Pro Visual C++/CLI and the .NET 3.5 Platform is about writing .NET applications using C++/CLI. While readers are learning the ins and outs of .NET application development, they will also be learning the syntax of C++, both old and new to .NET.
This book explains how to write .NET 2.0 applications and services. It provides you with a clean slate, erasing the need for developing the COM, DCOM, COM+, or ActiveX components that used to be a necessity. Instead, you'll learn how to write .NET applications using C++/CLI.
Pro Visual C++ 2005 for C# Developers features two distinct sections that lead to a simple migration path for you to move toward Visual C++ 2005 development. So if you're an experienced developer approaching Visual C++ from a C# background with .NET 1.1 or 1.0, you'll benefit tremendously from this book.

Foundations of C++/CLI: The Visual C++ Language for .NET 3.5 introduces C++/CLI, Microsoft's extensions to the C++ syntax that allow you to target the common language runtime, the key to the heart of the .NET Framework 3.5.
Exploring C++ divides C++ up into bite-sized chunks that will help you learn the language one step at a time. Building up from first principles you’ll soon be creating sophisticated C++ applications of your own.
Even if you're new to C++/CLI but are planning to migrate to it from another language, this book will ground you in the core language elements and give you the confidence to explore further and migrate effectively.
