With Beginning Visual C#, you will learn how to use Visual C# from first principles. Visual C# is an object-oriented programming language designed specifically for programming Microsoft's new platform, the .NET Framework. You'll quickly and easily learn how to write Visual C# code and create your own applications — for both Windows and the Web.

This book will be an indispensable guide as you learn to write C# programs, gradually explaining the key concepts of Visual C# and .NET as your skills develop, with exercises at the end of chapters to test yourself. Starting with a thorough tutorial of the Visual C# language and object-oriented programming, you will progress to learn how to apply your understanding to programming the .NET Framework.
Who is this book for?
Beginning Visual C# is ideal for beginners with little background in programming, and for relatively inexperienced programmers who want to move from a language that doesn't support object-oriented programming techniques. The book moves at a fast enough pace that if you have programmed in another language, then you will still find the book valuable.
