Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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# that's 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. What you?ll learn Details of the C# 2010 language presented in a clear, concise treatment New features in the latest version of .NET, in the author's unique visual style How C# differs from and is similar to other programming languages, aiding migrating C++ and VB programmers who already know how languages work Who this book is for

Synopsis:

It was while teaching numerous seminars on various programming languages that author Daniel Solis realized the immense power diagrams have in explaining programming language concepts. Most people learn quicker and retain information better when the material is presented in a clean, simple, visual format. And that approach is exactly what you'll find in Illustrated C# 2010. Solis uses concise text, bulleted lists, and tables to clarify and summarize language features, as well as his renowned, ubiquitous figures and diagrams. Each language feature is illustrated with a concise and focused code sample for complete clarity. The result is a unique guide that will help you understand and get to work with C# fast.

In Illustrated C# 2010, you'll receive an overview of the .NET platform and the role played by C#, and then you'll move into exploring the C# language in its entirety, including all the new C# 2010 features right down to the most complex topics involved in C#. If you're a C++ or VB programmer migrating to C# 2010, this book will be invaluable; the unique visual approach offers a far from lightweight treatment of C# 2010, so even the most experienced programmers will come away with a deeper understanding of the C# language.
