Live in fragments no longer, only connect."

-Edgar Morgan Foster

Welcome to C# and the world of Windows, Internet and Web programming with Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET 2.0 platform! This book presents leading-edge computing technologies to software developers and IT professionals.
At Deitel & Associates, we write computer science textbooks for college students and professional books for software developers. We also teach this material in industry seminars at organizations worldwide.
This book was a joy to create. To start, we put the previous edition under the microscope:
  • We audited our C# presentation against the most recent Ecma and Microsoft C# Language Specifications, which can be found at www.ecma-international.org/publications/standards/Ecma-334.html and msdn.microsoft.com/vcsharp/programming/language/, respectively.
  • All of the chapters have been significantly updated and upgraded.
  • We changed to an early classes and objects pedagogy. Now readers build reusable classes starting in Chapter 4.
  • We updated our object-oriented presentation to use the latest version of the UML (Unified Modeling Language)-UML 2.0-the industry-standard graphical language for modeling object-oriented systems.
  • We added an optional OOD/UML automated teller machine (ATM) case study in Chapters 1, 3-9 and 11. The case study includes a complete C# code implementation of the ATM.
  • We added several multi-section object-oriented programming case studies.
  • We incorporated key new features of Microsoft's latest release of C#-Visual C# 2005-and added discussions on generics, .NET remoting and debugging.
  • We significantly enhanced our treatment of XML, ADO.NET, ASP.NET and Web services.
  • All of this has been carefully scrutinized by a team of distinguished .NET industry developers, academic professionals and members of the Microsoft C# development team.
Who Should Read This Book
We have several C# publications, intended for different audiences.
C# for Programmers, 2/e, is part of the Deitel® Developer Series, intended for professional software developers who want a deep treatment of a new technology with minimal introductory material. The book emphasizes achieving program clarity through the proven techniques of structured programming, object-oriented programming (OOP) and event-driven programming. It continues with upper-level topics such as XML, ASP.NET 2.0, ADO.NET 2.0 and Web services. Unlike our How to Program Series college textbooks, the Deitel® Developer Series books do not include the extensive pedagogic features and ancillary support materials required for college courses.
C# for Programmers, 2/e presents many complete, working C# programs and depicts their inputs and outputs in actual screen shots of running programs. This is our signature "live-code" approach-we present concepts in the context of complete working programs. The book's source code is available free for download at www.deitel.com/books/csharpforprogrammers2/. We assume in our Chapter 1 "test-drive" instructions that you extract these examples to the C:\ folder on your computer. This will create an examples folder that contains subfolders for each chapter (e.g., ch01, ch02, etc.).
As you read this book, if you have questions, send an e-mail to deitel@deitel.com; we will respond promptly.
