Read the Preface

 

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 code walkthroughs, and program outputs. The book features 213 complete C# applications with almost 17,000 lines of proven C# program code and hundreds of programming tips that help you build robust applications. Read the Preface.

[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. No instructor resources are available. If you are teaching an upcoming C# college or professional training course, check out our Visual C# 2005 How to Program, 2/e and Simply C#, 1/e textbooks (each with full ancillary support). Visual C# 2005 How to Program, 2/e went to the presses this week.]

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've 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

“Overall fantastic coverage on inheritance. The examples give a crystal clear picture of inheritance and make the fundamentals very clear.” —Dharmesh Chauhan, Microsoft

"This book is excellent; a superb mix of theory and application; spot-on accuracy, relevancy and application of case studies to the theory of OS design." —Robert Love, MontaVista Software, Inc.

"Uses a unique teaching style to present, in an unparalleled pedagogical approach, the evolution of fifty years of operating systems research; no other book provides as accessible and comprehensive a tutorial." —Euripides Montagne University of Central Florida

"Deitel understands the Linux kernel very well and is very good at explaining it. Even though I have been a heavy Linux user and SysAdmin for eight years and have hacked both Linux and Unix kernels, I learned a lot." —Bob Toxen Author of Real World Linux Security, 2/e and Contributor to Berkeley Unix

"This is a comprehensive update of the classic book by Harvey Deitel in the light of new developments in operating systems over the past decade.

Simply Series (for the classroom, self-study, and distance learning programs)

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. These books are appropriate for the classroom, for self-study and for distance learning programs.

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
