- Full Description
This book presents the C# language in a uniquely succinct and visual format. Often in programming books, the information can be hidden in a vast sea of words. As a programmer who has over the years used a dozen programming languages, the author understands it can sometimes be difficult to slog through another 1,000-page book of dense text to learn a new language. There are likely many other programmers who feel the same way. To address this situation, this book explains C# using figures; short, focused code samples; and clear, concise explanations.
Figures are of prime importance in this book. While teaching programming seminars, Daniel Solis found that he could almost watch the lightbulbs going on over the students heads as he drew the figures on the whiteboard. In this text, he has distilled each important concept into simple but accurate illustrations. The visual presentation of the content will give you an understanding of C# thats not possible with text alone.
For something as intricate and precise as a programming language, however, there must be text as well as figures. But rather than long, wordy explanations, Solis has used short, concise descriptions and bulleted lists to make each important piece of information visually distinct.
By the end of this book, youll have a thorough working knowledge of all aspects of the C# language, whether youre a novice programmer or a seasoned veteran of other languages. If you want a long, leisurely, verbose explanation of the language, this is not the book for you. But if you want a concise, thorough, visual presentation of C#, this is just what youre looking for.

Please Login to submit errata.On page Kindle Version from amazon Location 1423 of 11655:in Chapter 4, Class Members, Explicit and Implicit Field Initialization. There is an example of declaring fields that reads:
int F1; // Initialized to 0 - value type
string F2; // Initialized to null - reference type
int F3; = 25; // Initialized to 25
string F4 = "abcd"; // Initialized to "abcd"
There is an extraneous ';' after F3 declaration..
On page 82:in the declaration of the Avg method inside the MyClass class, it reads :
return (input1 + input2) / 2.0F;
i would better write :
return (input1 + imput2)/2;
".0F" at the end of the line is useless. and, it provokes an error !
On page 83:the variables of the func1 function reads as follows :
float j = 2.6F;
float k = 5.1F;
i am not sure the "F" character actually makes sense.
i would better write :
float j = 2.6;
float k = 5.1;
