C# Essentials Summary

C# Essentials by Ben Albahari

An introduciton to the Microsoft C# programming language, and the Microsoft .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) and Base Class Libraries (BCL) that support it. The book's compact format and terse presentation of key concepts serve as a roadmap to the on-line documentation included with the Microsoft .NET Framework SDK; the many examples provide much-needed context. In addition to overviews of C#, the CLR, and the BCL, C# Essentials includes coverage of: every C# language element and its syntax, in reference format; the major C# datatypes, with code examples; basic C# programming tasks; interoperations with legacy Win32 APIs and COM components, and the use of C/C++ style pointers within the managed context of the CLR; and common development issues. "C# Essentials" is a way for experienced programmers to get up to speed quickly on the language best suited to developing Web applications and services on the new Microsoft .NET platform.

C# Essentials Reviews

'A good way of getting up to speed on CSHARP for object-oriented programmers.' Computer Shopper, Dec (HIT!) '...I found all the explanations very clear and concise. I don't think there was anything left unanswered... Priced at ?13.95 it's certainly cheap and doesn't take up half your shelf space as other massive volumes tend to. If you're at all interested in learning a great new Object-Oriented language, then I recommend you give this book a go. O'Reilly also have another book that gives the .NET Framework the same treatment, this may be a worthy edition so you can use Microsoft's new .NET technology to its full potential.' - Peter Waller, new@UK, December 2001
