In Professional C#, Third Edition Wrox’s Windows programming luminaries dive into every C# nook and cranny, teaching how to use it to build whatever you want: Windows apps and services, web apps, distributed components, ADO.NET database apps, ASP.NET web services -- you name it.
The previous edition earned raves. This one’s been thoroughly reorganized and updated to reflect .NET 1.1, Visual Studio .NET 2003, plus new guidance on deployment, localization, and other topics. You’ll still need a little Windows programming experience. (VB, C++, or even J++ will do: No .NET experience needed.) But if you’ve got that, this book will take you the rest of the way.
The first chapters introduce the broader .NET environment, C# syntax, and the meat-and-potatoes techniques you’ll need, from classes and inheritance to delegates, events, collections, reflection, and exceptions. There's a thorough introduction to assemblies: .NET building blocks that bring together functionality that can be constructed, versioned, and deployed as one. You'll master the latest data access and viewing techniques, and discover how to make the most of C#'s XML support.
There's practical guidance and code for implementing .NET security, including detailed coverage of the command-line Code Access Security Policy tool. There’s also a chapter-length introduction to building distributed applications with .NET remoting. From COM interoperability to Active Directory/ADSI to advanced GDI+ graphics, it’s in here: practical help, and lots of sample code. These authors have been around the block with C#. Their efficient, no-nonsense instruction is a breath of fresh air. Bill Camarda
