprise architecture, and project management. But software development has always been Allen’s passion. Allen has architected and developed Microsoft Windows-based solutions since 1990, including a variety of e-commerce, trading, and security systems.
Allen has co-authored four popular .NET books including the C# Programmer’s Cookbook (Microsoft Press) and Programming .NET Security (O’Reilly), and he is actively involved in the development of courseware for Microsoft Learning covering emerging .NET technologies.
