Damien Watkins, Mark Hammond, Brad Abrams
An authoritative guide for students that need to develop software that takes full advantage of the .NET Framework. This book shows students how to produce generic frameworks, libraries, classes, and tools to be used in the .NET Framework. It also shows how to use the right language to develop parts of a system and then incorporate these parts together at runtime regardless of language differences. The book concludes with a series of appendices.
