This invaluable resource offers a comprehensive foundation in the C# programming language and the core aspects of the .NET platform, plus overviews of technologies built on top of C# and .NET (e.g., ADO.NET and Entity Framework, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Presentation Foundation, and ASP.NET). Robust coverage includes:
