This book covers mostly the new features of C# and does assume you have some knowledge of C. It promotes subjects that interface with the internet.
This book will give you a good idea of what the C# language can accomplish. It covers developing a web project, using extensible markup language (XML), Silverlight, debugging, data on collections, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Language Integrated Query (LINQ). It develops simple projects in these areas. None of this is in depth, so you feel that you're helpless to do the simplest program without line-by-line instruction. The book is OK within this limited framework, but if you want to learn to program, go elsewhere.
This book delivers as promised. It is a good place for a new person to start developing. It has enough detail and examples to get some basic programs working and get a new person excited about development, without getting too detailed and deep as to scare off or bore a new developer.
I read this to evaluate it for recommendation to other people. And I will highly recommend it. I also read it as an intro to a couple topics that are new to me, and it is a great book for that too.
I say these things having been a Microsoft Certififed trainer for 9 years and a developer for almost 30 years.
I would say it is a little lite in content for the lst price. But a good bargin at the Amazon price.
