Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, Fluent C#, the first in the new Fluent Learning series, is a true tutorial that will help you build effective working models for understanding a large and complex subject: developing .NET Framework applications in C#.

 

Most introductory books just talk at you and give you “exercises” that have more to do with taking dictation than actually learning. Fluent C# is different. It guides you through learning the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding instead of just memorizing random facts.

  DETAILED INFORMATION ON HOW TO…

 

·        Write .NET applications in C# 2010

·        Leverage the incredible power of the .NET Framework Class Library

·        Apply Object-Oriented principles, Design Patterns, and best practices to your code

·        Develop desktop applications using the powerful Windows Presentation Foundation user interface API

 

Synopsis:

Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, Fluent C# is a true tutorial that helps you build effective working models for understanding a large and complex subject: developing .NET Framework applications with C#. Unlike so-called "tutorials" that merely describe the material briefly, and offer an "exercise" that merely requires typing in already-provided source code, this book's carefully paced exercises closely align with the brain's natural learning processes. You will discover the material yourself- and absorb it more rapidly and effectively. Fluent C# successfully introduces you to the principles and concepts you need to use Object-Oriented Programming, Test-Driven Development, design patterns, and even the Microsoft Architectural Guidelines for building effective .NET software. It also teaches powerful C# 4.0 techniques for building presentation layers with WPF; business layers that incorporate workflow, activities, and services; and data access layers that utilizing the Entity Framework and LINQ. This book's breadth is impressive. More important, its open, inviting graphical format and exercise-driven learning approach makes learning these complex topics easier and more natural than it's ever been before.
