C# and the .NET Platform, Second Edition starts with a brief overview of the C# language and then quickly moves
to key technical and architectural issues for .NET developers. Not only is there extensive coverage of the .NET
Framework, but Andrew Troelsen also shows programmers what they need to know about such necessary, but
subtle, areas as the proper use of threads and how to leverage the new .NET remoting protocol. Readers will also
see how to use C# for GUI applications with a complete discussion of Windows Forms, custom controls, and GDI+.
There are equally useful discussions on how to use C# and .NET for Web development, Web services, and data
access using ADO.NET. From Windows-based to Web-based applications, it's all here. There are detailed discussions
of every aspect of .NET development and useful examples with no toy code.
