Using Generics in C# 2.0
By Mark Michaelis
Oct 6, 2006

Understanding Objects and Collections in Visual C# 2005
By James Foxall
Aug 25, 2006
In this hour, you're going to start learning about an important programming concept, namely objects. The more you work with Visual C#, the more you'll hear about objects. Visual C# 2005 is a true object-oriented language. This hour isn't going to discuss object-oriented programming in any detail—object-oriented programming is a complex subject and well beyond the scope of this book. Instead, you'll learn about objects in a more general sense.
Understanding Strings and Regular Expressions in Microsoft Visual C# 2005
By Kevin Hoffman
Jul 28, 2006
Regardless of what type of data you're working with or what kind of application you're creating, you will undoubtedly need to work with strings. No matter how the data is stored, the end user always deals in human-readable text. As such, knowing how to work with strings is part of the essential knowledge that any .NET developer needs to make rich and compelling applications. In addition to showing you how to work with strings in the .NET Framework, this chapter will also introduce you to regular expressions.

Generic Classes in C# 2.0
By Paul Kimmel
Nov 11, 2005
Code once. Use many. That's what generics are about. Called templates in C++, C# generics support separating code by algorithm and data structure. For example, the generic list means that you'll never again have to write a strongly typed collection. Paul Kimmel shows just how easy it is to define and use generics, long considered one of the most advanced and difficult idioms. This article is adapted from Paul Kimmel's book C# Express (Addison-Wesley).
