Thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2010, Computing with C# and the .NET Framework, Second Edition carefully introduces object-oriented and event-driven programming with numerous examples, so students can grasp these difficult concepts and then apply them. Appropriate for the two-term CS1 and introductory C# programming courses, this text takes a spiral approach to teach objects, starting with simple intuitive examples, then simple class design, and progresses to the more difficult aspects of inheritance and polymorphism. Similarly with events, the spiral approach is used to introduce simple paint event first, proceeding to user interfaces and event handlers. The many and varied types of exercises provide students with the practice they need to fully comprehend this popular programming language. The basics are covered including fundamentals of C#, concepts of object-oriented and event-driven programming, as well as more advanced topics, including data structures, threads, networking, database access, XML, and Web programming. Computing with C# and the .NET Framework, Second Edition is the comprehensive one-volume reference for modern C#-based .NET technology!
