C# is a radical departure from C and C++, even though many similar elements remain. In C# Essentials, the creators of one of the world's first C# college courses teach C# through step-by-step code examples that draw on their unique insight into what working developers need to know. Pappas and Murray begin by examining the key features of the C# languageand comparing C# to C and C++. Next, they outline practical programming strategies for making the most of C#; then introduce each key C# concept through complete, step-by-step code examples.
If you've worked with C or C++, C# Essentials will help you leverage the skills you've already developed and if you haven't, it'll teach you C# from scratch. Either way, you'll be writing real .NET applications faster than you ever expected.
