About this book

This comprehensive reference to the C# language is designed to help you get up to speed on C#. Author Eric Gunnerson, a developer on Microsoft's C# design team, has logged many hours writing and testing C# code. Thus, he is uniquely poised to effectively coach you on using the language. And you will come to understand how C# fits into Microsoft's .NET Framework.

Gunnerson provides the ideal foundation for you to springboard into a C# knowledge base. Core topics include C# basic statements and flow of execution, classes, interfaces, expressions, arrays, enums, interoperability, exception handling, and delegates and events. The final section of the book will enlighten you on the history of C# and compare it to other widely-used programming languages. New features to this second edition include graphical user interface application development using Windows Forms, and advanced topics like threading and execution-time code generation.

Reviews

¿¿this introduction to the C# language and the .NET framework has the unmistakable stamp of inside knowledge and experience.¿ ¿MARTIN HELLER, BYTE.COM ¿¿at this point I want each reference I can get my hands on, and this one would be at the top of my list of recommendations. It is thorough, easy to read and refer to, and contains tons of examples. All of these things are necessary ingredients when learning a new programming language¿ ¿BOB TABOR, .NETBOOKS (WWW.DOTNETBOOKS.COM) ¿¿(Eric Gunnerson) is eminently qualified to explain not only how C# works, but also why it works that way. That will become evident as you read this book.¿ ¿ANDERS HEJLSBERG, MICROSOFT CORPORATION (FROM THE FOREWORD)
