"Once again, the Deitels have put together a great textbook. The material is easy to read and more importantly the optional ATM case study is realistic, understandable, and detailed enough to get at the heart of working with VB.NET. This book presents fundamental software engineering concepts such as modeling before you code and testing your software thoroughly in an accessible manner for anyone learning how to develop in Visual Basic .NET." —Scott W. Ambler, co-author of The Enterprise Unified Process and Refactoring Databases

Written for programmers with a background in C++, Java or other high-level languages, this book applies the Deitel signature live-code approach to teaching programming and explores Microsoft’s C# language and the new .NET 2.0 in depth. The book is updated for Visual Studio 2005 and C# 2.0 and presents C# concepts in the context of fully tested programs, complete with syntax shading, detailed line-by-line code descriptions, and program outputs. The book features 213 C# applications with 16,800+ lines of proven C# program code and 300+ programming tips that help you build robust applications.

[Important note: This book is intended for the professional market and does not include much of the introductory pedagogy, exercises or end-of-chapter material typically found in our How to Program Series college textbooks. Also, no instructor resources are available. If you are teaching C# in an upcoming college course, check out our Visual C# 2005 How to Program, 2/e and Simply C#, 1/e textbooks.]

Pre-Publication Reviewer Testimonials


“Excellent coverage of developing ASP.NET 2.0 applications, with plenty of sample code. The chapter on exception handling is one of, if not the best such chapters I have seen in the 50+ .NET related books I’ve read and
reviewed. The chapter on Networking is one of the best I have seen.”
—Peter Bromberg, Merrill Lynch, C# MVP

“A comprehensive introduction to XML, and one of the clearest tutorials on Web services I’ve read, with great
examples. An excellent chapter on generics.”
—Gavin Osborne, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology

“A superb job of clearly integrating the theory of relational databases and SQL with ADO.NET!” —Harlan Brewer, University of Cincinnati

“Excellent introduction to .NET collections.” —José Antonio González Seco, Andalucia’s Parlamient

“A beautiful presentation of threads.” —Pavel Tsekov, Caesar BSC

“The ATM OOD/UML case study is excellent! The implementation of the design developed in the early chapters gives the reader a fantastic model of a real world problem. You hit a home run with this one!” —Catherine Wyman, Devry-Phoenix

Simply Series

This Deitel Simply Series combines the our signature live-code approach (emphasizing complete, working programs, rather than code snippets, and always showing sample outputs) with an application-driven methodology, in which readers build real-world applications that incorporate programming fundamentals. Using a step-by-step tutorial approach, readers learn programming basics. Each successive tutorial builds on previous concepts and introduces new programming features. Many Simply Series books also include higher-end topics such as database programming, multimedia and graphics, and Web applications development.

Simply Series Testimonial: "This is a really innovative approach to the presentation of basic programming concepts. The tutorials are subdivided into small, easily understood pieces as a concept program is developed." —Ed Brunjes, Miramar College
