C# Essentials
By Ben Albahari, Peter Drayton, Brad Merrill
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: February 2001
Pages: 216

Concise but thorough, C# Essentials introduces the brand-new Microsoft C# programming language and the Microsoft .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) and Base Class Libraries (BCL) that support it. The compact format and terse presentation of key concepts serve as a roadmap to the online documentation included with the Microsoft .NET Framework SDK; the many examples provide much-needed context.In addition to overviews of C#, the CLR, and the BCL, C# Essentials includes coverage of:

  • Every C# language element and its syntax, in reference format
  • The major C# datatypes, with code examples
  • Basic C# programming tasks
  • Interoperations with legacy Win32 APIs and COM components, and the use of C/C++ style pointers within the managed context of the CLR.
C# Essentials is an inexpensive way for experienced programmers to get up to speed quickly on the language best suited to developing web applications and services on the new Microsoft .NET platform.

C# Essentials Review

By John Archer

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media C# Essentials:

This book was a very intense, exciting read. Very thorough in a short amount of pages. Just enough to get you started effectively. The examples are great, after a two-day long read I'm already up and running with C# now! I would not recommend this book to beginning programmers, a solid C or C++ background is needed. Great Book!

C# Essentials Review

By Josef Knaus

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media C# Essentials:

This book reminds me to the C-Reference from Kernighan & Ritchie, to the C++ Reference from Stroustrup.

I am almost sure that I will use it for C# as often as the two described. It gives a very good overview about C# and organized in only 180 pages.
