Learn how to how to use C# for Internet programming with the hands-on
techniques and clear explanations. This book discusses some C# features that
allow rapid development of solutions such as garbage collection, simplified type
declarations, and scalability support. The book explains key concepts in a
simple and practical manner. Web Forms and Web Controls usher in an elegant way
to make dynamic Web pages. The book covers these topics with how-to code
examples and projects. One of the newest developments in Internet programming is
the use of XML and the SOAP communication protocol. .NET Web Services harness
these two technologies, and is covered in later sections of the book.
