About this book
Illustrated C# 2005 doesnt use the traditional dense prose format of most programming texts. Rather, it presents the C# programming language in a unique visual manner. The book uses three techniques to achieve this: concise text, tables that clarify and summarize language features, and frequent figures and diagrams. Each feature is also illustrated with concise, focused code samples.
The book starts with an overview of the .NET platform and the role played by C#, then quickly delves into the language. It covers the entire C# language, including new features added in C# 2.0 as well as the most complex topics. It's an ideal read if you're a migrating C++ or VB programmer who already knows how languages work.
Despite its title, which might give the impression that it's a lightweight treatment of the language, this book is anything but. With its clean visual format, you'll be able to learn the material more quickly and retain it better than you would with a typical C# 2005 book. Even experienced programmers may come away from it with a deeper understanding of the language.
