This chapter is from the book

Summary

In this chapter, you were given a brief overview of some of the core concepts of object-oriented programming (OOP) and how they apply to the tasks of building iOS and Windows Phone 7 applications using Objective-C and C#, respectively.

Those of you who have been programming for a long time might have found some of these concepts remedial, but the key here was to introduce you to the syntax required for day-to-day programming in an object-oriented programming language such as C#. As you progress through the rest of the book, we will be using things like encapsulation, inheritance, properties, methods, interfaces, and extensions extensively, and if you don't have a firm grasp on those concepts now, the rest of the book will be very difficult to read.

If you have read through this chapter and feel as though you now have a decent understanding of how to write OOP code in C#, you are well prepared to dive deeper into the world of building Windows Phone 7 applications and continue with the rest of the book.
