    From the Publisher

    “The Teach Yourself in 24 Hours series of books from Sams has been a staple of anyone wanting to quickly come up-to-speed on a new technology. This book is not just a simple refresh of last year’s book, Scott has written it from the ground up for the Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 release. From the C# type system, to events and data, from ASP.NET Web to WPF Windows applications, Sams Teach Yourself Visual C# 2010 in 24 Hours will provide any developer new to the C# language a great foundation to build upon.”

    Shawn Weisfeld, Microsoft Visual C# MVP

    “The key to learning software development is to have a great foundation. Sams Teach Yourself Visual C# 2010 in 24 Hours is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn C# from the beginning, or just brush up on its features. Scott Dorman brings a very knowledgeable, yet casual approach to his book that anyone with the desire to learn to program in .NET can be inspired by. I found a few gems that will enhance my future programming projects.”

    Chris “Woody” Woodruff, Co-Host of Deep Fried Bytes Podcast

    “This book is an excellent resource for anyone who is learning C# for the first time, migrating from Visual Basic, or catching up on the latest features of C#. It is full of information and should be on the desks of any developer who is becoming familiar with C# 2010.”

    Jeff Julian, Managing Partner, AJI Software, Founder of GeeksWithBlogs.NET

    “Scott Dorman has written an excellent reference book that not only covers the basic fundamentals of .NET 4.0 C# development, but also includes instruction and guidance on the finer points of advanced C# and development with Visual Studio 2010. The book is written in a clear and concise manner, with liberal usage of ‘Did You Know,’ ‘By the Way,’ and ‘Watch Out!’ sidebars that help provide the reader with informative ‘sign posts’ along their journey for re-enforcing key concepts, best practices, and anti-patterns. These invaluable sign posts really help to ‘bring-it-home’ to the reader with Scott’s real-world commentary about why certain topics are critical in the overall understanding and use of the C# language and associated constructs. Whether you are a novice, intermediate, or professional developer, this book will certainly become a very handy, well-thumbed, desk reference for today’s highly productive .NET 4.0 C# developer.”

    Jeff Barnes, Architect Microsoft Developer & Platform Evangelism, Microsoft Corporation

    “This book covers all the bases, from the C# language, through the frameworks you’ll use it with and the tools you need to be productive. The best way to learn is to do, and there is no shortage of doing here.”

    Chris Burrows, C# Compiler Team, Microsoft Corporation

    Sams Teach Yourself Visual C# 2010 in 24 Hours gives you the jump start you need to be productive quickly. I found the book extremely clear to follow and laid out logically hour by hour to flow you through related topics. From novices to C# veterans, this book gives you all you need to understand all that is new in the 2010 release.”

    Richard Jones, Microsoft MVP
