Signature “Live Code™ Approach” — Language features are presented in the context of a wide variety of complete working programs.
— Features thousands of lines of code in hundreds of complete working programs.
— Enables students to confirm that programs run as expected.
— Students can also download the code from the book's Companion Website (www.prenhall.com/deitel), or from the author's website (www.deitel.com/books/vcsharphtp2008/).
Outstanding, consistent and applied pedagogy:
— Icons throughout identify Software Engineering Observations, Good Programming Practices, Common Programming Errors, Portability Tips, Performance Tips, Testing and Debugging Tips, and Look-and-Feel Observations.
— Full-color presentation, including syntax coloring, code highlighting and extensive comments.
— Self-review questions and answers provide immediate feedback after each chapter
Includes optional "Automated Teller Machine (ATM)"case study on object-oriented design with UML. Walks novices through a clear system design, while still demonstrating key OOD concepts and related UML modeling techniques.
Hundreds of self-review questions and answers, and programming exercises, including both simple and complex exercises that can easily be tailored to the needs of specific courses and instructors.
KEY MESSAGE: Created by world-renowned programming instructors Paul and Harvey Deitel, “Visual C# 2008 How to Program, Third Edition” introduces all facets of the C# 2008 language through the Deitels' signature "Live Code™ Approach", that features hundreds of working programs. KEY TOPICS: This book has been thoroughly updated to reflect the major innovations Microsoft has incorporated in Visual C# 2008 and .NET 3.5; The many new platform features covered include: LINQ (Language Integrated Query), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), ASP.NET Ajax and the Microsoft Ajax Library, Silverlight-based rich Internet application development, and creating Web services with Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). New language features introduced in this edition: automatic properties, object initializers, partial classes and methods, anonymous methods, Lambda expressions, extension methods, anonymous types, and collection initializers. Extensively updated coverage of delegates.and more sophisticated techniques, including searching, sorting, data structures, generics, and collections. Appendices provide essential programming reference material on topics ranging from number systems to the Visual Studio Debugger, UML 2 to Unicode and ASCII. Appropriate for all basic-to-intermediate level Visual C# 2008 programmers.
