Get started programming C# with this versatile resource

Eager to learn Visual C# programming? This unique book-and-DVD package geared toward those with no programming experience presents easy-to-follow lessons, reinforced by step-by-step instructions, screencasts, and supplemental exercises to help you master Visual C# programming quickly. You'll first discover how to write, debug, and run desktop applications that interact with the user and the computer. You'll then progress to more advanced lessons that teach you how to apply object-oriented concepts, perform calculations, manipulate files and strings, interact with simple databases, and more. All of this will give you the skills to write your own customized Visual C# programs.
