What will you learn from this book?
For beginning programmers looking to learn C#, this practical guide provides a bright alternative to the legions of dull tutorials on this popular object-oriented language. Fun and highly visual, this introduction to C# will keep you engaged and entertained from first page to last. Head First C# guides you through the fundamentals and shows you how this language works to create user interfaces, databases, and more. You'll apply what you've learned in a series of hands-on labs.
Why does this book look so different?
Based on the latest research in cognitive science and learning theory, Head First C# uses a visually rich format to engage your mind, rather than a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep. Why waste your time struggling with new concepts? This multi-sensory learning experience is designed for the way your brain really works.
