For anyone who's learning about C#, this book doesn't assume any prior knowledge of programming, of the .NET Framework, or of coding in general. It simply assumes that the reader is an intelligent person who wants to learn standard and important technology from the ground up.

Synopsis:

This book is for anyone who wants to write good C# 2008 code?even if you have never programmed before.

Writing good code can be a challenge. There are so many options, especially in a language like C#. If you want to really get the best from a programming language, you need to know which features work best in which situations and understand their strengths and weaknesses. It is this understanding that makes the difference between coding and coding well.

Beginning C# 2008 has been written to teach you how to use the C# programming language to solve problems. From the earliest chapters, and from the first introductory concepts, you'll be looking at real-world programming challenges and learning how C# can be used to overcome them. As you progress through the book, the problems become more involved and interesting, while the solutions become correspondingly more complex and powerful as C# features interact to achieve the results that you want.

By the time you've finished reading this book and worked through the sample exercises, you'll be a confident and very competent C# programmer. You will still have many explorations of the .NET Framework API to look forward to in your future career, but you will have a firm foundation to build from and you will know exactly where to go to find the things that you need to progress confidently in your projects.

Christian Gross is dedicated to helping his readers understand every detail of Beginning C# 2008. You can contact him via Skype (christianhgross) if you have bought this book and have a question about something he discusses. If Christian is available when you contact him, he will even try to answer you right away What you?ll learn Everything to get you started with C# 2008 from scratch?from installing the tools to writing your first applicationsAll the core concepts of .NET 3.5 programming: from decision trees to data structures, exceptions to lambda expressions and from objects to componentsLearn what LINQ is, why functional programming can be important, how generics make your life easier and much, much, more Who this book is for
