Illustrated C# 2005

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.


Illustrated C# 2012, 4th Edition

This book presents the C# 5.0 language in a uniquely succinct and visual format. Often in programming books, the information can be hidden in a vast sea of words. As a programmer who has over the years used a dozen programming languages, the author understands it can sometimes be difficult to slog through another 1,000 page book of dense text to learn a new language. There are likely many other programmers who feel the same way. To address this situation, this book explains C# 5.0 using figures; short, focused code samples; and clear, concise explanations.
