C# Primer: A Practical Approach
Stanley B. Lippman
Now Stan Lippman brings you C# using his famed primer format. C# PRIMER is a comprehensive, example-driven introduction to this new object-oriented programming language.
First, the student will tour the language, looking at built-in features such as the class mechanism, class inheritance, and interface inheritance--all while building small programs. Next, the student will explore the various library domains supported within the .NET class framework while learning how to use the language and class framework to solve problems and build quality programs. Stan Lippman includes coverage of fundamentals such as namespaces, exception handling, and unified type system. He presents a wide-ranging tour of the .NET class library, introducing ADO.NET and establishing database connections and the use of XML. He provides XML programming using the firehose and DOM parser models, XSLT, XPATH, and schemas. He also focuses on ASP.NET Web Form Designer, walking through the page life-cycle and caching, and providing a large number of examples. C# PRIMER provides a solid foundation to build upon and a refreshingly unbiased voice on Microsoft's vehicle to effective and efficient Web-based programming.
