Publisher Comments:

This book presents the C# 2012 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# 2012 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 light bulbs 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# 2012 language presented in a clear, concise treatment New features in the latest version of .NET, version 4.5, 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

Visual Basic programmers interested in moving to C# C++ programmers interested in moving to C# Novice programmers interested in learning C# Students in introductory programming classes learning C#
