Book Description

Learning a new programming language might seem like a challenging task. You may have looked at coding in the past, and felt it was too confusing and big to tackle. Our Mastering C# Beginner’s Guide will take you, step by step, through the process of learning one of the best programming languages out there. In a matter of no time, you will be able to write code like a professional.

C# is one of the most widely used programming languages available, and for a good reason. Developed by Microsoft, it has a simplified syntax, type safety, garbage collection, cross-language capabilities and developer support. It offers high productivity of rapid application development languages with the dynamic power of C and C++. Updated to cover the new features of C#, including dynamic binding, named and optional parameters, and covariant and contravariant generic types, Mastering C# takes the language to the next level by promoting the ability to cleanly run programs that don’t rely on static type definitions. 

In this book, concepts are broken down into simple steps to make sure that you can easily master the C# language even if you have never tried coding before. Carefully selected C# examples illustrate all concepts. In addition, the output for all examples are provided immediately so you do not have to wait till you have access to your computer to test the examples. Topics are handpicked to give you a proper exposure to C#, while not overwhelming with too much information. 

Mastering C# also aims to cover the fundamentals of programming. It aims to teach you how to define and use variables, how to manage primitive data structures (such as numbers), how to organize logical statements, how to print on the console, how to apply arrays, work with numeral systems, how to set and use methods, and create objects. Along with the basic programming knowledge, Mastering C# will help you understand more complicated concepts such as string processing, exception handling, using complex data structures (like trees and hash tables), defining custom classes and working with LINQ queries. The concepts of object-oriented programming (OOP) – an established approach in modern software development – is covered in depth as well.

Moreover, you will get a complete methodology for solving programming problems, as well as algorithmic problems in general. This gives you the opportunity to become a master programmer who has in-depth knowledge of programming and technology. After you acquire the fundamentals of programming, it will become much easier for you to read and learn databases and web applications, and you will understand what you read the new material much easier rather than if you directly begin learning SQL, ASP.NET, AJAX, XAML or WinRT.

 

All in all, Mastering C# is the definitive, must-have reference for any developer who wants to understand C#. This knowledge will enable you to turn your original and imaginative ideas into a real-world practical application.
