The complete, authoritative Deitel® Live-Code introduction to object-oriented programming with C# 2.0, Visual C#® 2005, ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and Web Services! C# is one of the world’s most powerful object-oriented languages. This new edition, which is completely updated to C# 2.0 and Visual C#® 2005, uses a carefully paced early classes and objects approach.
This book is a must have for any C# student because of its thorough explanations, its carefully developed and commented examples, and its numerous and interesting exercises. The idea of introducing a bit of UML in each chapter through a case study is great and should be in every book! It’s the book I’ll recommend to my students! —José Antonio González Seco, Andalucia’s Parlamient
I’m glad to see the early treatment of objects done so well. The UML material is well explained and will help students better understand OOP. A comprehensive introduction to XML, and one of the clearest tutorials on Web services I’ve read, with great examples. An excellent chapter on generics. Explains data structures with a clarity that is hard to come by. —Gavin Osborne, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology
All of this has been carefully scrutinized by a substantial team of academics, .NET industry developers and members of the Microsoft C# development team.
We believe that this book and its support materials have everything instructors and students need for an informative, interesting, challenging and entertaining C# educational experience. In this Preface, we overview various conventions used in the book, such as syntax shading the code examples and code highlighting. We also discuss the book's comprehensive suite of ancillary materials that help instructors maximize their students' learning experience, including the Prentice Hall Instructor's Resource Center, PowerPoint® Slide lecture notes, companion Web site, SafariX (Pearson Education's WebBook publications) and more.
