C# Cookbook (Cookbooks)by Jay Hilyard
Synopses & Reviews
With C# Cookbook, 2nd Edition, you'll be able to learn and improve your mastery of both the C# language and the .NET platform. This updated bestseller has been completely revised to account for C# 2.0, the latest version of this popular object-oriented programming language. It also includes more than 100 new code solutions (over 300 overall) to common problems and tasks that you're sure to face as a C# programmer.
Nearly every solution, or "recipe," contains a complete, documented code sample showing you how to solve the specific problem, as well as a detailed discussion of how and why the underling technology works. This question-solution-discussion format is a proven teaching method, as any fan of O'Reilly's "Cookbook" series can attest to. In fact, no other source offers a learn-as-you-go format quite like this.
C# Cookbook, 2nd Edition is organized into 20 chapters, each of which focuses on a particular topic in creating C# solutions. Here are just some of what's covered:
Best of all, you don't have to be an experienced C# or .NET developer to use C# Cookbook, 2nd Edition. You just have to be someone who wants to solve a problem now, without having to learn all the related theory first.
Book News Annotation:
Aimed at developers of all levels, this "cookbook" uses a question- and-answer format to address approximately 300 C# programming tasks they are likely to encounter in their day-to-day work. Each "recipe" consists of a single problem, its solution, a discussion of the solution, and a list of additional resources. The second edition has been completely revised for C# 2.0 and .NET 2.0, and sample code for each solution has been made available for download from a companion website.
