Full Description

If you’re new to C# programming, this book is the ideal way to get started. Respected author Adam Freeman guides you through the C# language by carefully building up your knowledge from fundamental concepts to advanced features.

The book gradually builds up your knowledge, using the concepts you have already grasped to support those that come next. You will explore all the core areas of the C# language and the .NET Framework on which it runs. Particular attention is paid to the creation of Web and Windows applications and data access—danger zones where novice programmers often go awry in their early coding attempts.

Introducing Visual C# 2010 is a comprehensive primer. Even if you have no previous programming experience, you can have confidence in the fact that you'll be able to build well constructed web and Windows applications of your own once you have finished reading this book.

What you’ll learn

  • Understand the fundamentals of the C# language’s syntax and grammar and use it to create Web and Windows applications.

  • What object oriented programming is and how it is used in the .NET 4 Framework to save you time and increase the language’s flexibility. 

  • Connect to a wide range of data sources and incorporate their information into your dynamic applications.
  • Understand the key time and effort saving features of C# such as generics, lambda expressions, and delegates. 

  • Discover the huge array of supporting technologies that .NET 4 provides such as the Windows Presentation Foundation, LINQ, Parallel Programming, ASP.NET, Silverlight and Web Services.

Who this book is for

This book is ideal for anyone who is interested in learning about Microsoft's Visual C# 2010 language. Whether you have no previous coding experience or are bringing some existing skills with you from another programming language, this book will teach you everything you need to know to confidently create your own C# programs.
