The thrust of this chapter is to introduce you to the core aspects of the C# language, including intrinsic data types (both value-based and reference-based); decision and iteration constructs; boxing and unboxing mechanisms; the role of System.Object and basic class construction techniques. Along the way, you also learn how to manipulate CLR strings, arrays, enumerations, and structures using the syntax of C#.
