About the Author

Karli Watson is the technical director of 3form (www.3form.net), as well as a freelance IT specialist, author, developer, and consultant. For the most part, he immerses himself in .NET (in particular C#) and has written numerous books in the field for several publishers. He specializes in communicating complex ideas in a way that is accessible to anyone with a passion to learn, and spends much of his time playing with new technology to find new things to teach people about.
During those (seemingly few) times where he isn’t doing the above, Karli will probably be wishing he was hurtling down a mountain on a snowboard. Or possibly trying to get his novel published. Either way, you’ll know him by his brightly colored clothes.

Christian Nagel is a software architect, trainer, and consultant, and an associate of Thinktecture, offering training and coaching based on Microsoft .NET technologies. His achievements in the developer community have earned him a position as Microsoft Regional Director and MVP for Visual C#. He enjoys an excellent reputation as an author of several .NET books, such as Professional C#, Pro .NET Network Programming and C# Web Services, and he speaks regularly at international industry conferences.
Christian looks back on more than 15 years of experience as a developer and software architect. He started his computing career on PDP 11 and VAX/VMS, covering a variety of languages and platforms. Since 2000 he has been working with .NET and C#, developing and architecting distributed solutions.

Jacob Hammer Pedersen is a systems developer at Fujitsu Service, Denmark. He’s been programming the PC since the early 90s using languages such as Pascal, Visual Basic, C/C++, and in later years C#. Jacob is an MCSD who works almost exclusively on the Microsoft platform where his expertise includes .NET, COM, COM+/Enterprise Services, SQL Server, and MS Office development. A Danish citizen, he works and lives in Aarhus, Denmark.

Jon D. Reid is the President and Chief Technology Officer for Savitar Corporation, an independent software vendor and consulting company that develops database tools for the Microsoft.NET environment. He has co-authored many .NET books, including Pro Visual Studio .NET, Fast Track to C# Programming, ADO.NET Programmer’s Reference, and Professional SQL Server 2000 XML. Jon would like to thank his family, co-authors, and the team at Wrox for their support and encouragement.

Morgan Skinner began his computing career at a tender age on a Sinclair ZX80 at school, where he was underwhelmed by some code a teacher had written and so began programming in assembly language. After getting hooked on Z80 (which he believes is far better than those paltry 3 registers on the 6502), he graduated through the school’s ZX81s to his own ZX Spectrum.
Since then he’s used all sorts of languages and platforms, including VAX Macro Assembler, Pascal, Modula2, Smalltalk, X86 assembly language, PowerBuilder, C/C++, VB, and currently C#. He’s been programming in .NET since the PDC release in 2000, and liked it so much, he joined Microsoft in 2001. He now works in Premier Support for Developers and spends most of his time assisting customers with C#. You can reach Morgan at http://www.morganskinner.com.

Eric White is an independent software consultant with over 20 years experience in building management information systems and accounting systems. When he isn’t hunched over a screen programming in C#, he will most likely be found with an ice axe in hand, climbing some mountain.

Covers Not Only C# but Also .NET March 15 2006
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a beginning, or perhaps intermediate level book on Microsoft's C# (C-Sharp) programming language used with the Microsoft .NET framework. It covers both the C# language and .NET at a beginner level. It is intended to be usable to everyone from people who have never programmed before to C++ programmers who want to learn the differences Microsoft has put into C#, and as an introduction to the .NET library of code.

As a beginning book, the examples can be programmed using the simpler (and FREE) 'Express' versions of both C# and Visual Studio. The book begins with a discussion of Visual Studio and how to use it. From there it goes on to a very simple console application that simply writes one line of text to the screen. And as you might guess, by the end of the 778 page book, the programs have gotten somewhat more complex.

This kind of programming book covers almost exactly the same material of other beginning books on C#. I find that I like the tone, the style of writing, and the completeness of this book better than a lot of others.

Excellent book Jan. 14 2008
By Abu Saa Leonard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is great for those who have a base knowledge of c# programming but also want to improove their skills. Although it says beginning C# 2005, this book is not for those who want to write their first program.
In covers all basic needs of a junior programmer in order to allow him to experiment and create new programs.

Bettter than the Pro version June 16 2007
By Ron L. Vincent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Even though this is the beginning book it's better than the Pro C# 2005 book written by some of the same authors. I read this book first and the Pro version second. I found that it explains many of the concepts in a more effective way with less words.
Very Helpful Nov. 3 2011

I just got a job programming in C## and needed a good review. This book was perfect for that! Thank you.
Nails the theory and concepts but fails on the examples. Jan. 4 2011
By David - Published on Amazon.com
The examples are somewhat jumbled. There's never a full view of the program and he often uses variables or methods before he defines them. It's like he creates it, then explains it in reverse.
