This is a complete introduction to C# and object-oriented programming which should help you build a solid foundation in .NET, and show how to apply your skills by using dozens of tested examples. The book introduces Visual Studio .NET, a tool set for building Windows and Web applications. You'll learn about the syntax and structure of the C# language, including operators, classes and interfaces, structs, arrays, and strings. Liberty then demonstrates how to develop various kinds of applications - including those that work with databases - and Web services. By the time you've finished "Learning C#" you should be ready to move on to a more advanced programming guide that will help you create large-scale Web and Windows applications. Whether you have a little object-oriented programming experience or you are new to programming altogether, the book should set you firmly on your way to mastering the essentials of the C# language.
