About the Author

KARLI WATSON is consultant at Infusion Development (www.infusion.com), a technology architect at Boost.net (www.boost.net), and a freelance IT specialist, author, and developer. For the most part, he immerses himself in .NET (in particular C# and lately WPF) and has written numerous books in the field for several publishers. He specializes in communicating complex ideas in a way that is accessible to anyone with a passion to learn, and spends much of his time playing with new technology to find new things to teach people about. During those (seemingly few) times where he isn t doing the above, Karli will probably be wishing he was hurtling down a mountain on a snowboard. Or possibly trying to get his novel published. Either way, you ll know him by his brightly colored clothes. You can also find him tweeting online at www.twitter.com/karlequin, and maybe one day he ll get around to making himself a website. Karli authored chapters 1 through 14, 21, 25 and 26.

He started programming the PC in the early 90s, using Pascal but soon changed his focus to C++, which still holds his interest. In the mid 90s his focus changed again, this time to Visual Basic. In the summer of 2000 he discovered C# and has been happily exploring it ever since. Primarily working on the Microsoft platforms, his other expertise includes MS Office development, SQL Server, COM and Visual Basic.Net.
A Danish citizen, Jacob works and lives in Aarhus, Denmark. He authored chapters 15, 16, and 22.

MORGAN SKINNER began his computing career at a young age on the Sinclair ZX80 at school, where he was underwhelmed by some code a teacher had written and so began programming in assembly language. 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# (of course). 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#. Morgan wrapped up the book by authoring chapter 27.

Format: Paperback
This book is billed as being suitable for programming novices. It's initially reasonably clear, seems comprehensive and there are good associated resources but I could not recommend this for someone who has little or no programming experience. Some programming concepts are clearly explained but there's a lot here that just appears without much if any explanation and it can be confusing. Perhaps C# isn't a good language to start with but there are some aspects of this book that need to be a lot clearer for someone who isn't already familiar with C or similar languages.

This continues where the 2008 edition left off. It gives a broad introduction to the .NET Framework which kind of places the C# bits in context. Nicely sectioned off which makes planning study that much easier. The "Note" boxes draw attention to possible stumbling blocks and the summary and recap at the end of each chapter ensures that you can track progress. There are plenty of code examples with in depth analysis to illustrate the concepts. Advanced stuff is mentioned which is good if you want to persue it further.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is a very good introduction into visual c#. It explains all the aspects of c# and object orientated programming. It explains how to program console applications first to get to grips with the programming language, and all the data types, classes, interfaces, arrays and generics. Then it moves onto windows application programming. It also introduces ado.net, linq, WPF, and asp.net. It also explains how to read & save files from the hard drive using c#. All in all a very good book.

Format: Paperback
This is a truly excellent book, Its very well written and moves at a perfect pace, However!!!If you are brand new to programming or C# then this isnt the book for you.
I would recommend you start with Teach Yourself Visual C# in 24 Hours.
The key to learning programming via a book is not to get to ahead of yourself, Dont turn to the next page untill you fully understand EVERYTHING you have just read , otherwise you just get confused and put off.

good book but if your intending to do graphical c# then don't buy this book it doesn't even cover combo boxes and seems to be more about console applications rather than what c#s really for so if you intend to do c# as a commandline app then fine otherwise don't bother
