Amazon Review

Aimed at those with some previous programming experience, Inside C# shows developers the unique strengths, advantages and tips for coding with C#. This fast-paced and in-depth tutorial will let you use Microsoft's newest programming language on the emerging .NET platform successfully.

The outstanding strength of this text is its in-depth language tutorial on C#, with complete coverage of basic and advanced object-oriented programming techniques. New language features such as properties, indexers and attributes get full coverage, alongside the basics of using classes and inheritance.

The book relies on using Visual Studio 6.0 and the command-line .NET tools for running programs. (Visual Studio.NET, the next version of Visual Studio, was unavailable when the book was written.) First to market with an in-depth language tutorial, the focus of Inside C# is on basic and advanced language features. By viewing generated code (using the ILDASM disassembler tool), the author examines how class design features work under the hood.

The language tutorial digs into features, beginning with a "Hello World" program and delving into class design features before moving on to more basic features like expressions, operators and flow control. This sequence makes the book best suited to the experienced developer, since some excellent in-depth material on the most advanced features of C# is presented before the basics of the language. Throughout, you'll learn the newest features of the language, how to use it, and a sense of its personality.

There's also plenty of material on the underlying Microsoft .NET platform, from the basics of the Common Language Runtime (CLR) to assemblies (used to deploy .NET applications), plus getting older COM components to inter-operate with the newer .NET standard.

For anyone who's programmed before and wants to learn C# quickly, this in-depth guide anchored with plenty of short, effective examples provides what you need. Inside C# shows off the unique strengths of this new and exciting language and provides a solid introduction to the .NET platform. --Richard Dragan

From the Publisher

C# is easy to write, read, and maintain like Visual Basic, but still provides the power and flexibility of C++. Microsoft has built Visual C# with lots of features that make developing solutions faster and easier. C# makes code more stable and productive overall.

To our knowledge INSIDE C# is the only book that is focused on the C# language itself, and is not tied to any one particular development or runtime environment. Because it is focused on the base language, this book will have a much longer shelf life than the typical version-specific runtime environment books. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
